• Former WWE Champion Has No Memory Of His Pinfall Victory Over Triple H
After working for Paul Heyman’s ECW from 1996 till it closed its doors in January 2001, Rob Van Dam joined the World Wrestling Federation a few months later and became a household name and even a main eventer, several years before winning the WWE Championship in 2006.
In the main event of the September 2, 2002 episode of WWE Monday Night RAW, RVD got a pinfall victory over then World Heavyweight Champion Triple H in a tag team match, that saw him teaming up with Ric Flair against The Game & Chris Jericho.

After WWE posted the finish of the match on Twitter, Mr. Monday Night tweeted the following:
“I got a win over Hunter? WTF? Where was I?”
After returning to IMPACT Wrestling for another run (2019-2020), he’s now a free-agent, but recently told NBC Sports that he’d actually be happy to return to WWE.
Here’s what RVD said:
“That would be awesome, yeah. You know what, I kinda feel like if they wanted me there, then I would be there. They would make it so that I would want to be there. Without having any, just being on the fence and not feeling hungry or either way, just whatever happens happens, like RVD is, I kinda feel like that.
I don’t know what they wanna do, what their plan is, what their agenda is for all their talent now. Seems like they want more normal-looking people that normal-looking people can relate to, maybe, but I really don’t even know. It’s whatever, but I’m around.”
