It’s now been revealed my multiple source that former NWA, AWA and WWF Superstar Rene Goulet, who briefly held the WWF World Tag Team titles with Karl Gotch in the 1970s, passed away earlier this year at the age of 86.
After he retired from in-ring action in 1987, he worked as a road agent/producer for the WWF until 1997. From Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, Rene Goulet got his start in professional wrestling in 1957, working the vibrant Quebec territory.
In 1963, he joined American Wrestling Association (AWA), a territory he worked off and on until 1983. He also spent a great deal of time working various NWA territories during the 1970s and 1980s, including Pacific Northwest Wrestling, Championship Wrestling From Florida, and Mid Atlantic.
From 1971-1972, he also worked for the then World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF). A dependable journeyman, he gave Ric Flair the first loss of his career, in Flair’s second match, in 1972.
Following his retirement from the ring after 30 years, Goulet took a position as a road agent with the WWF, where he worked until 1997. The details of his death have not be released.
The wrestling news plus staff sends out its condolences to Rene Goulet’s family, friends and peers.
