    Rob Van Dam - What A Humble Guy!!!

    From the main page;

    Rob Van Dam participated in an interview with Stu Stone of MTV's Blowin U and discussed his tenures with ECW and WWE. He also explained why he believes he is bigger than TNA.

    "It's different fun. When I was in ECW, all the major companies were jockeying for me and trying to sign me up. I was building my name up and at the same time i was using my momentum for the betterment of the company," Van Dam said.

    "Now I'm a bigger star than the company actually because TNA doesn’t have the name brand recognition yet."

    RVD made similar comments last August in the following blog post on his official website, which garnered a negative reaction in the locker room. It also prompted then-TNA talent Kevin Nash to lash out at RVD on Twitter.

    "I'd imagine a lot of the old TNA guys are feeling like they're taking a back seat. The thing is...you can't argue with the numbers. Last week TNA broke new all-time records for ratings! TNA needed a change. The 6-sided ring and the great technical wrestlers -that nobody knew-wasn't working. TNA brought in two rock stars, and look at the company now! Dixie often points out how hiring Jeff Hardy and RVD started a whole new era, why do some of the wrestlers not see it? Too, young, too green, too selfish to have the correct perspective. Whereas some of the TNA "stars" are lucky to get recognized walking around the studios, Jeff and myself live like actual celebrities, signing autographs and taking pictures EVERYWHERE we go. Without experiencing this, it's probably hard to imagine. In fact, very few wrestlers stick out in people's minds the way that Jeff and I do. WE love our fans and we love their love. TNA is blowing up. Good things will come our way and I see it all happening now."

    "This is a very exciting time. More people watching TNA means more people exposed to the other wrestlers on the card too...as long as they're good enough to hang around with the rising standards."

    Go ahead and give yourself a pat on the back Rob why don't you? There's nothing like a bit of shameless self promotion! Must be a relief to be a big fish in a small pond again - just like the old ECW days, right Rob?

    Lol, I can't believe it but this makes Hogan look humble!

    It's your average case of TNA assclownery; everybody in that company thinks their shit don't stink.

    TNA's egos are unbelievable. No wonder we hear reports about TNA wrestlers having heat backstage and eye rolling between one another.

    Makes a good argument for why Vince runs such a tight ship - let these fools start making decisions for themselves and you get....well, WCW. This is where problems arise when people start thinking they are bigger than the business. I think Rob's wandered into The Wrong Side Of Town lol

    Van Dam's had a massive ego for years. Not exactly news or surprising.
    I'd rather have nothing than have a lie.

    With his major starpower, he could instead help TNA become a bigger company.

    Funny how every big name to come in has said that every same thing. Yet TNA is still the same bush league company.
