Superstar Recall: Rob Terry
Starting down in Florida Championship Wrestling the man later known as the "Freak" he would be the bodyguard of Nick Nemeth. Currently, Nick is still with the WWE under the name Dolph Ziggler this repackaging was one of his first steps back to the main roster after the Spirit Squad had ran it's course. Unfortunately for Big Rob his calling wasn't in the WWE as he would be released from the company in August 2008. According to Chris Jericho's autobiography he wanted Big Rob to be his protege in 2008 when he started his heel run, but when Rob got released the role went to Lance Cade.
In April 2009, Rob Terry would make his debut for TNA Wrestling joining Brutus Magnus and Douglas Williams to form the British Invasion trio. This would be Terry's big break playing the muscle for the faction sticking with them until the dissolution of the World Elite faction which happened soon after Terry defeated former stable leader Eric Young for the Global Championship. Even though most people may not remember the title it was winning this championship that started his push up the card. In reality by the end of the Immortal faction Big Rob's push was a flop and he had been replaced by fellow Immortal member Gunner.
Rob would keep a stable spot in TNA for a majority of their run on Spike and even though he was never really given another shot to move up the card he was still a stable and safe enough hand in the ring to stick around. In my opinion, even though Rob Terry never found his footing in the ring he did have a tremendous charisma to him that always kept bookers very optimistic about giving Rob an opportunity to reach the top of his profession. Either way though Rob could also be seen as a victim of the mismanagement of TNA Wrestling during his time within the company.
