Rob Van Dam Recalls Getting IMPACT Banned From Twitch

Rob Van Dam was too hot for Twitch.

Rob Van Dam's most recent run in pro wrestling came in IMPACT Wrestling. Van Dam, for the first time since his early days in ECW, became a heel and embraced his trailblazing offense in an egotistical manner and also embraced his real-life polyamorous relationship with now-wife, Katie Forbes.

One segment, in particular, featured the three of them in bed and that segment would get IMPACT banned from Twitch due to the platform's strict provisions on sexual content.

Reflecting on the segment on Cafe de Rene with Rene Dupree, RVD said IMPACT wrote and edited the segment, which he calls ridiculous.

"This was a skit that we did on IMPACT’s show with me, and Katie, and our girlfriend, Jennifer. First off, just the fact that they started adding Jennifer into the promos made me realize like, ‘Wow. That’s how small the world is here.' We tweet a couple of times and then they pick up on our Twitter and that becomes the storyline. We posted some stuff and all of a sudden, it’s in the storylines. I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m okay with that. Whatever.’ But they did this skit, we were celebrating something and the three of us were in bed. I had a robe on and Jennifer says, ‘Let me see that Rob Van dick!,' and rips it open."

RVD continued, "It was ridiculous. They wrote it, they edited it, they showed it, and then got banned from Twitch.TV, which I guess was a pretty good part of their audience. So, they were banned and then had to get reinstated."

Elsewhere on the podcast, RVD revealed he has no plans to sign with any major wrestling promotion in North America. Learn more here.
