Dino Bravo in Lutte was so, so much better than Dino Bravo in WWF.  It's night and day.

There always was a debate about who was truly the star between Dino Bravo and Rick Martel in Lutte Internationale back then. Majority said it was Rick because he also was AWA World Champion around that time but people don't realize how over Dino was in Montreal. Their rivalry was quite legit, despite both being babyfaces at the time.

You've put together a truly superb roster for a late-80s/early-90s Canadian promotion, and I have 100 percent confidence that you are going to book it just right. I am really looking forward to this.

I can't decide which particular match-up of Bret Hart - Rick Martel - Ron Garvin I want most, but I want to see all those.

When Lutte Internationale/International Wrestling was raided in the mid-80's by Vince McMahon and the World Wrestling Federation, it meant the end of a golden age of professional wrestling in the province of Quebec. With its top stars gone for greener pastures in Stamford, despite securing a partnership with World Wrestling Council in Puerto Rico, Gino Brito found himself in the obligation to close the doors of Lutte Internationale. For many years, the province was starving and could only rely in local upstarts, looking to fill the void that Lutte Internationale had left. However, on a Monday morning, the former head booker of Lutte and member of Varoussac Promotions received a phone call suggesting an offer that he couldn't refuse; a chance to see Lutte rise from its ashes with all of their top stars. But who was at the other end of the line? You wouldn't actually believe it...and neither could Gino Brito!

 

TO BE CONTINUED.

"Hey baby, how are you doing?"

 

Gino couldn't believe it; Jimmy Hart was at the other end of the phone line.

 

Gino: "Jimmy, that's a surprise. What can I do for you?"

 

Jimmy: "Well, you probably heard that Vince is doing some shows in the Northeast with Jerry Jarrett."

 

Gino: "So, I heard. I'm sure you and your guys are gonna have a blast."

 

Jimmy: "Well, that's the thing, baby, I'm not booked."

 

Gino: "Wait, what? You're not booked. With all the things you did in Memphis with Jerry Lawler?"

 

Jimmy: "I know for some reasons, Vince chose some guys. And a lot of the other guys were left in the cold."

 

Gino: "Wow, sorry to hear that."

 

Jimmy: "Well, all the guys that Vince raided from you in the mid-80's; they're among them. They're not booked either."

 

Gino: "OK, but why are you telling me this?"

 

Jimmy: "Because, I think that with everything Dino, the Rougeaus and Rick told me, Vince robbed you of your living. Montreal was such a great territory with the best reputation you could ever have. I think you should have another shot, baby."

 

Gino: "Get to the point, Jimmy."

 

Jimmy: "Dino, Jacques, Raymond, Rick....everyone, they wanna stick it to McMahon. They wanna come back and blow the roof out of the Forum. They really wanna do this."

 

Gino: "Well, that's all good, Jimmy, but I'm gonna need more than 4 guys."

 

Jimmy: "Just give me a couple of days to convince you, baby. I'm gonna find some other guys and we're gonna get this thing going."

 

Gino: "OK but ----"

 

Jimmy Hart hung up before Gino could even complete his sentence. Gino had that weird feeling in his gut. He didn't know what it was. It certainly wasn't distrust because Jimmy Hart never had that reputation in the business, period. Maybe it was the chance to finish what his father Jack Britton had started decades ago. What the likes of Eddy Auger & Yvon Robert had done before him. Resurrecting pro wrestling in Montreal.

 

TO BE CONTINUED

I like how you seem to be playing off of what is happening in McMemphis here. Nicely done.
