The Brothers Baillargeon

Posted on Wednesday, September 10th, 2014 by John Wood
The Brothers Baillargeon are another entry in the long line of great strongmen from Quebec. From left to right: Charles, Paul, Adrian, Lionel, Jean, and Antonio. They traveled the continent performing tremendous strength feats and all eventually became famous professional wrestlers.

Note the family crest on their uniforms: It featured the number “6” (representing all six brothers) a beaver, their name and a maple leaf logo.
