Robert Maillet was reared by his mother, a nurse, and his father, a football coach at the nearby high school, in the French-Canadian community of Ste-Marie-de-Kent, New Brunswick. When he started playing football for fun in elementary school, he developed an interest in athletics. After enrolling in a nearby high school, he took football more seriously and also started wrestling.

Robert graduated from high school in 1987, enrolled in college, and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1991 despite his desire to pursue a career as a professional wrestler.

Career

Robert made his WWF debut on November 11, 1991, when he defeated Bob Bradley in a dark match while competing under the ring name “The Cajun Giant.” He later went on to work for Super World of Sports as Giant Goliath.

Together with The Jackyl, a former wrestler who is currently a professional wrestling color commentator, he joined the professional wrestling stable The Truth Commission after signing his initial contract with the WWF in 1997.

Before heading to the WWF, where Robert became “The Interrogator” and gained notoriety for his signature technique, “The Iron Claw,” they initially engaged in combat in the US Wrestling Association (USWA). The Jackyl served as Robert’s manager as he started wrestling independently after The Truth Commission disbanded.

Before beginning to work for Canadian retired professional wrestler Jacques Rougeau Jr., Robert next joined the stable The Oddities. On July 8, 2005, Robert wrestled in his farewell match against Jim Duggan, following which he announced his retirement from the sport.
