Bob continued to play football, and eventually won the Morris Award for his great offensive performance.
From university he entered the 1997 NFL Draft, in which he was selected as the 67th overall pick by the Chicago Bears. However, he was traded to the Minnesota Vikings, but played in only one game before he got suspended for steroid abuse.
After that, Bob worked in a funeral home, but was dissatisfied with his paycheck, and decided to pursue a career in kick boxing and wrestling. He joined NWA Wildside in 2001, and was then brought into World Championship Wrestling under a development wrestler contract, however after the company was sold to World Wrestling Federation (WWF), Bob left and became a part of the New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW). Little by little, Bob`s career improved, and in 2004 he won the IWGP Heavyweight Championship by defeating Kensuke Sasaki, which increased his net worth by a large margin. Furthermore, Bob wrestled in the WWA, which is based in South Korea, and managed to win the Heavyweight Champion title, defeating Lee Wang Pyo, which also increased his net worth.
