PCO was a recent guest on “The Rad Turtles Wrestling Podcast”. During the interview, he discussed his partnership with Destro that allows him to release weekly videos as well as the origin of the PCO character. Here are the highlights:
On The Destro Videos:
We want to be so creative and we don’t want to do something just to do something. We wanted it to really mean something for everyone and make it a parallel to my career. It represents the tough times that I went through and fighting my way back into where I’m at now. That was the analogy that we wanted to do there with the videos that come out every Monday. The championship belt people see has been a symbol in the videos as to what we’re fighting for and where we want to be.
On The Origins Of His Character:
It was Destro’s idea and we we’re shooting a video for my match with Walter Wrestlemania 34 weekend just before the Walter match. I was getting hit by frying pans to get used the chops of Walter. Destro had mentioned to me the way I walk is like Frankenstein. I said to him, it’s funny that you say that because my whole career, I’ve looked for a character that fit my style. I could never put my finger on it. All the crazy bumps that I take and crazy things that I like doing and love doing now It’s going to work and it’s going to make sense. Before it wasn’t making sense but now it makes sense. That’s how it all began and was creation 1 of PCO ‘The French Canadian Frankenstein’.
