Rob Van Dam recently spoke to veteran journalist Bill Apter about wrapping up his latest run with WWE, noting that he knew exactly when his start date and end date were, and knew exactly when he was going to finish up with the company.
RVD was also asked about Paul Heyman and where he is now, to which he replied:
“Paul reached a level he deserves in this business. It’s nice to see the respect given back and to see Paul where he’s at right now. He’s no longer in a place where people are trying to bury him and trying to put him out of business. Now they look at him with appreciation like he is of wrestling royalty because he is. I see him pulling some of the younger guys aside backstage, giving his advice to them. It makes me feel happy inside to know he’s passing that along. There aren’t too many guys that are at his level that has to offer what he has to offer. That’s Paul… very special, one of a kind.”
