RVD Says A Lot Of The AEW Stars Went Out Of Their Way To Make Him Feel Appreciated And Welcomed

RVD (Rob Van Dam) recently talked about a wide range of topics on his 1 Of a Kind podcast.


During it, the WWE Hall of Famer discussed the warm welcome to AEW from the locker room. 

RVD was most recently in action by teaming with FTR against Samoa Joe, Swerve Strickland and Hangman Adam Page on AEW Dynamite last week. 

“It was good. All those guys are good. It was a little bit chaotic. Yea, I was in the ring with Joe, but it might have been a couple moves here and there where it could have been a save or whatever. There was just so much going on. It’s not the same as actually being in there and wrestling around with somebody in the ring a little bit, although that does happen and it’s part of the match. People pair off and do that stuff. I don’t know. I guess I feel like I was in there for a long time actually in that match. I was in there and people were taking turns whipping on me and stuff for a while. I know that, but it was cool. Everyone’s good.”

“A lot of the guys really went out of their way to make me feel appreciated and welcomed. They were like, ‘Hey, some of us might be a little apprehensive about coming up and telling you this, but we’re all so excited that you’re here and so stoked. Man, it’s so cool.’ There were a few particular guys who said that and I’ll always remember that because that stands out. It definitely puts me in a different perspective than in WWE where I felt replaceable and expendable. I might be there next week, I might not. I never knew. I never knew if I was really being appreciated there or not because there was so much balance of different energies conflicting.”
