Jacques Rougeau’s show may feature a number of big burly personalities, but there will be no punches or kicks. The performance targets young people with a message of non-violence, and some of the proceeds will go to the Sherbrooke sports and leisure foundation.

Former professional wrestler Jacques Rougeau describes his new family show as “a little bit Walt Disney and a little bit Cirque du Soleil.”
The event organizer and motivational speaker was on hand at Sherbrooke city hall on Wednesday morning for the announcement of a collaboration between Rougeau and the city on a performance of this show, which aims to promote non-violence to youth.
“Mr. Rougeau came to see me a few months ago to talk about a show that could seem contradictory, a wrestling show that is anti-violence […] which targets families and highlights acrobatics,” said mayor Bernard Sévigny.
The large spectacle will highlight the issue of violence among youth with the help of a number of performers, everyone from a man in a Spiderman costume to an actor over seven feet tall who was featured in the movie 300.
