IT'S ALIVE! RVD TV LIVES!

Happy New Year everybody! I’m excited about 2008 and all the good things it’s bringing.

Many of my projects will be coming into play over the next few months, so I look forward to filling you in as they come to pass. Of those projects, one that we’ve all been waiting for has reached its moment.

RVD TV is open!!! Check it out and sign up for a membership to get a new episode every week! This is how to keep up with my current situations and projects, how to get my workouts with personal instruction, and how to grow inside on a spiritual level so that you may inspire others. Hang around with me and just see if I don’t rub off on you. Once a month you’ll see me in various genuine conversations with my many celebrity friends. Go to robvandam.com to learn all the facts and be among the first official members, which means you’ll also get an autographed kick-ass 8x10 photo like the one on the front page-made out to you.

While part of the site is still under construction, keep a few things in mind. To get the new RVD’s Dojo T shirt, and the RVD TV T shirt, click here Holland's Windmill Airbrush

To check out the merchandise in the 5 Star Comics Store, including a bunch of autographed items, RVD 5STAR STORE: RVD's 5Star Home

So, I had a big match with Booker T. in Texas last week. Thank you to everybody that made it, driving in from all over the map! PWA has a lot going for them. Official Booker T. Web Site The promotion and the wrestling school are very professional- as if you’d expect anything less from Book. It was also great to see Scorpio, Boogie and Shelton who were in the house. It was fun wrestling Booker T, but not fun enough to live back on the road again, in case you’re wondering. I do appreciate the booking offers from all over the country and also Japan, England, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Portugal, Ireland, Spain, and any other country I may have forgotten, but I’m still not looking to leave home.

Traveling to Houston and back did remind me how much I dislike flying. Many of you can relate to the pain-in-the-ass security lines and privacy violations, and probably even the delays and cancellations. I’m giving myself a headache just thinking about all that crap, let alone the constant, unnecessary announcements on the airplane that have to be a deliberate attempt by the captain to keep me from getting any rest. I don’t want to look out the window. I’m trying to sleep! I don’t care that we’ll be starting our descent in 25 minutes. For the love of God, just do it! They even wake me to try to get me to eat their “food”, but if you ever put your tray down you are trapped like baby in a high chair and that’s what they want. Now, here’s a perspective from a frequent flyer. That’s right- I qualify. Spending hundreds of days a year going through airports, you learn the system. A couple weeks ago, I went from my car to boarding my airplane in 7 minutes in Long Beach. LAX is a lot bigger. I usually do it in 20, I’ve done it in much less.

Even when a frequent flyer can deal with the challenges set forth by the system…you know what else they face? They still have to deal with you! You cock-blockers that don’t make a living from flying make traveling as hard as you possibly can for us. I use the word cock-blocker because I think it sounds funny-but here’s what you do. Let’s just start at the gate, shall we? You know that we’re boarding by group numbers and you know you’re in group 4. Why do you have to stand in front of the passage way, cock-blocking us passengers who get to board ahead of you? I’m sorry you don’t have credentials to pre-board and they won’t let you on until they call your group number but dude, get out of the way! Once inside, I can wait to pass until you’ve stored your luggage but when we are deplaning, after the flight, don’t stand beside me or sneak up to try to pass from behind so I can’t get out of my seat. We do it by rows, starting at the front, cock-blockers! After we get off the plane, you cock-block on the moving sidewalk like it’s a freakin’ ride at Six Flags. You cock-block at baggage claim because -why should anyone else get their bags if yours hasn’t come down yet, right? I have no doubt that you drive home slowly, in the passing lane. If I’ve offended any of you cock-blockers-hey- no hard feelings. Just think of someone else once in awhile. Hey wasn’t that a funny use of the word cock-blocker?

We have to be careful to not let our pet peeves get the better of us. I bet I know one of yours. How do you like people who talk on cell phones while they’re driving? I heard that they’re going to outlaw it here in California this year. Do you think we should enforce laws based on “good ideas”? Or do you think we should use statistics? I’m all for making a change for the better, but I know we don’t all have the same views on logic. I think texting while driving is potentially dangerous, but do I know that it causes many accidents? I don’t know. This should be a factor, when we’re taking people’s freedoms. Maybe we should outlaw eating while driving. Dipping your French fries in ketchup at 60 M.P.H. has to be dangerous. Anyone looking into that? Seems like it would cause the same kind of danger. I’m just saying, for instance, if they’re going to say a substance kills-shouldn’t they have an actual case or two to prove it before they ban it? Maybe cell phones really do cause accidents. Maybe the almost-silent-noise of the hybrid cars really do cause blind people to get hit often when they’re crossing the road. Maybe selling or buying alcohol on Sundays really…hey-what IS up with that? I just want to enforce my opinion that real-life cases should be required before we surrender our quick feelings on a subject that sounds good based on “common sense”. Look around. Our senses aren’t all that common.

You know me- I’m just trying to have you thinking.

As always, I look forward to reading your feedback. Have a great day!

Just think, in ECW's REAL days, if they had a Royal Rumble, the winner would have went after the TV title.

Hi Rob, your site looks sweet.I been wanting to write for a while ,but i've been having trouble with my modem anyway. I'm using my friends computer and i'll finally get to say somethings i wanted to say.

I miss your match ,but i got to watch the match 2 days after. I just don't watch WWE as much ,because i want to see new talent rise or older talent get there break.But in the WWE it's all about the game just like the song. I enjoy seeing you back and hearing the fans reaction on seeing you back.But i just couldn't fell to notice that they didn't let Santino finish his sentence and just putting the music without leaving a little expectation to who it would.
be. I dislike the W.W.E to have you get hit before you finish your Rob van Dam chant.Like if you were stupid to do you Rob Van Dam chant right in front of your opponent when you been getting hit almost every time you do it in front of an opponent.Well at least you did it before pinning Santino,but if you wouldn't have done it the match would have gone really really fast. Still enjoy to see you, even if it was briefly.I just don't thing the W.W.E gave you enough time,because the match went really fast.

On another subject i felt the W.W.E should have had Jeff Hardy in the Royal Rumble and win it. I wish you could have giving your thoughts on how the WWE pushes younger talent,or if you still feel the same about the WWE before you left.

I know if you sign with them you won't be able to express your open opinion. Give me your thoughts on something, i always enjoy your opinion and would like to know more on how you feel the WWE or wrestling for that matter is going.

I have followed your career from the beginning and hope nothing better than you finish your wrestling career the best way possible.And if you felt under pushed i believe it's important to help wrestlers not be treated the same way cause of politics or what ever reason. For the sake of wrestling and the WWE and all it's fans. I feel this is important and the many reason guys like Booker Christian left the WWE. Other guys who have felt the same stayed in the WWE just to get a push finally or get there big title shot only to resign there contract and be flushed down the toilet again. or else nothing will ever change. Many things never change,but fans shouldn't be blind about it. why else would fans see wrestling when you see the same people getting push. Then there are pretend pushes like you see Jericho or Jeff Hardy going for the title just for a small story. then you hear Jim Ross saying Jericho out of the title picture. Since when does it mean you get one shot a at the title and that's it no rematch.Story concludes.Save us from Orton bull crap. Triple H gave himself the Title for one hour just to add to his title reigns and don't be involve in the title picture till wrestlemania. Jim Ross said Triple H lost his opportunity to be world Champ. He just had the title some months ago his haded 11 times.too Bad. when will HHH HBK R.Flair leave to Smack Down and stay there. doesn't Batista know he was sent there just to get out of HHH title reigns with out effecting there friendship. Bret Hart Hates
HHH HBK and Flair,because there all
the same. One last thing. I read in WWE Magazine that Triple H said that report were false about he not wanting to loose the WWE title to you at One Night Stand.(If he were champ not J.Cena) Which i know it's true. then went on to say that hogan was supposed to have a rematch with HBK after SummerSlam and it never happened. that was the reason that HBK after loosing to Hogan was talking about how great hogan was during that match. Because he just wanted Hogan to do the rematch and loose. Just like HBK did with K.Angle. He just wanted a win over the legendary hogan.hogan has his pride to neither hogan or Austin wanted to loose to each other at wrestlemania
so they never had the match too much ego in place.and i wouldn't blame them many wrestles try to divine there greatness by having multiple title reigns.You Had the Television title for years no world title no ECW world title. you shined for just being cool and awesome performer to watch.I say the most exciting wrestler to watch
since Warrior.Who was exciting in his type of way.You didn't have to tell jokes or hang out with other legends to make a name for yourself.

Rob take care from probably your biggest fan J.L.-T.V. to R.V.D T.V
(P.S. Thanks for helping out with my writing)

Long time RVD fan here. Been reading the blog since day one and always anxiously await the next wise words from RVD. After catching the first two episodes of RVDTV, it definitely looks like it’s going to be the whole fuckin’show, but what else would we expect from Rob Van Dam? The blog and RVDTV provide an awesome perspective on issues that we all should question. It’s really cool that you are letting the fans learn more about the off camera RVD. I love your views and attitude about life and society. When I check RVD.com, I know I’ll always find something positive to incorporate into my everyday routine. Keep spreading that positive energy around because this world will never have enough of it. Stay true.

Sean

Leaving from long beach in 7 minutes is pretty easy. That airport is tiny.

You know whats worse than dealing with cock-blockers in the airport? Being "randomly searched" every 5 or so minutes in the airport. Try sitting down waiting in front of your terminal, and being confronted by the lady telling you "We now do terminal security checks...randomly".

You say your one of a kind i don't think you are any more, i used to idilise you for being one of a kind but it doesn't seem like this kid is going to see any more so called one of a kind action. Rvd i know if you return you cant express you feelings like you are now because of you being retired but still you should return to ecw and prove me wrong about saying you are afraid of randy orton.

Hey Rob,
I just signed up to rvdTV for a whole year, but being a bit unschooled in the art of computers Im still trying to figure out how too make it Full Screen?? On the plus side I finally got to see what I been waiting for RVD-TV!!!!
Plus I did some post Christmas splurging in RVDs Secret Stash, so the budget is well and truely blown. Tony is a great bloke at velacards & is an extreme help everytime!!! I can't wait to see what else you pull out of the back of the cupbourd, even if I cant afford to buy it all I very much enjoy all the photo's of these absolute one of a kind items with candid photo's. That one of you cross-eyed with the 8x10 made me laugh heaps!!! :)
After reading your joy of flight I count my lucky stars again thinking you came all the way down to Australia last year. I have only been too Tasmania (about a 45min. flight from Melbourne)and I almost had a heart attack when I saw the sniffer dog at the exit. Not realizing at the time it was only sniffing for fruit&vegitables.
And here in Oz talking on the phone while driving is against the law, also eating, texting, and dvd players are not permited in the front seats while the car is in motion. That show Mythbusters did an episode on some of them and part proved it was the thinking involved that caused driver distraction. Cool to Watch,,,
That reminds me,,your storie on the ying yang is Awesome!! And your spinning ying yang,the music behind it sound a bit like when the would say "back at the hall of justice" Anyhow I like it!!!! :)
This is gunna be the best year ever!! Time to roll...

Hi Rob,So you Didn't have that connection with the crowd.Please, I guess Rob you should have writers have you write you down jokes every week so you could get some reaction with the crowd.(like some other dude which is married to the boss daughter does.)

Rob about Jericho being held back, Well they stop putting the beginning of his new theme music, which have fans forget about Mr. Save Us.So much for saving the WWE especially from Randy Orton,thats all gone now.He's involve in a storyline with probally the most boring former WWE champ ever.He gets his ass kick by him in one show. In the next show he starts
talking about his son seeing fear in his eyes and some crab like that.Very serious Jericho. not like in his 1st WWE stint where he began to interrupt every wrestler in almost every show, and making fun of them.No body wan't to know about Jericho being a dad a husband.And much less see him be so serious.With Carlito and CM Punk
they started putting them in stupid storylines with divas like Kelly and Trish.So guys wouldn't see them
cool enough and girls would stop day dreaming a bit with them. Imagine putting Jeff Hardy who's hot now in a similiar situation like that bringing in his kids his girl friend or his father.No body wants to see Jeff like that.It just isn't cool with the fans.guys will only hate him.

For me they Tried to buried you by making you be part of the old breed
especially when much of the new fans never got to see the older ECW stars. It's like bringing in HBK now and know one ever knowing anything about him.His fame cause more from his legacy then the present.That's what Triple H use DX again.He didn't care about DX and teaming up with Michaels ,but he knew that would help him be popular again,that,s why now he keeps doing some jokes,things he never care about doing ever before.

Rob about you coming back to the WWE.Well Rob before they had you loose like evey week or get your ass kicked in the new ECW. I mean Rob,no matter how much fans like you Rob if thet see you loosing week after week they eventually grow tired of it.For all they know Rob your just not good enough.

Boy rob, i would watch the show every week and see you ,but it was pretty hard seeing your favorite
wrestler be shut Down.Especially also at the Elimination Chamber and Survivor Series.

Robby you talked about the prestige of being part of the WWE and being known more world wide.atleast some fans already know you in other countries, but i believe TNA is expanding a bit more and you could help it be more like the old WCW.You could probally bring some of the remaing 2,500 fans from the old ECW and add them to TNA wrestling.

The old WWF and WCW would bash the old ECW,but wrestlers make wrestling and ECW lost lot's of there bright stars to WWF and WCW.Lets pretend WWF and WCW were 50 & 50 in the ratings tied. Then Hall and nash leave WWF to WCW.lets
also pretend that hall and nash which were to big stars represented
10 percent of the 50 the WWF had.What happen? WCW when up 60 to 40 percent in the rating going ahead of WWF. It doesn't always work that way ,but still if there wasn't wrestlers there wasn't a wrestling show.

I believe you could turn the tide.I cant't watch the WWE with all the politics.you see something good just so it be ruined the next week.I rather watch Nacho Libre over & over He's the best.Like you said & i have written before once you sign your trapped with them.

I hope you keep on talking with Booker T which was brought to Raw just to help the return of a guy whos married to the bosses daughter.In here it might be R.V.D.-T.V. ,but in the WWE it's HHH-TV. And that makes for boring TV same old same old,push me lower him crap.

Rob you know ,i always hope you the best(you're the Best) and if it's with the WWE,so be it,but untill that happens i would like you don't regret,but don't forget either.For
Mr.Kennedy Vince is from the darkside of the evil Empire.And the force lies between RVD the savior.

Rob love hearing on the Cleveland Radio show,hope you read this bloq before making a new one.(#28comment) From probally your biggest fan J.L.-T.V.take care,and
hasta la vista ,dude.(your cool,Whatever)just kidding.Bye.

Hi Rob,Rob just when i thought things
might be a little differnet in the WWE.Everything seems to still be the same.Cena Won the Royal Rumble only to not have his wrestlemania match with Randy Orton.

Thing is they'll fight at No Way Out for the title and who ever wins,witch
i thing will be a no decision will go on to wrestle and defend the WWE title at Wrestlemania.Well i believe will obviously be Triple H. Which will make a triple Threat match or posibbly a four way match if they decide to change things at wrestlemania.For now it'll be Orton vs HHH vs Cena at Wrestlemania.

The 6 guys that will compete at the Elimination Chamber are JBL,Umaga ,HBK,HHH,Jericho & Jeff Hardy.Obviously JBL and Umaga will not win,so examine the rest.

Jericho already fought Orton when he came.2nd he might continue his feud with JBL who might just pinned him at the Chamber.3rd i don't see him facing Cena even if it'll be a Triple threat match at Mania.

HBK well he also already fought Orton not long ago.2nd he already fought Cena at Mania last year.3rd
he'll likely challenge Undertakers undeafeated streak at Wrestlemania
as the story seems to have been going from the Rumble.Unless Takers faces Bigshow or Hogan Which i doubt.

Jeff Hardy He already fought and lost cleanly to Randy Orton at the Rumble which people should have expected to after Hardy got the best of Orton the last 2 Raws before the Paperview.2nd i doubt he
fight Cena which now are the 2 biggest Faces on Raw.

Winner Mr.Politics himself HHH. Since when does the winner of the Rumble risk his chance to be at wrestlemania?Triple H failed at the Rumble,but would he place himself in the Elimination Chamber to loose?Which actual story does he have going to Wrestlemania?

It always seems the writers are being control by him.So much for Jeff Hardy,Mr Kennedy winning the Money in the Bank then saying he would use it at Wrestlemania to face the champ.All changed when he left Smackdown for Raw.

When Carlito,Kennedy,MVP,And Jeff get there title shots they'll all be to old to get enough title shots and World Championships.

Rob i know you don't watch the WWE ,but if you did you'll notice that things havn't changed. Some dude shutting down others then once in a while returns to his DX gimmick just so he could sustained his popularity.Ric,HBK,HHH even Vince all use each other.It's all about the Cliq and Evolution which are also Batista and Orton friends of the Game.Takers a legend,Cena to big to be held back. Edge is smart enough if isn't push he'll leave. And the reason other get some pushes or titles is they don't want
the other wrestlers to take notice
or leave like Christian and Angle and Booker and probally even the reason Lashley left.

I hope they make a wrestling union or something to straighting some things out.and Probally then It'll be a better place for you to go to.

Rob you probally know much about this
and you might agree or you might not,that's all right.you probally took a good time to leave ,but i wouldn't mind seeing at wrestlmania freaking mania.Thanks Rob from probally your biggest Wrestling Fan J.L.-T.V.Take care. Bye,Bye.
