RVD's Interview with Between the Ropes

I'm writing this live as he the interview is going on. Here is what I'm hearing...

Rob Van Dam really sounds like he hated the WWE. Well, not the WWE, just all the travel. He says that once wrestling stops being fun, or just becomes business, it's really hard to keep going on the road to all the shows.

He also is saying that the writing staff didn't really listen to him. He said he wanted to be booked less because of burnout, but the writers continued to book him more and more. Some including his off weekends.

Rob says when the WWE brought back ECW he was excited. He loved it. He was excited to be back in his element. When he discovered the WWE didn't want to send ECW in the same direction he did, the last of his passion was squashed.

Rob's very unhappy that ECW isn't extreme.

He thought that bringing back ECW was bringing an alternative to the "same old crap". He referred to the original ECW as the Anti-McMahon.

RVD says that the respect WWE has for Paul Heyman was very little. He says that the upper management of WWE didn't act like ECW (original) had any fans.

He says the night he won the WWE title from Cena was a very special night. Not just because everyone hated Cena, but also because they loved him. He was also very surprised that the WWE let him win the WWE title because the WWE didn't make him. The WWE usually doesn't make big stars out of stars who became big in other promotions.

When he got arrested, he says he felt bad he let Vince down.

He believes everything happens for a reason.

He rambled on about legalizing marijuana, as usual. He says he just wants people to know the truth.

He says there was so much "not put into the ECW".

He called Kevin Thorn, "Kevin Vampire Dude".

RVD says his heart checked out of ECW when Bobby Lashley was made ECW's lead guy.

He says when wellness policy, a lot of his friends switched to pot. Now that the WWE is testing for pot, he thinks the WWE is going to push a lot of people to alcohol. He says that since the penalty for pot is just a fine, a lot of people will be choosing if the fine is worth it.

He doesn't watch wrestling. He does watch MMA.

He says that if he returns to wrestling he will consider going to TNA. Mostly because of a lighter schedule. He says that he would have to weigh a light schedule against other factors.

He sounds really happy. He's sound happy and healthy. He really deserves this time off.

The interview just got over.
