Rob Van Dam recently revealed that he was arrested for possession of marijuana in 2006, while in WWE. He explained how he would have done things differently before this arrest and how he was immature at this point in his life.
Rob Van Dam was WWE and ECW Champion around this time, but lost both titles after his arrest in 2006. He was ultimately suspended by WWE for violating its welfare policy.
In a recent interview with Thibaud Choplin, Rob Van Dam opened up about being immature during his first stint in WWE and how he would have done things differently before his arrest in 2006.
“I would have been much more careful behind the wheel. I would have been more careful with the speed limit and I wouldn’t have sprinkled my weed on the dashboard and I wouldn’t have smoked in the car without having a good air freshener. I would have been more careful and I would have been more open-minded. Part of that competitive spirit back then was arrogance. It was part of it. I couldn’t open my heart to a lot of other guys in the room because I felt like, ‘Dude, fuck this guy, fuck this guy. They want to take my place or they talk about me. I’d rather knock this guy out dude then, now I look like I’m so immature. It was necessary right now, I guess, ”RVD said. (H / T Post Wrestling)
Rob Van Dama also said he was “not in talks” with Chris Jericho or anyone else at AEW. He categorically stated that he was “all about the money” and that he was making 20-30 times more than he did when he was in WWE.
