WWE Hall Of Famer Rob Van Dam was interviewed on Chris Van Vliet’s podcast to talk about ECW, his RVDCBD company, his wife Katie Forbes, the Mount Rushmore of ECW wrestlers, the best advice he’s gotten from Paul Heyman, almost jumping from ECW to WCW, his relationship with Impact Wrestling and a lot more.
Here are a couple of highlights:
RVD on being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame:
“It’s something that I’m not used to wearing (the WWE Hall of Fame ring), so it gets in the way. When I hold doors open for people, I use my knuckles. I think it’s a germ thing. I’ve always done that. With that ring on there and you hit a glass door, it feels like I’m going to break it. I actually took it off when I was in my gym. That’s where it’s at right now. I realized a couple blocks after I left home, that ugh, I wanted to wear the ring for the podcast. Obviously, it’s a great honor. I don’t know what else will come of the relationship with myself and WWE. Even the merchandise that they make with me, I don’t know about it, almost ever, until it’s already out. It’s always been that way.”
RVD was asked if he feels he has any matches left in him:
“I definitely have matches in me. I don’t know if they’ll be in WWE or not. I think probably because, why not? At the same time, maybe there is a why not that I don’t know about. Who knows? I go with the flow.”
