Now known as PCO, Pierre Carl Oullet has spent decades in the world of professional wrestling, debuting all the way back in 1987 and working for WCW, WWE, IMPACT, and numerous other promotions.

Once known for being one half of a tag team alongside Jacques Rougeau, Oullet retired from the wrestling business in 2011. However, in 2016, he made a return to the industry after undergoing an incredible physical transformation.

Now known as PCO, he portrayed a monster who was part man, part science creation, producing vignettes that showed him being created as the perfect wrestling machine. In 2018 he signed with ROH, establishing himself as a dominant force and even winning the ROH World Championship. At the age of 55, he’s still going strong, and signed with IMPACT Wresting in 2022.

Injury struck, however, at the most recent edition of IMPACT Rebellion on April 16th. During a Last Rites Match against Eddie Edwards, Oullet was thrown into the ring ropes, which dislocated his shoulder. He continued the match despite the injury, even taking a Tiger Driver and German suplex from Edwards in the immediate aftermath.

Eventually, the star popped his own shoulder back into place by slamming it against the ring post. He finished the match and was victorious without without seeking medical attention. At this time, it’s unknown how severe the shoulder injury is or whether it will require the star to take time away from the ring.

Graphic footage of the injury can bee seen below, along with PCO’s response to the situation.

Former WCW Star PCO Spoke About A Possible WWE Return Under Triple H

When Triple H became WWE’s Chief Content Officer after Vince McMahon’s retirement in July, he began bringing back a number of former stars. Prior to McMahon’s return and WWE’s sale to Endeavor, PCO was asked if he would consider returning to the sports entertainment giant for the first time since leaving in 2000. Speaking to Nick Hausman of WrestlingInc back in September, the star had this to say:

“Yeah, I think so. I don’t think I had a bad relationship with Vince [McMahon], but I think new blood and guys like Paul ‘Triple H,’ I mean other than I had my altercation with his best buddies at the time, I remember when he came in the WWE from WCW, we rode together. We did a bunch of shows where we shared a car and we were on the road together for almost two, three weeks, almost a month.”
