Rob Van Dam recently turned heel in Impact Wrestling and he’s coming out with guns blazing at AEW.
In case you missed it, RVD turned on his partner Rhyno during a match at Bound For Glory and followed up on his turn during last night’s Impact on AXS TV in a promo from inside of a jacuzzi. “Without RVD there would be no Kenny Omega, there would be no Daniel Bryan, without RVD there would be no Young Bucks,” he stated in the promo.
Van Dam doubled down on his heel antics towards AEW today while replying to a fan on Twitter. “Truthfully, I was a small 235 lb wrestler because the average guys were closer to 300 lbs and I was the only one creating and doing RVD moves,” the 48-year-old said. “Now the average wrestler is 190 lbs and they all do my sh*t. Elite= petite”
When a fan replied saying he should go to AEW, RVD fired back, “You should quit telling me what I should do. Especially suggesting a down grade like that.”
“People who think their opinions are facts are really ignorant,” he added. “According to my values- which are the only ones that matter to me-Impact is way better than whatever else you’re marking out on. Most of those All Petite cuts don’t even look like professional wrestlers.”
Van Dam also said he thinks the people in AEW all look like “regular 9-5’ers,” which is why be believes fans can relate to their roster.
