• Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School Wrestling Legend “The Whole F’N Show” Rob Van Dam (Real name: Rob Szatkowski) turns 48 today.
He wrestled as Robbie V in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling from 1992 to 1993 but only became a major name when he joined Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling in early 1996 and adapted the nickname “Mr. Monday Night” while invading WWF RAW IS WAR for several weeks in 1997.
When ECW went bankrupt in 2001, he was one of the Wrestlers that found a new permanent home in the World Wrestling Federation, where he played a major role during the infamous WCW/ECW invasion storyline.
Over the years RVD won world titles in both, the WWE and TNA (Total Nonstop Action), but is currently wrestling on the independent scene.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROB VAN DAM!
