D Destro on 25-year-long association with PCO

Featuring in an episode of the WINCLY podcast, D Destro spoke about his managerial role with PCO (Pierre Carl Ouellet). The 51-year-old signed a contract with Ring of Honor (ROH) in 2018 and a big chunk for that signing goes to D Destro.

Recollecting how he began working with the Canadian wrestler, Destro shared that their association went a long way back, around two-and-a-half decades. But he added that he was not keen on joining PCO as his manager since he had young children back at that time.

However, once his children grew older and PCO made an offer again, in 2016, he had no problems in taking up the role. "He (PCO) asked me about 20 years ago to help him but I really wasn't into strongman and feats of strength [contests].

My children were also young so I didn't want to go in that part of his life. When he came back [in 2016], my kids were older and PCO came in my life at a good time. He came to me and I said, 'Yes, I want to help you.'

In my mind, I wanted to help him bring back the fan in me that loved wrestling as a kid," shared D Destro. PCO debuted in 1987 and has gone on to have a long career in pro wrestling. He has had stints with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), World Championship Wrestling (WCW), Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) and Total Nonstop Action (TNA) among others.

He also was part of the Indie circuit on two separate occasions, the first between 2005 and 2011, and the second between 2016 and 2018.
