Rob Van Dam says he was never comfortable in WWE
“For some reason, I was never really comfortable in WWE. People are like, every time someone gets fired now, which I mean is pretty crazy now how often they’ve been doing that, but the world is always shocked, like, ‘Oh my God.’
Even when I was champion, I never felt untouchable. They humbled me so much. They would give you plans, ‘We’re going to do this’ and psyche. After so much of that, it humbled me to where I’m like,‘Oh, I’m not fired. That’s cool.’”
RVD had a thirty year career where he wrestled in promotions such as ECW, WCW, WWE, and IMPACT Wrestling. His career highlight was winning the WWE Championship after beating John Cena and then being awarded the reactivated ECW World Heavyweight Championship; making him the the only man to hold both titles at the same time.
