New Impact Wrestling star Rob Van Dam recently spoke to Chris Van Vliet of WSVN-TV for a new interview. You can see highlights below, and the full interview above.
How often was he high when he wrestled in ECW?
"I'm going to say 100%. After that from 2001 all the way to my last run in 2014 in which case I would say it was much, much lower more like maybe 90% of the time."
Does he think wrestling high is dangerous?
"I don't know. Back in the day I know there would be certain people that would put together the fact that I would hurt a lot of people and the fact that I was stoned. When I was in the competitive state of mind, I would be offended by that like 'Screw you! You're saying something about me and my skills. I can do this with my eyes closed!' My ego would take over like that. But looking back at it, I don't think so, but I definitely think they had an argument that was worth considering. But when you use it all the time it doesn't affect you the way it affects other people."
Who would he want to induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame?
"Right off the bat I think Paul Heyman. I think it would really be good for me to try to hear his perspective firsthand of what his thoughts were on me and him developing me. It would be an experience for me for him to open up like that."
