Arguably the man who put Quebec on the map in terms of Professional Wrestling, Yvon Robert was a star in the business for three decades and is a former NWA World Heavyweight Champion.  Robert travelled across North America in his day and while he was based in Montreal, he would be known throughout the continent as a bona fide star.
