If you’ve heard or Rob Terry before, then you would be familiar with his work from his time with IMPACT! Wrestling. Terry was not only apart of The British Invasion with Doug Williams and current NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Brutus Magnus (aka Nick Aldis).
Once the stable dissolved he later teamed then feuded with Robbie E. (currently Rob Stone in WWE NXT). Now, the Welsh grappler not only works as a firefighter but at the time of film Generation Iron: Natty 4 Life, was the defending Natural Olympia champion in the heavyweight division.
Terry, who stands 6’4″ and walks around at over 260 lbs is a life-long natural bodybuilder. Terry, who had a medical condition at the age of 8 years old would have died from any attempt at becoming an enhanced athlete, although you would never guess from looking at him. Big Rob, as he was known in Florida Championship Wrestling used to be offended by people calling him a, “fake natty,” but Terry has the physical scars to prove just why he couldn’t take anything that isn’t over the counter. In fact, not only does he participate in WADA urine testing, but also willfully submits to blood tests at his own expense.
Generation Iron: Natty 4 Life, follows the journey of natural competitors as Terry competes against Adrian Pietrariu and Philip Ricardo Jr. tries to repeat his previous year’s victory at the Natural Olympia. The documentary also features fan favorites Kai Greene and the, “controversial” figure, former American Gladiator, Mike O’Hearn. Over the years, people have accused O’Hearn of being a, “fake natty,” which he also addresses in the documentary.
We spoke with Terry about Generation Iron: Natty 4 Life, and could competitors be considered natural if they were ever enhanced at one point in time?
Generation Iron: Natty 4 Life, comes to DVD, Digital and VOD on Friday, July 31, 2020.
