Legendary Rob Van Dam has revealed something very interesting. The fact that one of the first television stories in which he was to be involved in WWE, it was a loving relationship with nothing more and nothing less than the boss’s daughter, with Stephanie McMahon.
This has been revealed by RVD, 50 years old, in a recent interview with The Dropkick Podcast, where he revealed the reasons why a TV story with Stephanie did not take place:
And my wicked ex was like the most insecure bitch on the planet, so I was just thinking like: ‘My God, this is going to cost me so much pain at home.’
We had a chat, Stephanie and I, and she said: ‘You know, think of this as if you were an actor. I was like, ‘that’s cool, except you call me Joe Blow because I’ve been Rob Van Dam for the last ten years”.
So things, the television story where RVD was going to have an affair with Stephanie never happened.
The aerial fighter also spoke about how the company wanted him to he will change his traditional wrestling outfit:
“I was resisting because I didn’t want to change. And you know, I had it all, but once they wanted me to ditch my airbrushed outfits.
WWE wanted to make me outfits made out of a material like Kurt Angle’s and you can see photos on the internet, it was something black and it had a red dragon, it was very basic“.
Added to this, RVD has also revealed that within WWE many told him that his package of wrestling movements was very similar to that of Eddie Guerrero, although he always rejected these comparisons.
The former TNA star first became famous during his 5-year stint with the original ECW from 1996 to 2001 before the company folded. He was part of the company’s final PPV Guilty as Charged in 2001.
RVD was signed to a short-term WWE deal several months after the folding of ECW. He went on to have a long run with the company after impressing the officials which lasted till 2007.
