• “He deserved a better push” – Kurt Angle On Former WWE Champion In TNA

WWE Hall of Famer Rob Van Dam worked in TNA from 2010 to 2013 and then again in the now renamed IMPACT Wrestling from 2019 to 2020.

During his time over there, RVD won the TNA World Heavyweight Championship and the TNA X-Division Championship.

During an episode of The Kurt Angle Show, the Olympic Gold Medalist was asked if RVD didn’t care about being in TNA and was only there for the money.

Below is what Angle said:

“That’s Rob. ‘Hey Dude, I’m hanging here. I’m hanging out. I’m cool.’ He just wasn’t vocal. He wasn’t trying to be a leader. He wanted to go there and do his thing and perform. It’s not like he didn’t care about the company. That was Rob. That’s the way he was.

If you’re going to care about a company, if you’re Rob Van Dam, as long as you give everything you have in that ring every single night you go out there, that’s all you need from Rob because he’s not going to give you anything more.

He’s not going to tell people, ‘Hey, my passion is to make TNA the greatest company in the world.’ Rob is Rob Van Dam and what he’s going to do is he’s going to do it his way, his own thing, and his style at a very high level all the time.

[TNA] could have given him a better push. Definitely. I don’t know if they thought that he didn’t care because he had that I don’t care attitude. They might not have known Rob as well as I did, but Rob deserved a better push than he got.

No difference. He was the same both ways (in WWE & TNA).”
