Tights and Fight Ep. 151: Rob Van Dam on his career, concussions and CBD

| 0 comments
Guests: 
Rob Van Dam

This week, Hal, Danielle and Lindsey are joined by Rob Van Dam. Through his 30 year career, he’s been seen in dozens of wrestling promotions and been a champion for just about all of them. He’s perhaps best known for his time in WWE where he was a multiple time Intercontinental and tag champion before he beat John Cena for the WWE Title in 2005.

RVD is also known for being one of the original founding performers of Extreme Championship Wrestling. While he doesn’t think ECW content will ever be welcome in mainstream TV again, he does think there’s still one particular fledgling company that is embracing the philosophies that made it successful.

Rob will discuss his career highlights, why he wants to keep wrestling in spite of having such a long career and why he’s dedicated to finding CBD treatments for concussions.

RVD’s documentary Headstrong is available now.

All of that, plus New Japan’s G1 Climax, Impact Wrestling’s Slammiversary and whether or not WWE’s main roster is getting left behind in a Summer full of awesome wrestling events.

Hosted by Hal Lublin Danielle Radford, and Lindsey Kelk.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
