Rob Van Dam discusses Seth Rollins and his RVD tribute gear that he wore at the Extreme Rules premium live event in 2022.
Seth Rollins isn't shy when it comes to having extortionate special gear on WWE premium live events. In the past, Rollins has wore gear that has paid tribute to Dusty Rhodes, Elton John, Thanos, The Joker, among many others.
At the Extreme Rules premium live event back in October 2022, Rollins wore gear that was very similar to the style of gear that Rob Van Dam wears. It was a fitting tribute, as the event was being held in Philadelphia, the birthplace of Extreme Championship Wrestling, where Rob Van Dam really made his name in the world of wrestling.
In a new interview with WrestlingNews.co, Rob Van Dam discussed the tribute gear and revealed that he found out about it on Twitter the next morning.
“It’s pretty cool you know because they were in Philadelphia and it was some kind of Extreme Rules match so it was cool to be the role model for that whole thing, for at least Seth. Nah, I found out on Twitter the next day like everybody else. I understood it more the next day as I got a little bit more info and then of course some people are like ‘Dude they’re gonna reach out to you, they’re gonna bring you in’ and I’m like not thinking too much into it. Who knows, I figured it was probably Paul Heyman’s idea so I sent him a fist bump emoji.”
