RVD didn’t slow down after joining the WWE in 2001 following the closure of ECW that same year. He went on to win championships in both singles and team rankings, and nothing is more memorable than his defeat as WWE Champion. John Cena at the WWE-sponsored ECW reunion show, One Night Stand 2006.

Van Dam, who was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame last month as a member of the 2021 Class, stated on April 11 in WWE’s The Bump that he was “inspired” by his episode of WWE Icons.

“I’m really looking forward to meeting mine,” RVD said. “They went and interviewed family, friends, people who influenced me when I was very young in Battle Creek, Michigan, and I haven’t seen any of that yet.”

Van Dam follows in the footsteps of WWE Hall of Fame co-stars Yokozuna and Beth Phoenix, who were the heroes of the series’ first two episodes.

Don’t miss the show, which will be truly one of a kind, when WWE Icons: Rob Van Dam premieres on Sunday 16 May.
