• WWF Veteran Stole Bret Hart’s Sunglasses From Yokozuna’s Kid
Old School WWF Veteran Quebecer Pierre (Pierre Carl Ouellet, now known as PCO) was recently interviewed on the WrestleRoasts podcast, where he talked about his 1995 World Wrestling Federation run as ‘Jean-Pierre LaFitte’.
He also talked about his famous In Your House 3 match against WWF Legend Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart.
Here’s what the former 3-time WWF Tag Team Champion had to say:
“I love Bret. I mean Bret was so cool with me. He’s been so business, like he would give me his phone number, I would call him at home. He really wanted to have the best matches he could with me and the match.
That’s how we started the connection, me and Bret and then after that when I became the pirate he goes on and saying that it’s probably the lamest storyline he’s been involved in.
My reaction was, ‘At least they want to do something with it,’ you know? It’s not like they were not going to do anything.
At first I stole I think it was Savio Vega’s flag cause he used to go the ring with a flag all the time.
Then it was a kid who wore Bret’s glasses when after his matches he’d always give his pair of glasses and then I stole it from the kid which was Yokozuna’s kid, it was like pre-arranged a little bit cause you just don’t go in the crowd and take glasses from a kid, you know?
So I was happy because they were doing something with me and then I got to feud with Bret and Bret was the top man at the time. He was the man. He was the guy who had been the World Champ and all that.
He was basically putting the company on his shoulders quite a lot so I was super thrilled even though it was a lame storyline.”
