History: (Last Updated: 5/18/06)


The Beginning
OVW: 1998 / 1999 / 2000-2001 / 2002-2003
WWE Raw: 2003 / 2004 / 2005 / 2006


The Beginning

Robert Conway Jr started out his wrestling career training with Danny Davis, a long-time wrestler/referee who ran Ohio Valley Wrestling. In 1997, Nick Dinsmore, who had held the OVW Southern Tag-Team Titles with Flash Flanagan, had split from Flanagan and was interested in finding a new tag-team partner. Rob Conway became the choice, as the two men started working together. In MCW, they became known as Limited Edition. But in OVW, they called themselves the Lords of the Ring.

OVW: 1998

In January '98, with the belts vacated, the OVW Southern Tag-Team Tournament was created to decide two worthy champions. It took place in March '98, with several teams hungry for the gold. Conway & Dinsmore worked together to make it to the semi-finals, where they took down Dinmore's old partner, Flanagan, along with Jason Lee. The duo then headed into the finals, where they overcame Rip Rogers & Trailor Park Trash to become the tag-team champs. In April '98, Conway & Dinsmore snatched up another vacated championship, winning a Four-Way Match over the Tennessee Volunteers, Shane Eden & Frenchy Riviera, & the Rock-n-Roll Express to gain the MCW North American Tag-Team Titles. However, Conway & Dinsmore didn't wrestle much with the MCW Titles, and they were vacated in May '98.

In OVW, though, the Lords of the Ring continued to go strong. They had a major feud with Rip Rogers & Dave the Rave, with the belts changing hands several times in the month of May, including twice on May 18th, as Rogers & Rave won the belts away, but lost them back to the Lords of the Ring later that night. The feud eventually caused the Tag-Team Titles to be vacated again at the end of May, leading to another OVW Southern Tag-Team Title Tournament being set up. Just like the one earlier in the year, though, the Lords of the Ring were too strong, defeating Rip Rogers & Dave the Rave in the semi-finals, then beating Flash Flanagan & Jason Lee to win the belts for a fourth time. Unfortunately, though, Dave the Rave & his new partner, Juan Hurtado, defeated the Lords of the Ring for the gold only 2 weeks later.

In September '98, the belts, for the third time that year, were vacated, due to injuries sustained by Bryan Cash, one of the tag-team champs. This set up another OVW Southern Tag-Team Title Tournament, the specialty of the Lords of the Ring. They didn't disappoint, taking down the Andretti Express, Rip Rogers & David C, and Jason Lee & Rod Steel to regain the OVW Southern Tag-Team Titles. The duo defended the belts for almost a month before losing to the Andretti Express, then spent a month trying to get the belts back, finally managing it near the end of November '98. The Lords of the Ring held the belts for the next few weeks, but the belts were vacated (again) on December 8th, and stayed vacated for the rest of the year.

OVW: 1999

In the beginning of January '99, the Lords of the Ring had a chance to get the vacated titles, in a match against David C & the Damaja. But when Dinsmore no-showed, Conway had to try to fight on his own, and eventually lost via countout. A few weeks later, though, the Lords of the Ring were able to get things back together, winning the belts back from their two foes. The feud wasn't over, however, as David C & the Damaja struck the next week in the rematch to take the belts away. It was around this point that Dinsmore wrestled more as a singles wrestler, as Conway gave it a shot himself. In April '99, Dinsmore won the OVW Heavyweight Title for the second time. Conway immediately appealed to his partner for a shot at the strap, and on April 28th, Conway got his wish and came through, winning away the OVW Heavyweight Championship.

The two former partners feuded at the top of the OVW for the next few months, with Dinsmore taking away the Heavyweight Title in May '99. Conway also stayed interested in the tag-team division, partnering some with Tim Horner. Conway & Horner worked together at the 2nd Annual Brian Pillman Memorial Show, getting a big victory over Flash Flanagan & Bull Pain. In August, Conway, back in the singles division, regained the OVW Heavyweight strap with a victory over his former tag-team foe, the Damaja. It was the start of a 3-month run at the top of the company for Conway, ending in November '99 when Rico Constantino won away the gold. Conway then faded away briefly from the main-event picture, as other wrestlers moved into the top spots.

OVW: 2000-2001

Conway fought in various matches in the new year, while spending many months without any gold. At the Rockin' Rumble in June '00, Conway got to team up with a WWF wrestler in D-Lo Brown. But the two men had to face the Damaja and his WWF wrestler, Kane, with Mick Foley the 'impartial' referee. Conway & Brown tried their best, but Kane & the Damaja proved to be too powerful, with the Damaja pinning Conway while Kane pinned Brown. While interested in wrestling other opponents, Conway always seemed to have his sights set towards his former partner, Nick Dinsmore. The two feuded some going into the fall of '00, and Conway got another big victory over Dinsmore in September, winning the OVW Heavyweight Title for the third time. After over a month of fighting in different matches, Dinsmore won the gold back from Conway near the end of October, and Conway started another stretch of no belts.

Conway formed a partnership of sorts with his old adversary, the Damaja, in the middle of '01, with the two men entering the OVW Southern Tag-Team Title Tournament together. The duo defeated Jerome Kronie & Mr. Black, but couldn't move past Rico Constantino & the Prototype (later known in WWE as John Cena), who went on to win the tournament. The chemistry just wasn't as strong between Conway & the Damaja, and the two later broke up. In late '01, Conway and Dinsmore, the two former partners and long-time adversaries, started to work out their differences, and eventually reformed the Lords of the Ring. They soon showed that they were one of the best tag-teams in the history of OVW, defeating Jason Lee & Derek King in December '01, giving the Lords of the Ring the OVW Southern Tag-Team Titles for the eighth time. The Lords of the Ring defended the belts for the rest of the year, continuing to be the most dominant tag-team in the company.

OVW: 2002-2003

For the first few months of the new year, the Lords of the Ring held the belts, while feuding with "The Machine" Doug Basham & the Damaja. In February '02, the two teams had it out in an "Iron Man" Match, with Basham & the Damaja winning out in the end, taking away the tag titles. The Lords of the Ring then wrestled briefly with USAW, where they feuded with Mark Jindrak & Sean O'Haire. The Lords of the Ring then quickly returned to OVW, where, in May '02, they took down Doug Basham & the Damaja at a WWE television taping to become 9-time OVW Southern Tag-Team Champs. The reign only lasted a few weeks, though, before the Lords of the Ring fell to Flash Flanagan & Trailor Park Trash.

The Lords of the Ring continued to feud with Flanagan & Trailor Park Trash going into the summer of '02. Only a few weeks after losing the belts, Conway & Dinsmore won over Flanagan & Trailor Park Trash in June to get the belts for an unprecedented tenth time. This reign, though, also only lasted two weeks, before the belts went back to Flanagan & Trailor Park Trash. The Lords of the Ring would feud with Flash & Trailor for the next few months, as well as battle the later tag-team champs, the Dogg Pound, but failed to regain the titles. It was during this time that Conway briefly made some appearance on WWE television, wrestling in Velocity matches, but rarely winning out.

Going into 2003, Conway & Dinsmore feuded with various individuals, including Rene Dupree, Lance (Garrison) Cade, and Chris Kanyon, among others. In March '03, the Lords of the Ring were scheduled to wrestle against Doug Basham & the Damaja. During the match, though, Conway surprisingly turned on Dinsmore, once again breaking up the famous tag-team. Conway and Dinsmore were engaged in several brawls as 2003 went on, wrestling each other into the summer months. In an odd twist, however, WWE had Conway & Dinsmore team up together under masks, competing as the Conquistadors. The duo were scheduled to team up in the APA Barroom Brawl Invitational at Vengeance '03, but Dinsmore was turned into Doink the Clown for the match, while Conway teamed up with Johnny Jeter as the masked Conquistadors. Bradshaw of the APA won the match.

In August '03, Conway had his last run at the top of Ohio Valley Wrestling, as he was able to defeat the Damaja in controversial fashion to win the OVW Heavyweight Championship for the fourth time. Conway's run at the head of the company, however, was the shortest reign in the history of the OVW Title, as he was beaten later on that night by Johnny Jeter. Only a few days later, Conway moved up permanently to the World Wrestling Entertainment roster, leaving his long-time home of OVW behind.

WWE Raw: 2003

During the summer months of '03, La Resistance (Rene Dupree & Sylvian Grenier), as the WWE Raw Tag-Team Champions, had been feuding with another powerful tag-team in the Dudley Boyz. On the August 18th Raw, La Resistance came out and bragged about what they had recently done to the Dudleys (they broke the US flag over Grenier's knee), then harrassed a uniformed serviceman at ringside. The Dudleyz came out to drive La Resistance away, then saluted the serviceman, only to have him attack both Dudleyz with the US flag he carried! La Resistance then came out and joined in the 3-on-2 assault, as Rob Conway officially joined their ranks as a heel.

At Summerslam '03, La Resistance and the Dudleyz fought it out for the tag-team titles. Just as it seemed that the Dudleyz had everything under control, having just hit the 3-D, a cameraman (Rob Conway again in disguise) entered the ring and knocked out D-Von Dudley with the heavy camera. This allowed La Resistance to come back and get the victory, retaining the titles. Once again, Conway proved himself to be a valuable member of the French team. Conway announced on the next Raw that he had joined La Resistance due to the way the President of the US had forced America into a war (against Iraq), and that he thought the French way was the best. Later that night, in a six-man title match pitting La Resistance against the Dudleyz (and Spike Dudley), Conway got the victory for his team by knocking out Bubba Ray Dudley with one of the tag belts. Conway got another big win for La Resistance the next week, as he not only beat Spike Dudley in a quick match, but also put Spike through a table with a powerbomb, putting Spike out of action.

The titles were put on the line in a "Handicap Tables" Match between La Resistance & Conway and the Dudley Boyz (it became a handicap match since Spike couldn't compete). Early on, the three French representatives used the numbers to their advantages, with quick tags to control a Dudley. The Dudley Boyz came back, with Bubba Ray telling D-Von to "Get The Tables", but La Resistance got the first shot, tossing D-Von into a table set up on the turnbuckle to get the first elimination (although D-Von could still participate in the match). Bubba Ray Dudley fought back, taking out Grenier with a suplex through a table. D-Von then later saved Bubba Ray from a table back-body drop by moving the table out of the way, and the two Dudleys worked together to toss Conway over the ropes and out to another table, eliminating Conway. Dupree tried to survive, landing a nice double clothesline at one point, but the Dudleys reversed an Irish Whip into the 3-D through a table to win the match and the Tag-Team Titles.

Conway continued to partner up with La Resistance throughout the rest of 2003, continuing the feud with the Dudley Boyz, among others. Conway also joined with Rene Dupree in a "Tag-Team Turmoil" Match at Armageddon '03 in December (as Sylvian Grenier was nursing injuries). Unfortunately, not only did Conway & Dupree have to start the match off, they faced a tough team in Rosey & the Hurricane, who won after a top-rope splash from the Hurricane got the pin. At the end of the match, Ric Flair & Batista got the victory over the Dudley Boyz, winning the Tag-Team Titles.

WWE Raw: 2004

Throughout the first few months of '04, Conway paired up with Rene Dupree as the membership of La Resistance, while Grenier continued to work through his injuries. At Wrestlemania XX, Conway & Dupree were part of the eight-man, Four-Way Raw Tag-Team Title Match. The match also included Rob Van Dam & Booker T(c), the Dudley Boyz, and Mark Jindrak & Garrison Cade. Dupree and RVD started out the match, with Van Dam controlling the momentum. Dupree managed to tag out to Bubba Ray Dudley, getting a fresh man in there (as well as a surprising tag). Later on, all three tag-teams isolated Booker T, keeping him away from any tags as they worked over one of the champs. But Booker T came back with a spinebuster on Conway, then got the tag to RVD, who stormed in and took on both La Resistance and Jindrak & Cade. In the end, the Dudleys had Booker T set up for the 3-D, but Cade made the save, taking out Bubba Ray. This, however, allowed Booker T to recover, and he took out Conway with the Axe Kick, followed by RVD's 5-Star Frog Splash, allowing Booker T & RVD to retain the tag-team titles.

On the next Raw, Sylvian Grenier rejoined La Resistance as an active wrestler, and the wrestlers celebrated, even bringing out a new mascot, Fifi (who got La Resistance 'ticketed' by "Sheriff" Steve Austin). However, soon after Wrestlemania XX, a draft lottery was set up between Raw and Smackdown, and Rene Dupree turned out to be one of the wrestlers sent to Smackdown. This made Conway & Grenier the only formation of La Resistance on Raw. The team worked well, together, though, and got a match at Backlash '04, facing off against Rosey & the Hurricane. During the match, Eugene, who was a 'special' wrestler, came down to the ring and distracted La Resistance by playing with their flags, among other things. While William Regal came down to get Eugene away from ringside, the Hurricane got the pinfall, getting a big win over La Resistance.

Conway had some more problems with Eugene in the following weeks, including having Eugene set off some pyro accidentally during one of Conway's matches, distracting Conway and allowing Rhyno to take him out for the win. A furious Conway later demanded a match with Eugene, and got his wish. Conway had a tune-up match first against the Hurricane, easily winning the match and promising the same for Eugene the next week. Conway also had some help going in, as Bischoff told William Regal that if Eugene lost, Regal might be put back on the active roster. Eugene was dominating at one point in the match, when Regal tripped him from the outside, allowing Conway to come back. But Eugene still won out with a roll-up, defeating Conway.

At the end of May '04, La Resistance was given a Raw Tag-Team Title shot against the champions, Chris Benoit & Edge. The show was held in Montreal, giving La Resistance almost a 'home-field advantage' from the fans. The odds seemed to be against La Resistance, as Benoit & Edge were both dominating wrestlers. At one point, Benoit got the Crippler Crossface on Conway, nearly winning the match before Grenier could make the save. In the end, though, La Resistance took advantage of some problems between the tag-team champs, especially after Edge accidentally Speared Benoit. This gave La Resistance the chance to double-team Edge, and they took him out with the Bonsoir, winning the match and getting the tag-team titles around their waist (Conway's first gold in WWE).

La Resistance and Benoit & Edge continued to have problems going into the summer of '04. On the Raw before Bad Blood '04, Benoit was placed by GM Eric Bischoff in a "Handicap" Match against La Resistance. As La Resistance was winning with a double-team assault, Edge came to the ring and attacked, ruining the "Handicap" Match. Bischoff, though, came out to the ring. He said that Edge & Benoit would get a tag-team title shot at La Resistance at the pay-per-view, as well as Benoit defending his Raw Heavyweight Title against Kane. Bischoff also said, though, that the Handicap Match would take place, with Kane joining La Resistance. Although Edge & Benoit fought hard, there was no stopping Kane, who chokeslammed Benoit for the victory.

At Bad Blood '04, the two tag-teams again squared off, with the Raw Tag-Team Championship on the line. Edge had the early advantage on Grenier, until Conway interfered, slamming Edge into the steel guardrail at ringside. The two French representatives double-teamed Edge for a while, until Edge finally made the hot tag to Benoit. In the end, Benoit and Edge avoided a near collision between the two, then took the fight to La Resistance. Benoit locked Grenier in the Crippler Crossface, while Edge dumped Conway out of the ring. The titles looked as good as gone, but at the last minute, Kane suddenly charged out to the ring and attacked Benoit, causing the disqualification loss, but also keeping the belts around the waist of La Resistance.

La Resistance stayed the tag-team champions going into July '04, where they fought a patriotic team in Sgt. Slaughter & Rhyno after insulting Independence Day. However, La Resistance got the last laugh, winning the match by beating Slaughter. At Vengeance '04, things again looked bad for La Resistance, as they were booked to defend their titles against Ric Flair & Eugene, who had begun hanging out with Evolution (Flair's stable). It was an interesting match, as Eugene acted just like Flair, doing his moves, causing Flair to come in and show how it's really done. Flair almost won the match with the Figure Four on Grenier, with Conway breaking up the submission hold. La Resistance then came back, getting in some good shots on Flair. When Flair was almost over to make the tag to Eugene, Conway broke it up by pulling Eugene off the apron. This caused Eugene to lose control, though, as he charged in and shoved the ref out of the way, then attacking both members of La Resistance. This caused the disqualification, getting La Resistance out of another match with the belts still around their waists.

Conway & Grenier next feuded with Rhyno and his new tag-team partner, Tajiri. The two former ECW wrestlers proved to be quite a handful for La Resistance over the next few weeks, as they had a series of both singles and tag matches. La Resistance even lost a non-title match to Rhyno & Tajiri, signaling bad times ahead. In the week before the August PPV, Summerslam, a match was set up pitting Rhyno & Tajiri against two unknown wrestlers. Rhyno & Tajiri had to win the match within 3 minutes to get a tag-team title shot. With little time left, Rhyno & Tajiri were in complete control. But La Resistance distracted the referee, keeping him away as the time ran out. The match went to a No-Contest, apparently keeping Rhyno & Tajiri from getting a shot. La Resistance then did not have to defend the belts at Summerslam '04, getting the night off.

On the Raw after the PPV, Grenier fought Rhyno in a singles match, with the stipulation that, if Rhyno won, his team would get a title shot, but if he lost, his team would never be granted a chance. Thanks in part to Tajiri's Green Mist, Rhyno won, forcing La Resistance to give them the #1 Contenders spot. A week later, La Resistance joined with Jonathan Coachman to attack Tajiri & the Rock (who had returned to talk to the Diva contestants). But when Rhyno made the save, La Resistance took off, leaving the Coach in the ring to feel the People's Elbow from the Rock. The trio got revenge the next week, though, as La Resistance & the Coach won a "Handicap" Match over Rhyno & Tajiri. The week before the PPV, La Resistance, Ric Flair, & Batista fought against Rhyno, Tajiri, Chris Benoit, & William Regal in an eight-man tag. After a wild match, Conway was made to submit to Benoit's Sharpshooter.

At Unforgiven '04, La Resistance finally had to give a Raw World Tag-Team Title shot to Rhyno & Tajiri. After Grenier tried to sing Oh, Canada (their normal beginning), the match began in earnest, with Tajiri taking control of Grenier. The faces dominated for a time, but when Rhyno missed a Gore on Conway and injured his shoulder, Conway was quick to capitalize, controlling the match until Rhyno managed to escape and make the tag to Tajiri, who immediately regained the momentum for his team with a series of kicks. Near the end of the match, after Grenier had been badly racked by the Canadian flag pole, Rhyno got the Gore and made the cover. But Conway, from the outside, put Grenier's foot on the ropes, keeping the match going. Conway then brawled with Tajiri on the outside, distracting the referee, while Grenier recovered enough to knock Rhyno out with the flag pole, getting the 3-count to retain the tag-team titles.

After the PPV, La Resistance had a brief feud with Rosey & the Hurricane, after the duo won a Contenders match. La Resistance defended the titles against them on Raw, easily getting the win with their Au Revoir finisher. Around the end of September, a new type of PPV was announced, where the fans would choose the competitors. It was called Taboo Tuesday. In the main event, 3 wrestlers were available to be voted on to face Triple H for the Raw World Title. Shawn Michaels earned the title shot, leaving Chris Benoit & Edge to compete in the secondary match: a World Tag-Team Title shot against La Resistance. Conway & Grenier complained bitterly about having to wrestle without any preparation for the wrestlers they would face, but still had to go through with it. Benoit & Edge had a lot of problems working as a team, as Edge was distracted and angry with the fans for not choosing him. In fact, Edge left the ring before the match was over, storming to the back and leaving the arena. Despite this, however, Benoit was able to come back, blocking the Au Revoir, knocking Grenier off the apron, then putting Conway in the Crippler Crossface. Conway had no choice but to tap, giving the Tag-Team Titles to Benoit and a very disgruntled Edge.

After taking a week off, La Resistance was granted their title rematch in the beginning of November '04. Once again, things were bad between Benoit & Edge, with Edge refusing to tag in. This gave La Resistance the advantage, and they worked not to waste it, double-teamming Benoit at every opportunity. In the end, just as it seemed Benoit was once again making a comeback, Edge distracted the referee, keeping Benoit from making the pin. La Resistance then recovered to take out Benoit and make the cover, once again gaining the Raw World Tag-Team Titles. After the match, Edge 'borrowed' one of the belts to clock Benoit in the head, then returned it to Conway & Grenier. Unfortunately, even as the champs, La Resistance didn't have much to do with one of the biggest PPVs of the year, the '04 Survivor Series. They wrestled on Sunday Night Heat, winning a Non-Title Match over Rosey & the Hurricane.

Due to stipulations regarding the Raw Elimination Match, the fan-favorites team got to take turns being the General Manager for a month. The first one up was Maven, who quickly arranged for La Resistance to defend the Raw Tag Titles in a "Triple Threat Elimination" Match against William Regal & Eugene and Rhyno & Tajiri. Conway & Grenier managed to work together to eliminate Rhyno & Tajiri first, mostly by Conway holding Rhyno's legs from outside the ring, while Grenier made the pin. But Regal & Eugene were too much for them, as Regal dodged a flag shot, causing Grenier to knock out Conway. Eugene was then tagged in and dropped the People's Elbow on Conway for the victory, stripping away the Raw Tag-Team Titles from La Resistance only a few weeks after they had regained them. It didn't get any better the next week, as La Resistance & Christian lost a six-man tag match to Regal, Eugene, & Shelton Benjamin.

On the next Raw, with Randy Orton as the GM, a 20-man #1 Contenders match was held, with the winner getting a shot at Hunter Hearst Helmsley. Grenier and Conway both participated in the match, with Grenier being eliminated by Maven, while Conway was thrown out by Gene Snitsky. Chris Benoit and Edge won the battle royal, as both were eliminated at the same time. Later that night, La Resistance was granted another shot at the Tag-Team Titles, taking on Regal & Eugene. La Resistance seemed to have it in hand near the end, as they set up Eugene for the Au Revoir. But Regal tripped them up from the outside, allowing Eugene to get a Stone Cold Stunner and win the match, keeping the belts away from La Resistance. The team then took some time off, disappearing from Raw for the last few weeks of '04.

WWE Raw: 2005

On the first Raw of the year, Conway tried to help Grenier defeat the Intercontinental Champion, Shelton Benjamin, in a non-title match. But Benjamin used miscues by both men against them in the match. At one point, while Conway was distracting Benjamin, Grenier got a dropkick in from behind. But this sent Benjamin into Conway, knocking him down. When Grenier tried to apologize, Benjamin came back and attacked, taking out Conway, then beating Grenier with the T-Bone Suplex for the victory. The next weekend, neither Conway nor Grenier made an impact on the New Years Revolution pay-per-view. But it was still an important night for the team, as, during the tag-team title defense, Eugene badly injured his knee, putting him on the shelf. It was later arranged at a Canadian WWE house show that William Regal, with Jonathan Coachman as his partner, would have to defend the tag-team titles against La Resistance. Coachman didn't help at all, leaving Regal in a double-team situation that he couldn't win. Thus, at a house show, Conway & Grenier gained the Raw Tag Titles for the third time.

The team celebrated on the next Raw, showing off their tag-team titles, and joined with Maven in a match against Shelton Benjamin, the Hurricane, & Rosey. While Benjamin was distracted by Maven and the Hurricane was down, La Resistance got in the double-team and amazingly got the Au Revoir finisher on the huge Rosey, winning the match. A week later, La Resistance went to Eric Bischoff to ask for both of them to be entered into the '05 Royal Rumble match. They were interrupted by Batista, who told Bischoff he accepted the offer of a qualifying match. La Resistance were quick to say that a Handicap Match between them and Batista should be arranged, with the winner getting into the Rumble. While Bischoff was skeptical, Batista was not, accepting the match. Conway then threatened to shove their flag down Batista's throat. Batista threatened to put it somewhere else. In the match, despite the double-team, La Resistance couldn't put Batista away. Eventually, Batista slammed one on top of the other, then made the cover, making it into the Rumble. Batista then fulfilled his promise, grabbing the flag and sticking it between Conway's legs.

Things got worse for La Resistance in the near future. Not only did they not appear at the Rumble, they were forced to defend their Tag Titles against William Regal & Tajiri in Tajiri's home country of Japan (the first ever Raw broadcast from there). The home turf advantage was too much for La Resistance, as Tajiri & Regal took away the belts. La Resistance quickly demanded their rematch, and got it on the next Raw. Once again, though, Tajiri & Regal proved to be the stronger team, keeping La Resistance from reclaiming the gold. La Resistance appeared again on Heat the next week, protesting to the Coach about their lost titles, and how they shouldn't have had to defend them in Japan. When Regal & Tajiri answered, a Six-Man Tag was set up, with La Resistance & the Coach losing to Regal, Tajiri, & Rhyno.

For the next few weeks, La Resistance kept appearing on Heat, fighting with either Regal & Tajiri or Rhyno. They finally made their return to Raw in the middle of March '05, but unfortunately for them, it was against the reformation of the Rockers (Shawn Michaels & Marty Jannetty), with Jannetty getting his Rocker Dropper for the victory. Conway fought Michaels in a singles match the next week, with Grenier in his corner, trying to help him out. But Michaels took out Conway with some Sweet Chin Music, sending La Resistance down to defeat yet again. Despite this, La Resistance got another crack at the Raw Tag Titles on the Raw before Wrestlemania, thanks to GM Eric Bischoff, who set up the match since the belts weren't being defended at the PPV. La Resistance took on the champs, Regal & Tajiri, and Simon Dean & Maven in a "Three-Way" Match. Once again, though, things didn't work out for Conway & Grenier, as Regal & Tajiri pulled out the win.

Going into April '05, La Resistance became more and more regulated to Heat, although they challenged Regal & Tajiri repeatedly for the belts. The duo returned to Raw near the end of the month, with Grenier taking on Chris Jericho, while Conway watched from the outside. Predictably, Grenier tapped out to the Walls of Jericho, but Conway helped Grenier after the match, attacking Jericho, with Shelton Benjamin coming down to make the save. At Backlash '05, La Resistance joined in the Tag-Team Turmoil Match, getting yet another shot at the Raw Tag Titles. The duo got a good draw in the match, coming in as the 4th team, and used this to take down the tired team of Regal & Tajiri, eliminating the champs! However, the final team, Rosey & the Hurricane (aka the Superheroes), proved to be too strong for La Resistance, with the Hurricane getting a splash off of Rosey's shoulders on Conway for the pin. Twenty-four hours later on Raw, La Resistance got a rematch against the Superheroes, with it ending much the same way for Conway & Grenier.

A week later on Raw, Conway & Grenier came into Bischoff's office to ask for another title shot. During the conversation, though, things got heated between the two teammates, with each basically blaming the other for their recent misfortunes. Bischoff quickly placed each man in a singles match that night, with them having the chance to prove who the better man was. It didn't work out for either man, though, as Grenier fell to the massive Viscera, while Conway was beaten by Shelton Benjamin's springboard bulldog. Conway and Grenier continued to go their separate ways after this match, with Conway getting several singles wins on Heat. At the end of May '05, the animosity between the two former teammates came to a head during a "Three-Way" Match against the IC Champion, Benjamin. La Resistance couldn't work together, turning the bout into a true Triple Threat, enabling Benjamin to get the victory in the end to stay the champ.

The two former partners wrestled each other on Heat at the beginning of June '05, with Conway getting the victory. Conway next appeared with the Raw heels at ECW One Night Stand, even getting involved at the brawl near the end, when the Raw & Smackdown anti-ECW contingents were sent from the ring. Conway then returned to Heat, as he was slowly repackaged going into July '05. Conway did get some wins on Heat, over wrestlers like Val Venis and Rosey, gaining some momentum for his return to the big time.

On the first Raw of August '05, Conway reappeared on Raw, dressed up as "The Conman" Rob Conway, an egotistical wrestler. He defeated Val Venis, getting his first win on Raw in some time. Conway talked about his new-found image to Maria the next week, talking about being 98% fat-free. This caught the attention of Viscera, who challenged Conway to a match. Surprisingly, though, Conway's winning ways continued, as he used a Viscera knee injury to win over the 500-lb wrestler. Conway's push continued a week later, as he fought with Stacey Keibler over a mirror, with Conway believing that Stacy was just doing it to hit on him. This led to Keibler's ally, the Hurricane, standing up for her. Conway and the Hurricane faced off later in the night, with Conway again getting the victory. Conway followed this up soon afterwards by beating a distracted and injured Matt Hardy, one of his biggest wins in WWE.

Conway appeared on Heat the next week, defeating Matt Striker to continue his winning streak. He returned to Raw at the beginning of September '05, defeating Shelton Benjamin (after some help from Kerwin White, who tripped up Benjamin with a golf club). Despite all the wins, though, long-term plans were not forthcoming for Conway, who only wrestled a Dark Match for Unforgiven '05, beating Tajiri. Things finally started to heat up for Conway as he went into the new month, after he defeated Eugene by distracting him, ripping the head off of one of Eugene's dolls. This led to WWE Homecoming, which celebrated Raw's return to the USA Network. During the show, they had a Legends ceremony in the ring, honoring many of the wrestlers who had appeared on WWE television (and a few that hadn't). Conway opted to interrupt the ceremony, talking about the "has-beens" in the ring. This didn't turn out to be a good plan, as Conway was beaten down by the legends, taking several moves, including the Iron Claw from Kevin von Erich and the Superfly Splash from Jimmy Snuka.

A furious Conway challenged any legend to a match the next week on Raw, saying that he was a "Future Legend" in the business. Doink the Clown answered the challenge, using his usual hijinxs to throw Conway off. But Conway was too angry, managing to get the victory. After the match, Conway continued the assault on Doink, with Eugene, a lover of legends, coming down to make the save. However, when the mentally-retarded wrestler turned to check on Doink, Conway reentered the ring and beat Eugene down as well, taking him out. Conway continued his assault on legends the next few weeks on Heat, beating guys like Greg "The Hammer" Valentine (who turned on Eugene after he made the save) and Koko B. Ware. It was around this time that WWE was planning a PPV where the fans voted on the matches. A bout was set up, teaming Conway & Tyson Tomko against Eugene and a voted-in legend: either "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka, or Kamala. During one Raw match, Conway attacked Eugene with a steel chair, causing the DQ, which led to all 3 legends running out and attacking Conway.

At Taboo Tuesday '05, Conway & Tomko learned that "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka had been voted in as Eugene's partner. Conway & Tomko did a lot of work on Eugene throughout the match, keeping him isolated from his partner. Late in the bout, though, Eugene managed to make the hot tag, with the legendary Snuka taking out Conway. When Tomko tried to interfere, Eugene took him out, then Rock Bottomed Conway, allowing Snuka to hit the Superfly Splash on him for the pinfall, a rough loss for the Conman. Conway's woes continued the next night, when he was forced to tap out to the Intercontinental Champion, "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair. Conway wrestled a few more times on Raw as the year wound to a close, but his momentum was definitely gone, as Conway appeared only on Heat in December '05, losing repeatedly to wrestlers like Val Venis, Viscera, and Chavo Guerrero.

WWE Raw: 2006

Conway's luck didn't turn around going into the new year. On Raw, he lost a "Royal Rumble Qualifying" Match to Chavo Guerrero, keeping him out of the 30-man event. Conway got a 2nd Chance to get into the Rumble a few weeks later, along with Gregory Helms and Lance Cade. All they had to do was toss out the 500-lb Big Show to earn a slot. None of them could manage it, as the Big Show easily eliminated all three. Thus, Conway had to sit at home during the '06 Royal Rumble, rather than getting a chance to win a main event slot at Wrestlemania. Since then, Conway has appeared occassionally on Heat, losing to wrestlers like Eugene and Goldust, among others, while staying away from Raw. He reappeared on in the middle of April '06 on Raw, but in a losing cause, falling to "Mr. Money In The Bank" Rob Van Dam. To add insult to injury, Conway was punked out by an angry Triple H before the match, before later falling to RVD's Five Star Frog Splash.

Conway wanted some respect on the next Raw, as he seemed to have become a laughing stock. He didn't get it, though, as his speech was interrupted by the fires of Kane! The Big Red Machine, already in a bad mood, quickly took out some rage on Conway, Chokeslamming him and winning the match. Conway's next major appearance was right before Backlash '06, competing in the "Sunday Night Heat" Match before the PPV. Unfortunately, even this didn't stop Conway's recent losing skid, as he fell to a Goldust powerslam, getting pinned. Conway was then put in a match on the next Raw against Kane, but this time, he seemed to have an edge, as the guest co-GM's, the Spirit Squad, had made Shawn Michaels the referee for the match. Michaels also had to wear a shirt with "May 19th" written on it, a date that Kane was freaking out about at the time (his movie release date). But Michaels, while 'checking' Conway for foreign objects, low blow'ed him, then put the shirt on him instead! Conway couldn't get the shirt off before Kane got there, as the Big Red Machine, incensed, destroyed him. Michaels added to the abuse by using a mic to say the date, then throw the mic on Conway's downed body, saying that it was him! Kane came back and Tombstoned Conway, then pinned him, with Michaels making a cautious 3 count to put Conway out of his misery.

Conway returned to Heat the following week, wrestling against a former legend in "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan. Although Conway got in some good moves, he fell to the Hacksaw's Four-Point Stance Football Tackle, taking another rough loss.
