Reportedly, former WWE Champion Rob Van Dam is going to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2021. He will be joining Molly Holly and Eric Bischoff in the prestigious Class of 2021. RVD will also be featuring on an episode of the WWE Icons documentary, coming out in May.
Rob Van Dam joined WWE during the ECW invasion storyline in 2001. During his time at WWE, RVD held every Championship that WWE had for the men. But RVD has also performed for other major wrestling promotions like World Championship Wrestling and Impact Wrestling.
The Hall of Fame Ceremony will induct the classes of 2020 and 2021. The Class of 2020 has seen a minor change recently. Dave Bautista, who was to be inducted at the ceremony won’t be a part of the event. Due to prior commitments, his induction has been postponed.
Rob Van Dam’s inductor for the ceremony
RVD recently appeared on the ‘That 90’s Wrestling Podcast’. On the podcast, RVD revealed the two people that he would like to induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame. The first name was his former employer at ECW, Paul Heyman.
“It kinda has to be Paul, doesn’t it? I think it has to be Paul. Sabu doesn’t talk very good and on the real Paul is the only real producer-slash-agent that’s ever really had my best interests at heart and understood me and because of that I think it would have to be him, as predictable as that is.”
RVD’s second choice was WWE CEO and Chairman Vince McMahon.
“You know who’d be a second choice though? Vince McMahon. Vince. . . . [I did not have a good relationship with Vince] when I was there cause I had my head up my a**, you know. I really like the lot. The older I am, the more Zen I am . . . I was intimidated talking to Vince, still am…He’s the most important person I know.”
WWE Hall of Fame ceremony will air on 6th April, 2021.
