If the IWF would ever write a book or make a documentary of its history, this man would certainly have a chapter written
for him or a chapter filmed about his accomplishments in the IWF.
The IWF Hardcore Icon has done in it, being only one of 2 men in IWF history to be both IWF Heavyweight Champion and
IWF Tag Team Champion. But with success come great sacrifices.
R. Bruce Tharpe and Tyler were best friends, always having each other's back. But that all changed in December
of 2004 at IWF Vengeance when, in a chain match for the tag titles, Avalanche Tyler aligned himself with the South African
Assassin The Colonel. By the end of the night, The Colonel and Av Tyler were IWF tag team champions and RBT was out
of wrestling in the ring for a year.
