PCO (Carl Ouellet), who has built a second career as a monster powerhouse on the indies at the age of 50, is headed to ROH.
MLW confirmed that Ouellet left the promotion and would be unable to fulfill his remaining dates, saying he had the best offer of his career, which immediately led to speculation it was WWE. However, the offer came from ROH.
Ouellet's first career was as Carl Wallace in Puerto Rico, and then Pierre of the Quebecers tag team and finally Jean-Pierre Lafitte, a pirate, from 1987 to 2000, which included being a star in Puerto Rico, a tag team champion in WWF with Jacques Rougeau, and someone on the roster in WCW.
He bounced around the independent scene, mostly in Quebec, until announcing his retirement in 2011.
He returned in 2016 with a new gimmick as The French Frankenstein, PCO, and started generating buzz, particularly after a match with WALTER in New Orleans over WrestleMania weekend.
Also departing MLW for another offer was Brody King, who has also pulled out of all his dates with MLW.
