WWE Superstar Rob Van Dam recently spoke to The Burlington County Times.
When asked about how WWE is different from ECW:
"In ECW, the fans would warm me up," RVD said. "I'd walk around the ring and slap hands with everyone and get ready for the match. I'd feed of that energy, I would use that to create positive energy. In WWE, it's different. It's a timed show, everything is timed. We know when we get to the ring, we know when there's a commercial. We have to do everything on a schedule, but I still find a way to connect with the fans."
When asked about not traveling as much anymore:
"The 18-year-old me wouldn't understand the 43-year-old me because then I wanted to travel and see the world," he said. "But I love being home. Some guys are on the road and can't wait to get home, others are at home and can't wait to get on the road. I'm definitely the one who wants to be home."
