Rob Van Dam Reveals Who Convinced Him To Join TNA



In a recent interview conducted for The UK Sun, Rob Van Dam had the following to say about leaving WWE, working there, and joining TNA:

“When my contract ended with the WWE, TNA tried to get me straight away but I said no. Eric Bischoff called me, Dixie Carter called me, even Jason Hervey picked up the phone. But I said to myself that they were not serious because (Hulk) Hogan hadn’t called yet … Then he did, I was doing my radio show and Hogan called in. The guy spent a half hour explaining on the air why I should join him in TNA. That was what got me here. Hulk is the most recognized guy there is in the industry, I value his opinion and knew he was doing what he felt was best for us all when he brought guys like myself to TNA.”
