• Rob Van Dam Tells Steve Austin How Many Concussions He Suffered In His Career
During a recent appearance on Steve Austin Show podcast, former WWE Champion and current Impact Wrestling Superstar Rob Van Dam talked about his history with concussions.
Below is what RVD told Austin:
“I’ve had hundreds, seriously, hundreds, of concussions.
Balls Mahoney would hit me with a chair. Then ‘crack’ it would be like everything’s in slow motion. Sometimes the sound ‘goes out,’ sometimes you know everything’s spinning.
I had double vision, but I just couldn’t shake it off and I kept thinking well. You know, it’ll be gone tomorrow, so I’m not gonna let anybody know.
The show must go on.”
