Rob Van Dam names two people he would want to induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame. His last appearance in the WWE was on the TV Special RAW Reunion in 2019.
Rob Van Dam, commonly known as RVD, was a WWE mainstay in the 2000’s. He has been part of several successful promotions and has main evented bucket loads of pay per views in his three decade long successful wrestling career.
He was the 2nd ever winner of the Money in the bank contract and cashed in on John Cena to win his first and only WWE Championship. RVD was also awarded the ECW Championship making him a double World Champion and the first to win both titles as well as being the only one to hold them at the same time.
He has held several other titles in the WWE and is their 7th ever Grand Slam Champion. With all these accolades under his belt, he is bound to enter the WWE Hall of Fame one day. But who does RVD want to induct him in the Hall of Fame?

Despite having a long standing friendship and working relationship with Sabu, RVD doesn’t want him to be the one who inducts him. While speaking on the ‘That 90s Wrestling Podcast‘, he revealed that his first choice was none other than Paul Heyman.
“It kinda has to be Paul, doesn’t it? I think it has to be Paul. Sabu doesn’t talk very good and on the real Paul is the only real producer-slash-agent that’s ever really had my best interests at heart and understood me and because of that I think it would have to be him, as predictable as that is.”
RVD had an interesting second choice naming WWE Chairman Vince McMahon. He admitted that the two did not have a good relationship but blamed himself for that.
“You know who’d be a second choice though? Vince McMahon. Vince. . . . [I did not have a good relationship with Vince] when I was there cause I had my head up my a**, you know. I really like the lot. The older I am, the more Zen I am . . . I was intimidated talking to Vince, still am. I don’t have a really good warm relationship like some of the boys do where they can hang out and talk to him. After leaving and wising up he’s become a lot more important to me. He’s the most important person I know.”
RVD was last seen in a wrestling ring last year. He was contracted with Impact Wrestling and stayed with them until September 2020. Despite being a part of Impact’s roster he made a special appearance in the WWE on the Raw Reunion episode of Monday Night Raw on July 22, 2019.
