• Rob Van Dam Reveals What He Says To Vince McMahon Every Year
Former WWE Champion Rob Van Dam was no doubt one of the most entertaining wrestlers back in the day.
He achieved a lot during his time in ECW and in WWF/E, for which he is thankful to Vince McMahon.
During a recent session on Instagram Live, RVD revealed that he reaches out to McMahon a couple of times every year to express gratitude for the opportunities his former boss gave him.
He also said that McMahon replies him almost immediately to find out how he’s doing nowadays.
RVD also said that he does that so his former employer knows that he’s grateful to him for giving him several big opportunities during his prime.
It’s good that both of them have a close relationship.
