Puerto Rican Wrestling News & Notes

From Alfred Feliciano:

As the World Wrestling Council celebrated their 43rd-anniversary show this past October, the show as dedicated to Pierre Martel, who passed away at the age of 72 after a long battle with cancer.  Martel held the WWC World Tag Team championships and the WWC North American Tag Team championships with his brother the late Michel Martel.  After Michel's death, Pierre Martel got into a violent feud with Invader #1.  In the late 1970's Martel started to team with WWE Hall of Famer Mr. Fuji, until Fuji turned on Martel, turning Martel face.  Martel would then go on in the early 1980's to have another reign as the WWC World Tag Team and WWC North American Tag Team champion with the "Montreal Italian Stallion" Gino Della Serra.  Martel then went to the WWE in the mid-1980's as Frenchy Martin, the manager of Dino Bravo.  After his run in the WWE was over, he returned to WWC in 1990.

Part of the WWC 43rd Anniversary event was TNA World Tag Team champion Brother Nero, Alberto Del Rio, El Hijo de Dos Caras, Black Pain, The Mighty Ursus, WWE RAW superstars The Shining Stars (Epico & Primo), La Rosa Negra.  WWE Smackdown Live Diva Paige, who is also Alberto Del Rio's fiance was in attendance at the event.  Here are some video highlights as a prelude to their upcoming 2016 Lockout event.
