Bob Holly had pretty healthy career in WWE. The former WWE superstar worked in the company for 15 years. While his work was primarily in the main roster, in the year 2003 to 2004, he took to working with WWE OVW where he schooled a lot of up and coming talent.

Holly was accused of threatening to beat up one of the biggest wrestling managers of all time, Kenny Bolin. The manager was behind many talents from the OVW platform, and that was when the two crossed paths for the worse. Bolin spoke with Wrestling’s SP3, where he shed light on this matter.

Bob Holly was the worst. Bob Holly thought that I made $700 profit off a personal appearance he went to. I said, ‘How the f*** did I make $700? Your personal appearance drew 34 people.

Bolin revealed that the bone of content was a payment of $700. Holly did not think that the legendary manager was entitled to the payment. Bolin still stayed true to his metal despite threat of being beaten on television. The former manager added:


How do you think I made $700? And if I did, how do you think you’re entitled to it? Nobody f***ing came to see you.’ So he was gonna beat me up at television and [thought] I was gonna give him $700.

Holly was certainly capable of beating up Bolin, which the manager was aware of. However, what kept the manager steadfast was that a sign of any violence against him would get Holly thrown off the company. Holly holds the record of 0-2 in the OVW, where he lost against Matt Cappotelli and John Cena.
