RVD remains one of the most technically-gifted pro wrestlers to have ever competed inside the squared circle. The pro wrestling legend has competed in several promotions such as ECW, WCW, WWE, and IMPACT Wrestling during his career that has lasted over thirty years.

During the earlier years of his career, John Cena was involved in a huge match with ECW veteran Rob Van Damn at ECW One Night Stand 2006, which saw RVD beat Cena for the WWE Title.

The match was particularly infamous for the hostility shown towards Cena, with many fans cussing him out and there was even a huge banner hanging from the balcony that stated: ‘If Cena wins we riot.’ Fans also threw back the t-shirt Cena tried to give them, multiple times.

While speaking on the “Insiders Edge Podcast,” RVD talked about the t-shirt incident and how he absolutely loved seeing ECW fans disrespecting John Cena during the match.


“I was laughing. That was just a shoot f**king ‘this is hilarious’ kind of laugh. I didn’t expect that. That’s a hell of a souvenir to take home with you from a pay-per-view, John Cena’s shirt, so that’s pretty committed to throw it back at him. That’s perfect for the energy that was at The Hammerstein Ballroom.”

Rob Van Dam was also inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame last year and also gave Vince McMahon a bunch of rolling papers as gift, which Vince McMahon found very funny. RVD is happy where he is in life right now and that is all that matters.
