After high school Rob competed in various Kentucky NPC competitions
and won a number of them including first place in the NPC
Kentucky Derby Classic Teen and first place in the Men’s
light heavyweight division in the Western Kentucky championships
at age 19. Rob was a stand out high school basketball player
at New Albany High and was accepted at Graceland University
in New Albany on a basketball scholarship were he studied
Business Administration. For a short time he worked selling
fitness equipment and also as a personal trainer.
When Rob was a freshman in college he happened to catch professional
wrestling on television and thought with his size –
that was something he could do easily.
After some investigating on various wrestling schools, Rob
decided to enroll in Nightmare Danny Davis' School of professional
wrestling. He started his training with The Nightmare Danny
Davis, a long-time wrestler who ran Ohio Valley Wrestling.
He wrestled with Nick Dinsmore for Music City Wrestling (MCW)
under the names Limited Edition and Lords of the Ring for
the Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) federation. Rob, along with
Dinsmore, went on to win the OVW tag team titles on 10 different
occasions and captured the MCW North American Tag Team titles
once. In April, 1999, Rob defeated Dinsmore to win the OVW
Heavyweight Championship title, thus beginning a long feud
with Dinsmore, but also a long on-and-off reign as the OVW
In 2000, Rob signed a developmental contract with the World
Wrestling Federation (now World Wrestling Entertainment –
WWE) and got his break in 2003 when he joined Sylvain Grenier
and Rene Dupree as part of La Resistance. Rob remained as
part of this tag team for 2 years and became a 3-time World
Tag Team Champion. He finally gained solo fame as “The
Con-Man” Rob Conway. He continued to wrestle for various
WWE shows including Raw, Smackdown, and Sunday Night Heat
A big draw on the independent wrestling circuit, Rob is currently
wrestling for the NWA as “THE IRONMAN” Rob Conway.
Standing at 6 feet and 215 pounds of solid muscle, Rob maintains
a strict regiment in the gym mixing weightlifting and cardio
workouts six days a week. In his spare time when Rob isn’t
playing Texas Hold’Em or basketball, he can be found
catching up on various sports by watching Sports Center. He
currently resides in New Albany, Indiana where he plans to
one day run for political office.
