Professional wrestling icon and actor Rob Van Dam has set to become a WWE Hall of Famer at the upcoming induction ceremony which is scheduled to take place on 6th April.
After a week of rumours of speculations of whether the 21-time champion was going to become an inductee, the news was confirmed by RVD himself in a recent interview with Fox Sports.
Glad to be among the chosen few: Soon to become HOF Rob Van Dam words his feelings
One of the most famous names in the global wrestling fandom, Rob Van Dam’s professional career dates back all the way to 1990. Alongside WWE, he has also enjoyed successful tenures in Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) as well as Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) (now known as Impact Wrestling).
“It’s a pretty awesome feeling. Just like you probably would imagine, it feels like I’m being acknowledged and appreciated for my body of work. It feels very good. I’m honored,” RVD stated in the interview hosted earlier this week.
The 50-year-old, who made his WWE (then known as WWF) back in 2001, has held world titles in ECW and TNA as well, and is one of the two only wrestler in the history of the sport to have achieved such a feat, along with Bobby Lashley.
“[Fans have] been calling me future Hall of Famer for years and I always just shrug and say, ‘All right, man. As long as you think so.’ But, glad to be among the chosen few this year,” The Whole F’n Show added.
