During an episode of his ‘One of a Kind’ podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Rob Van Dam claimed that ‘The Game’ Triple H had a personal vendetta against him back in the day.

Both Legends were on the same roster for most of Van Dam’s WWF/WWE career.

Here’s what RVD had to say about Triple H:

“I felt some resentment, because I was told that he was anti-RVD in the business meetings with the agents and everything. So I took that personally.

And then also, I felt that there was some heat there building up and this was about the peak of it.

I felt that he was — I don’t want to say pretentious — but I felt like he would treat me in a way that was tongue-in-cheek disrespectful where he thought it was going over my head, but it wasn’t.

I had a build-up of that and stuff, so that’s how I remember that coming together right there at the Staples Center.

So if I’m asked ‘Do you feel like he held me back or kept me down’, I guess that’s evidence right there, if that’s how the jury was waivered.

But also, he had a right to have his opinion and his judgment, and he sat in that position in the office.

I didn’t use to be able to give him credit for that, and now I do. Look what he’s done, now he’s running everything.

Obviously, you can’t say ‘He didn’t know what he was doing or talking about’.

But I do feel like if it was that side of him, or if it was somebody else maybe that was pro-RVD, then I think a lot of things probably would’ve been different.”

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.

Mr. Monday Night stayed with WWE until 2007, then wrestled for Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (TNA) from 2010 to 2013 and returned to WWE for a 2nd run (2013-2014) with the company.

He returned to IMPACT Wrestling (fka TNA) for another run (2019-2020) and is now a free-agent, but recently told NBC Sports that he’d actually be happy to return to WWE.
