Former NHL enforcer Dave Morissette found out the hard way what happens when you touch PCO’s ROH World Championship belt without asking permission.
Everything was going smoothly during PCO and his manager D.Destro’s appearance earlier this week on “Dave Morissette en Direct,” a popular sports talk show on Canadian French-language network TVA Sports, until Morissette made the mistake of touching the belt.
Destro yelled at Morissette for his breach of etiquette, and when Morissette failed to immediately let go of the belt, PCO snapped and chokeslammed him through a table.

As PCO and Destro stormed off the set, crew members tended to the shaken Morissette. After the incident, a remorseful PCO attributed his assault on Morissette to suffering an electrical malfunction after he thought Morissette put his hands on Destro.
Fortunately, Morissette was not seriously injured. A former left wing for the Montreal Canadiens, he is best known for getting the better of legendary NHL tough guy Bob Probert in a 1998 brawl during a game between the Canadiens and Chicago Blackhawks.
PCO Monster Mania has been running wild all over Canada ever since the Montreal native won the ROH World Title from RUSH at Final Battle in Baltimore on Dec. 13.
On Jan. 6, PCO was given a hometown hero’s welcome before 21,000 hockey fans at Montreal’s Bell Centre, where has was an honored guest of the Canadiens for their game against the Winnipeg Jets. ET Canada and Le Journal de Montreal have also covered PCO’s incredible journey to the world championship.

As the media requests for PCO continue to pour in from the U.S. as well as Canada, here’s a friendly word of advice for any journalists who interview PCO:
Don’t touch the belt without asking.
