Rob Van Dam Talks About His Relationship w/Paul Heyman, A Possible “Final Run” in WWE

Rob Van Dam
In an interview with Grue Monkey, Rob Van Dam spoke about the possibility of having a final run in the WWE. Here are highlights:

On his time in ECW: “I went from being considered a good wrestler with potential, to being a superstar. That happened around ’98 and it was the ECW crowd that elevated me. Learning to wrestle in front the most opinionated crowd waiting for you to mess up so they could make fun of me, put the right amount of pressure on me.”

On his relationship with Paul Heyman: “The other agents and promoters seemed confused why the fans liked me so much because I was so non-typical for there idea of a wrestler, so they just tried to capitalize on it without owning it. Paul understood and knew how to bring more out of me.”

On a final run in WWE: “I have a merchandise deal with the WWE and right now, I’m too on the go. I have no reason to do a run right now. Honestly, it’s better not to … I don’t see that changing in the future. Physically, I feel great. I’ve always said, I’m unique in that way. People say wrestling wears you down, but no one thinks I just don’t want to. I can do the same as I did 20 years ago. Who knows, maybe someone threw it out there for reaction and the internet has had its fun with it.”
