Superstars of Yesterday Series: Where are they Now?: Rick Martel

By : WrestlingDotCom News Posted on

Rick Martel was one of professional wrestling biggest “bad guys” in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Martel got his start in pro wrestling back in 1975 in Florida at the young age of 19.

Martel held the American Wrestling Association World Tag Team Titles on two separate occasions with his then partner Garea.

Martel was one of the biggest stars in WWE, including lasting 53 minutes in the Royal Rumble. Martel took some time off before resurfacing in WCW in 1997. “Everything had changed when I got to WCW. I trained really hard before getting back into the ring, because I didn’t want to come back and look like I didn’t belong there. I was happy, but unfortunately, I injured my knee – I knew it was bad the minute it happened. In 25 years I hadn’t had an injury like it, and it just was one of those ‘damn’ moments,” remembered Martel. “So I trained again, ready to come back to the ring, and trying to protect my knee in a match against Stevie Ray, I injured my neck. At that very moment, I said, ‘That’s it, it’s over.’”

Rick signature move was the famous Boston Crab.

The most important thing to Martel following his retirement from the ring, was his wife, Johanne of 25 years. The Martel’s currently travel the world and spend time at their home in Quebec City with their 7-year-old daughter.
