I still just can't get over what this guy's done to keep his career going. His work is good to great and his commitment to the craft is insane (just look at the chest scar for a recorded gimmick that he's got a battery in his now invincible cyborg body!)

I'll confess that I'm just not into the PCO thing.  The bumps, in isolation, are eye-popping, and there is a certain freak show factor involved in seeing a guy in his state do this stuff...but I think the matches mostly stink.  He is a shambling mess outside of GIF form.

I think his shambling no fear of dying approach works in certain matches and against certain opponents, but it definitely isn't a 100% sure thing when you check him out. That said I like that we have a 50 year old indie Undertaker/Sabu hybrid out there as he brings something that others aren't.

I'm glad PCO is doing his thing. I don't get it, I'm not a huge fan of it...but kudos to him for taking the ball and running with it.

I was watching some random clip the other night with The Quebecer's and it didn't dawn me then, but it did just now that PCO might have the greatest comeback story ever. Can you honestly say if you saw that guy in 1993 you would think that in 2019 he'd be this insane monster?

I love when PCO and Marty Scurll team; they incorporate the Quebecers Boston crab/second rope leg drop combo.

I remember Dylan (he used to post here awhile a back for newer members) started tweeting about PCO a bit before the Mania weekend match was announced, and at first I didn't even put it together in my head that it was the same guy from the 90's.  Then I was just kinda surprised/confused. I mean, he was good back in the day, but rarely got real chances to show it on major shows, and I hadn't seen in him in over a decade. 

So, of course, I had to see this shit. And here he is, 50, doing crazy strong man shit on Twitter, and just flat out killing himself in front of a few hundred people. Then the Mania weekend happened, and he was off and running.

I love that spot.

I love the Frankenstein's Monster gimmick but I also miss old school Ouelette who could do standing dropkicks and somersault cannonballs.

PCO is about as mobile as the Universal Studios version of the monster that forms the template of his gimmick and not in a good way.

I'm not crazy about his singles matches but as Nice Guy Eddie pointed out, he makes a good strong man / hot tag for the Beauty / Beast tag team he's in with Marty Scuril.

The gimmick works better in tag matches and multi-man matches like above mentioned match against Jeff Cobb and Brody King. I loved that match.
