Iron Week

In late 2012, at 40 years old, Bob decided that he would wrestle seven consecutive sixty-minute Iron Man matches, doing so over a seven-day span, referring to this week of events as Iron Week. Viewing it as a way to prove himself, prove he's not just a manager but a viable in ring performer, capable of working a full-time wrestling schedule with ROH (where he worked as a manager). Bob hand chose his opponents, and began November 25, 2012.

Bob would go on to wrestle over the course of Iron Week; Grizzly Redwood, Todd Sople, Julian Starr, Adam Cole, Biff Busick, Antonio Thomas, and Vinny Marseglia. Winning twice, losing twice, with three draws.
