RVD is regarded as one of the all-time greats as far as in-ring action and death-defying stunts are concerned. His innovative moveset put him above his competition in many ways, but it appears RVD wonders why AEW talent don’t ask veterans for advice.
The WWE Hall of Famer has competed all over the world in various pro wrestling promotions such as WWE, ECW, Impact Wrestling and now AEW, among many others. He is never afraid of sharing his wealth of knowledge with those who simply ask for it.
Tully Blanchard recently revealed that no one in AEW ever asked him or Arn Anderson for advice, which is something he found odd as both of them were skilled veterans with lots of knowledge.
While speaking with Party with Marty, RVD talked about what Tully Blanchard said regarding AEW talent not asking for advice. The Whole F’N Show cast doubt on the talents’ level of respect for veterans.
“I heard Tully Blanchard say it, and I’m told Arn Anderson said it too, although that is hearsay, that the young guys don’t want their input ever. [They] never ask them ever for any help or anything on their matches and stuff … I mean, that’s important to me. It makes me think, do they think they know it all? Do they not respect them enough? But also, it’s awkward for them because they’re not taught like us to go around and shake everyone’s hand and stuff.“
RVD also previously made it clear that he has no intention of retiring. Regardless, we certainly hope AEW talent learn to take advice from veterans, as they clearly need to improve their skills.
