Marc Mercier

Born in 1958, Marc Mercier followed his father Guy Mercier's footsteps into professional wrestling in 1977 in France and eventually fought his way up to heavyweight status at 6'0" and 244#.  He left the ring in 1989 due to injuries but maintained his connection with catch wrestling (including oversight of the Catch Academy in Wissous, France) until 2008, when he retired with over 30 years in wrestling.  These pictures capture his rookie years, when he was at his handsomest, scruffy, tattooed, eatable with a spoon.
