– The 2011 Quebec Wrestling Awards and Hall of Fame inductees were just
released with El Generico winning Wrestler of the year award and the
Edouard Carpentier Memorial Award for best flying wrestler. LuFisto was
named Female Wrestler of the year. The Super Smash Bros. were named best
tag team and Quebec City’s NSPW won the Promotion of the Year award.
Kevin Steen’s storyline with ROH was the News Story of the year. Also,
former wrestler mainly from the 40’s and 50’s, Larry Moquin, was voted
in the Quebec Wrestling HOF as well as “The Original” Sheik. Moquin was
second to Yvon Robert in popularity but never achieved what Robert did.
Still, he was a huge name back in those years and even booked the
territory under Eddie Quinn at one point. He also wrestled in France
for a certain period of time, discovering with Frank Valois a young
Edouard Carpentier. He stopped wrestling in the 60’s but came back in
the 70’s for a last run with Grand-Prix Wrestling. The Sheik mainly
wrestled in Montreal at the end of the 60’s and early 70’s for the
Rougeau’s Allstar Wrestling, wrestling Jacques Rougeau Sr on numerous
occasions. The two of them wrestled the co main-event of the July 1972
Jarry Park show that drew 26,237 fans. He was one of the most hated
wrestlers at the time as he was managed by Montreal’s famous manager,
Eddy “The Brain” Creatchman. For full results of the Quebec Wrestling
Awards, longer biographies of the newest inductees in the HOF, as well
as all the results and inductees from previous years, you can check out
