Gilles "The Fish" Poisson

Real name: Charles Berger

One of the top heels in Montreal in the 1970s. Used a bearhug as his finisher. Wrestled briefly as Louis Cyr in the WWWF, managed by Freddie Blassie. Wrestled in the AWA as Pierre Poisson. Was still wrestling in Montreal in 1987. I believe he had some legal problems after his wrestling career ended.

Prominent Titles:

  • Grand Prix tag champion, with Killer Kowalski, 1973
  • Stampede North American champion, 1976
  • International tag champion (Montreal), with Sailor White, 1982
