About Rick Martel

A star performer of the early Royal Rumble years, “The Model” Rick Martel was at one time the best “Iron Man” competitor in the match, and the first person to enter the match in the first 5 to be there at the end. A native of Quebec City, “The Model” has kept himself outside of the business since his retirement in the late 90’s due to injury.
