Rob Van Dam has cleared up any confusion regarding his comments on Dark Side of the Ring.
RVD was a prominent talking head on the "Plane Ride From Hell" episode of Dark Side of the Ring, recounting what he saw on the infamous plane ride in 2002 and the overall environment back then.
In the episode, Ric Flair was accused by flight attendant Heidi Doyle of sexual assault, with allegations that he forced her to touch his penis. RVD commented on the alleged incident, saying that Flair crowded Doyle and was trying to make him touch her.
Taking to social media, RVD clarified his comments.
Just watched DSOTR. Heavy. Some insight for those who can handle it-— Rob Van Dam (@TherealRVD) September 21, 2021
1) I haven’t seen Ric Flair’s dick. My comment about fans shouldn’t see him doing the helicopter was a response to DSOTR telling me that’s what they were told. They shouldn’t. I don’t want to see it either.
2) I said “trying to make her touch him” referring to his body crowding her space and her backing up like bad breath was in her face.I thought maybe they were playing(from seeing a similar scene at the hotel bar)but I wasn’t interested in naked Ric. Still ain’t.I tried to sleep.— Rob Van Dam (@TherealRVD) September 21, 2021
I can confirm I didn’t see that and I didn’t say that.— Rob Van Dam (@TherealRVD) September 21, 2021
