PCO Claims He Turned Down IMPACT Offer In Hopes of WWE Return

pco impact wrestling offer turned down wwe undertaker

Pierre Carl Ouellet, better known these days as PCO, claims he turned down an offer from IMPACT Wrestling in hopes of returning to WWE.

The 50-year-old 3-time WWE tag team champ spoke with Grizzly Media about what he hopes to accomplish in the latest phase of his career.

“My goal is to fight the Undertaker at Wrestlemania 35. My PCO character is a bit like a French Frankeinstein, and is tailor-made to fight the Deadman,” said PCO “I am presently in an incredible form, and I am in all the major events of the independent scene. I declined an offer from TNA because I really believe that I can reach WWE for one last run.”

The wrestler did not reveal when IMPACT made the offer. 

Old school fans will remember PCO as half of the Quebecers tag team with Jacques Rougeau in the mid-90s.  In 1995, WWE repackaged him as a pirate — a character regularly mentioned on the Something To Wrestle podcast.

PCO’s 21st century “coming out” party of sorts took place at Joey Janela’s Spring Break 2 during a brutal battle with Walter. Since then, he’s been one of the hottest acts on the independent scene.

If you haven’t seen any of his training videos, you’re in luck! We posted a couple below.

WARNING: Turn the sound down if anyone is within earshot. It gets strange …

    Yeah, that’s too bad if true. I was curious if Callis and D’Amore were going to bring him in. I guess not.

    • #WOKEN Lou DiFigliano

      Thought he was a good wrestler back in the day. Loved the Quebecers… But, I gotta think the Taker thing might be a long shot… Then again, I can’t remember if Carl was in Taker’s Krew.

        I don’t know if he was or wasn’t, but reports at the time said he didn’t get along with the Kliq and that’s how he ended up gone. I would think that being in with Taker would’ve saved him, though of course, that’s just a guess.

        • #WOKEN Lou DiFigliano

          Just read up on it. Carl was in with the Hart’s… He def pissed the Kliq off.

        Not in abillion years would he even sniff a ring at WrestleMania let alone against taker. Cena will face him next year in his last match most likely. with Cena winning kinda llke hbk retiring flair. It doesn’t matter at all who he was friends with 24 years ago.

  • Jonas LaClaque

    this guy is Kevin Owen’s answer to Braun Strowman make it happen WWE

    • roger

      Um. No

  • Mike Roche

    I’m sorry but that’s just not gonna happen. NXT if he’s lucky, as a player/Coach. But Mania against Taker. I don’t think so. This isn’t the mid 90s when Taker takes on a different monster every year.

    If it’s not a dream match/money making match, it’s not happening.

  • Washington Park

    Sad that these guys can never give it up. Reminds me of 78 year old Frank Hickey who Brien Christopher brought out as a surprise tag team partner. “I might be old, but I got experience.”

  • H!& Sóttę RPG 3K

    Never saw or heard about this guy to be honest. Where did he appear in the mid 80’s? 😟😟

    • jaykayDX

      Mid-’90s – he had a pirate gimmick and had a short feud with Bret Hart before unceremoniously disappearing – due to friction with teh kliq. The more I hear about the kliq ruining wrestlers careers, the more I hate them.

      • H!& Sóttę RPG 3K

        Truly, there has been variius stories about how that faction & especially, Shawn Michaels sabotaging careers and almost giving birth to a locker room conflict against the Harts. The kliq has been one of the most notorious groups in wrestling history. It’s still weird to see how people respect Shawn whenever he appears on television despite his notorious history

  • jaykayDX

    …Aaaaaand the award for most deluded wrestler goes to ……

  • TheHotComment

    He’s a terrible wrestler…He’s not going to WWE anytime soon…I doubt TNA (IF THAT COMPANY STILL EXIST)
    Offered him a contract
