"I remember when we were first talking to go to WWF [now WWE], Raymond and I, and we were coming to Hulk Hogan and just meeting him in the dressing room and sitting with him in the same dressing room was, it was so impressive."
Jacques Rougeau also described how the boys all wanted to be on the same show as Hogan because everyone knew it would be a sold out show and a good time:
"And I remember being in the territory, every night three towns were running around the world, on the same night it was three towns and we were always coming in to see the booking sheet, when coming into the dressing room on the wall, to see if Hulk was on your card. If Hulk was on your card, you know it was sold out, you know it was going to be a great evening. Although I was a companion in the dressing room and a partner in the business, I was a mark. I was a groupie of him [Hulk Hogan] and just sitting in the same dressing room as him was amazing."
