RVD is definitely one of the most technically-gifted pro wrestlers to have ever competed in the pro wrestling world. The icon finally made his debut on AEW Dynamite this week and it appears RVD opened up about coming out to his classic ECW entrance theme song.

RVD made a name for himself in ECW back in the 90s before debuting in WWE in 2001. He would go on to become one of the most popular names in the company, but that doesn’t mean his legacy is just tied to those companies.

As seen on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, the WWE Hall Of Famer made his debut in the company and immediately came out to ‘Walk’ by Pantera, which was his old ECW theme song.

While speaking on an unreleased episode of his 1 Of A Kind podcast via Inside The Ropes, RVD talked about his shocking AEW debut and admitted that coming out to ‘Walk’ pit him in a different vibe altogether.


That was awesome. Yeah, when I found out that he (Tony Khan) was gonna have the rights to ‘Walk,’ it just put me in a different vibe, you know what I mean? Just knowing the reaction that-that was going to get and how the fans would be emotionally connected to that, you know, let it play for a few seconds.

And then it wasn’t until a little while, hour or so, within the first hour when I was at the building when that just changed (I officially would be coming out to ‘Walk’). I was like, ‘What? Wait, how? Is this updated? Because I just yesterday … sweet!’ I was like, ‘That’s awesome.’ So yeah, I read some of the comments on social media… people saying (it) brought tears to their eyes and stuff like that. It’s pretty cool.

RVD is set to compete in a match against Jack Perry for the FTW Championship on next week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. We’ll have to wait and see how the match will turn out.

What’s your view on what RVD said? Were you happy to see him make his debut in AEW? Sound off in the comments!
