Pierre Lafleur (born February 13, 1939) is a former French Canadian professional wrestler who is best known for his appearances with the World Wide Wrestling Federation under the ring name Lumberjack Pierre where he was the half of The Yukon Lumberjacks.[2]


Pierre Lafleur started wrestling in 1975 in the San Francisco territory of NWA as Soldier Lebeouf. He was not successful in San Francisco territory, so he left it after a short time. He wrestled with Nick Gulas and Jerry Jarrett in CWA Memphis as The Russian Stomper. He used the same gimmick in Jim Crockett's Mid-Atlantic territory.

World Wrestling Association (1975–1978)

He joined Dick the Bruiser's WWA in mid-1975 where he wrestled as Igor Volkoff.

His first fame rose when he started the gimmick Private Zarinoff Lebeouf as part of the tag team Legionnaires. He replaced Private Don Fargo and teamed with Sgt. Jacques Goulet. Fargo and Goulet had a fight. Due to this, Fargo left WWA and Zarinoff had to replace him as Goulet's partner.

World Wide Wrestling Federation (1978)

Zarinoff left for World Wide Wrestling Federation in 1978 as Lumberjack Pierre. He became one half of the tag team Yukon Lumberjacks with Yukon Eric.

World Tag Team Championship

On June 26, 1978, the Yukon Lumberjacks defeated Dino Bravo and Dominic DeNucci to win the WWWF Tag Team Championship which was the only title of Pierre and they held the titles briefly. On November 21, they lost the titles to Tony Garea and Larry Zbyszko. Zarinoff retired afterwards.

Lafleur came back to Québec for Varousac until a real shoot fight with Ray Rougeau and left the territory for Portland
