"So, probably about six months down the road, I went to Vince and I's like, 'Vince, is there anything we can do to change my name?' And I was scared to death to go in there and ask him; I thought, here I am six months in the company, I'm new, and this guy is asking Vince to change my name. I thought for sure, he's going to let me go. But that was the chance I had to take, so when I went into the office and said 'Hey Vince. I appreciate you've given me this opportunity here, and I'm really grateful to you for that, but can we change my name?' and he's like 'Fine. What do you want to change it to?' And now I'm like 'Oh, wow. Ok, this is pretty easy.' So, I said how about Bob Holly. He said 'Ok, that's fine. What we'll do, to make the transition, we'll call you Bob "Spark Plug' Holly.' And I said 'Hey, that's better than nothing. I'll take it.' So, we went from there and then, of course, eventually we got to drop the 'Spark Plug' and I was just Bob Holly after that. So, that's how all that came about."
His laundry list of injuries and if it's just part of being a wrestler: "Another day in the office. You know, to me, it was my job and the mindset I've always lived by is 'If I'm still walking, that's no reason why I can't finish what I have to do.' That's always been my mindset; I don't go on TV and cry over a black eye and a bloody lip and cry on national television and want to quit because I got a black eye or bloody lip or I got my arm broken or my neck broke or my back slashed. I never went on TV and cried 'I'm going to quit; it's just too rough for me', I've always had the old adage 'If I can walk, I'm going to finish what I have to do in this ring, no matter what'. No matter how bad it hurts, I've got a job to do. If I've got to get somebody over, I'm not going to cheat them out of getting their win or help getting them over because that was my job. That's my job: to help this guy look good and no matter what, that's what I'm going to do. If I can walk, I'm going to finish my match."
