• “I don’t like Vince McMahon being gone” – Former WWE Champion
During a recent interview with NBC Sports Boston, former WWE Champion Rob Van Dam discussed the current situation of Vince McMahon’s retirement from all his positions in WWE due to the ongoing hush money scandal.
Here’s what The Whole F’N Show had to say:
“I don’t like Vince being gone, but if it’s better for business then that’s awesome.
I know that a lot of people don’t feel the way that I do about it, you know, but I feel, I feel more like, I probably lost, you know, one of my only people, I can imagine stopping by to wanna say hello to there.”
RVD wrestled for Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling from 1996 until the company closed its doors in early 2001. He joined the World Wrestling Federation a few months later and worked for the promotion (later renamed WWE) until June 2007.
The former ‘Mr. Monday Night’ then went to Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (TNA) from March 2010 to March 2013 and returned to WWE for another full-time run from June 2013 to August 2014.
He was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2021.
