SLAM! Wrestling Canadian Hall of Fame: Pierre Carl Ouellet

The Quebecers, Ouellet, left and Rougeau at our CANOE offices March 27, 1998. -- John Powell, CANOE.

REAL NAME: Carl Ouellet
6'1", 300 pounds
BORN: December 30, 1967 in Ville Ste-Catherine, Quebec
ALIASES/ NICKNAMES: Jean-Pierre Lafitte, The Pirate, Killer Karl Wallace, Pierre Ouellette, one half of the Super Bees with Eddie Watts

  Pierre Carl Ouellet was an unknown until Jacques Rougeau met him in Puerto Rico in 1993. He had been travelling here and there, but never made a name for himself.

  After some time away from the WWF, Rougeau was ready to go back and took Ouellet as his tag partner. The Quebecers were formed, with Johnny Polo (now Raven in WCW) as their manager. They held the WWF tag titles on three occasions, but Canadians everywhere will remember their first win -- with much help from Johnny Polo (decked out in a Montreal Canadiens jersey) and a hockey stick.

  Later, Rougeau decided he had had enough again, and Ouellet wrestled as a singles wrestler as The Pirate for about a year in the WWF. He had a feud with Bret Hart, and a double countout match against then-champ Kevin Nash in Montreal. But the gimmick didn't really ever take hold.

  But when Rougeau decided to lace up the boots again, the two were signed by WCW as the Amazing French Connection. They were the same tag team, but never hit the heights in WCW that they had in the WWF. In mid-1997, they were released by WCW.
  Ouellet uses a Cannonball as his finishing move. He wears an eye
patch over his right eye because he lost that eye when he was 12 after an accident with a gun.

 In early 1998, the Quebecers returned to the WWF. That didn't last, however, and Ouellet found himself on a WWF deal, just sitting on the sidelines. He made a couple of trips to Japan as well.

    Memories

      I remember Carl Ouellet at a family party! Carl Ouellet is my cousin but I have to admit that I saw him only one time. Anyway, I think that he's a great "Canadian LumberJack Style Wrestler". I like to see him wrestle with Rougeau, one of the greatest Canadian Wrestler. The only thing that I hate is that he's back in the WWF...

     I remember seeing Pierre Carl Ouellet at Famous Players Centre Laval in Laval, Quebec. He arrived with Jacques Rougeau at the time they were the AFC in WCW. PCO was wearing an nWo t-shirt perhaps trying to give us a hint he and Jacques would join the then growing faction. Well I am glad they are back in the WWF.

      I saw him 3 times and he is a great man. He and Jacques Rougeau were my favorite wrestlers in the WWF in the early 90's. I didn't like at all the pirate story. When he returned to the ring of WCW with Rougeau for the Amazing French Canadians, I loved this team much better than the Quebecers of the early 90's. When they returned to the WWF, I was happy. But Rougeau is too slow for this sport,he can't give it anymore,he is finished. Carl Ouellet should go to the ring by himself with a good gimmick in WCW or WWF.

      I remember Carl Oullette from the early 1990's (I think). I helped get talent for a one-time promoter and Louis Laurence suggested him to me. He came to wrestle at a small card in Toronto, which also featured Steve DiSalvo and Michel Payette (sp?)
      Carl stayed at my house. What a sweetheart! Back then, his English wasn't that good and my French was worse, but we got along great, kept in touch for a while after that...and eventually lost touch.

     I remember Pierre Carl Oulette for his feud he had in September of 1995 with Bret Hart and he stole Bret's leather jacket and then eventually met at the "In Your House" Pay-Per View.

     The most amazing wrestler from Quebec is back in WCW. Carl Ouellet's cannonball will once again be heard all over WCW wrestling ring. I hope WCW will give him what he truly deserves -- a championship belt.
