RVD wrestled stoned in ECW exactly as often as you thought he did

New, comments

Which is to say, 100% of the time.

How often did Rob Van Dam use marijuana and wrestle high while he worked for Paul Heyman in ECW?

His answer when asked this by Chris Van Vliet:

“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 that was, you know, 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.”

Now you know.
