New interview with PCO.
Pierre Carl Ouellet has brought new life into his professional wrestling career. Once known as one-half of the former 3-time WWF Tag Team Champions 'The Quebecers', PCO at the age of 50-years old has become one of the more popular wrestlers on the independent scene. Clips of PCO have gone viral on social media such as his moonsault from the top rope to the outside and his promo videos. The man who says he is not human has done enough thus far on the independent scene that he's gained the interest of Ring Of Honor to the point that they've offer him a contract and he has reportedly signed said contract.
PCO has not deemed the rumors of him signing with Ring Of Honor false as he has been retweeting all that has to do with him signing with the company. He was also the most recent guest on 'Main Event Radio' and although PCO did not mention Ring Of Honor by name in the quote below, he stated that the exclusive contract he signed is the best deal of his entire career.
"It’s the best deal in my entire career. Between the opportunities they are giving me, and the money involved, it is my best deal ever." He said. "It is only the beginning of a new adventure, a good challenge. I’m a bit stressed but I feed off a good challenge like this. It gives me a huge chance to step up to another level and be able to accomplish that. It is something great. I’m hoping for things to turn out the way I want them to."
PCO made his presence felt this past April during WrestleMania weekend at Joey Janela's Spring Break II where he had a one-on-one match with newly-signed NXT U.K. star WALTER. The match is highly regarded by those who viewed it and once it was over PCO took off in terms of being booked for a number of shows around the world. He reflected on that match with WALTER and stated that when Joey Janela initially approached him about it, he didn't want that much money but just wanted an opportunity.
"I was working in 2017 around different promotions in Quebec and Ontario and I got in touch with a promoter in Indiana who wanted to bring me in for a match in January 2018. It was a snowstorm and I barely made it in time. The flight landed and I headed right there for my match against All Ego Ethan Page. The crowd was stunned and chanting 'This is Awesome' and 'You’ve still got it'. On the way back to the hotel, Joey Janela asked me if I wanted to be a part of the Joey Janela Spring Break. He was telling me that he had a big buzz for the first one the year before and there were now huge expectations for the 2nd one." PCO continued, "So he wanted to put me in a match against the big German guy WALTER. I took the deal, didn’t ask for much money, I just wanted the exposure and the break. They asked me if I would drive there [from Montreal] and it took me 40 hours to get there. It felt exactly like Rocky 4 when they did my introduction. It was a sold out show, but the reaction was so cold. They didn’t care really at first. Then the way the match started with the chops back and forth, with my purple chest, and it turned into a real war. Then I hit a split-legged moonsault, a dive off the top rope, moonsault to the floor, all kinds of moves like that, and on the second exchange of chops we were going from one corner to the other and crowd erupted like in the movie Rocky 4. Chanting 'PCO', PCO, PCO'. When I got the win, with the swanton bomb - one, two, three it was pandemonium. On Twitter everyone was talking about the match, about the comeback. It was unbelievable, to steal the show and be part of the best match of WrestleMania weekend."
