RVD News: Says Now A Great Time To Tryout For WWE, Talks Evolution of Wrestling


Rob Van Dam gave a candid interview in promoting the upcoming WWE tour in Australia. Here are some highlights:

on now being a great time to get into WWE
I believe there’s never been a better time to go to one of these tryouts and try to break into the WWE that way, because almost everybody on the WWE roster right now seems to have come up through their farming ground NXT. They’re always adding and building the momentum of NXT.

on the influence of WWE
You have to listen to what WWE tells you what they want. They are the ones who set the standards for the entire industry and to argue against the grain could be detrimental towards your own future.

on the evolution of wrestling
All the big slow wrestlers wouldn’t even have a job today because the agenda of what the wrestlers do today is so much different. It’s a much faster pace and better matches. Someone like me, I’m very grateful to have my career span over all these steps of evolution.

on the contraction in wrestling
When I started out there were many different companies … you could leave and go to a different territory and there were so many different styles. What we have now is WWE has survived the test of time and all the other companies have fallen off the face of the earth … now the WWE is a hybrid of all the different kinds of wrestling. I kid you not, it really is the cream of the crop, the best in the business. If you’re not in the WWE and bouncing around in the Indy shows you’re not with the best.
