On The Steve Austin Show, Rob Van Dam talked having a difficult time working with other performers during his stint with TNA.
The former TNA World Heavyweight Champion had shared that a lot of TNA performers were not well-rounded or able to understand in-ring storytelling. Van Dam suggested that the unwillingness of the wrestlers and other talent to learn made dealing with them a lot harder.
"When I was with TNA there [were] a lot of guys that really felt like they had it and they didn't need to get better. They were fine with where they were at in their career and they were in whatever. And then, working with them was a little frustrating because there [were] a lot of the times when they would want to do something, and they would actually put up, I don't want to say argument or debate
And then 100% of the time, D'Lo Brown would come over [and say], 'no, Rob's right' and he would have to explain it and after a while, I was like, 'you know what? I'm going to be in my car. Just let me know when it's match time. I just want to go out there and show off.' And I didn't enjoy a part of it, having to deal with people I feel, I don't want to say it was a lack of respect. But I'm just more comfortable with where I've come and where I'm at and appreciating that than some of them seem to be."
