WWE: Former Star Carl Ouellet Retires From Professional Wrestling

Jason TaylorCorrespondent IFebruary 10, 2011

After a 24-year career in the squared circle, former WWE star Carl Ouellet (pictured right) has hung up his tights and retired from professional wrestling.

Ouellet made the announcement on Tuesday during a radio interview with Quebec's largest radio station, CKAC.

Ouellet wrestled under several aliases during his career, but was best known to WWE fans as Pierre of The Quebecers

Ouellet came to WWE in 1993 with Jacques Rougeau as his tag team partner, and as The Quebecers, they quickly moved up the tag team ranks.

On Sept. 13, 1993, they defeated the Steiner Brothers to win their first of three WWE (WWF) World Tag Team Championships.

On April 26, 1994, The Quebecers lost the titles to The Headshrinkers on Monday Night Raw. The team disbanded soon afterwards due to the retirement of Rougeau.

Ouellet returned as a singles wrestler in 1995, and was known as Jean-Pierre Lafitte. Unfortunately, Ouellet was unable to duplicate his success as a singles competitor.

Ouellet's WWE career spanned from 1993-1995 and 1998-2000. He also had stints in WCW, ECW and TNA. 

He also wrestled for several other wrestling promotions throughout the world. Ouellet last wrestled in June 2010 against TNA star Desmond Wolfe.

Ouellet wrestled throughout his career with a glass eye. At the age of 12, he was accidentally shot by a friend with a pellet gun.
