RVD made plenty of memories in the old ECW Arena, now known as the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia. He is coming back to his old stomping grounds for a very special event.

The recently christened WWE Hall of Famer will be taking part in a special appearance at the 2300 Arena on Sunday, May 16th. This will be the first pro wrestling event at the arena since the pandemic started.

They will also do a watch-along for the new WWE Icons episode featuring RVD. This will be a rare chance to have an evening with the Whole F’n Show.

During an interview with The Northeast Times, RVD opened up about the great memories he made in that historic building.


“I’ve got so many good memories from having so much fun back in the late ’90s there and it’s always cool to visit, feel that energy. The city has a certain energy. I feel it in the people, I look forward to going to Tony Luke’s and even though I wasn’t born here, it’s kind of a home because I walk around everyone knows me they think I lived there. A lot did of ECW wrestlers did, so they didn’t know I was flying in from the other coast, I appreciate that. It’s like an accepting feeling. NYC does it to me as well. In Philly, I’d be walking down the street, a garbage truck will go by and they’ll yell RVD!”

The Arena will host a signing with RVD and a live stage show as well. Tickets for the event are $65 and autographs are an additional $20. RVD is also planning to bring his own ECW World Television Title with him to the event for photo-ops.
