PCO Says IWS Is Trying To Put Together Him Against Chris Jericho For 20th Anniversary Show

PCO is one of the biggest names on the Independent scene right now.

Pierre Carl Ouellet re-emerged as PCO earlier this year, having a show stealing match with WALTER at Joey Janela's Spring Break 2. Speaking to Sean Waltman on X-Pac 1, 2, 360; PCO detailed how the match with WALTER came together.

"Someone from Indiana wanted me to wrestle for him and he gave me two dates: January 13 or April 21. I figured January 13, I wasn't ready for myself to be seen in the states. But I knew where I wanted to be around WrestleMania so I chose that date. There was a snowstorm in Montreal, I spent six hours in the aircraft, I almost didn't make it to the show. I got there 15 minutes before my match. I had a great match with Ethan Page. Joey Janela was there in the dressing room, saw the match, and wanted to book me for Spring Break. The match with WALTER is what triggered everything else."

The bout with Ethan Page took place at BLP We're Not The Mounties. Janela wrestled Brian Pillman II on the show. 

With PCO's stock skyrocketing and Independent wrestlers taking more creative control, Waltman wondered if PCO had any plans to run a big show in his hometown of Montreal. PCO didn't seem keen on the idea of leaving the US to do his own thing, but did let out that Montreal based IWS is trying to put together a big match next year.

"There's something coming up, maybe with the IWS. It's going to be their 20th Anniversary on March 23. They're talking about maybe doing me -- they're trying to get Chris Jericho to work with me. I don't know if it's going to go through. I don't know where Chris is at right now or what he wants to do. They want to make it so big because it's their 20th Anniversary."

Jericho has called his own shots since leaving WWE full-time in 2017. He's wrestled in NJPW, winning the IWGP Intercontinental Title, and put together his own wrestling cruise. PCO noted that he teamed with Sid at the Fifth Anniversary and wrestled Kevin Nash at the Tenth Anniversary. 

Earlier this month, Jericho mentioned that he didn't realize PCO and Pierre Carl Ouellet were the same person.
