The UK’s Power Slam magazine recently interviewed Rob Van Dam. Here’s his take on Triple H:
Is it true you had problems with Triple H when you worked for WWE?
Problems? I had problems liking him. I had problems feeling compatible with him on any other level other than the fact that we’re both wrestlers. He would be one of the last guys you would see sharing a car with me. If we weren’t both wrestlers, I doubt I’d have anything in common with him.
There were a few occasions — Unforgiven 2002 springs to mind — when it seemed like the perfect time for you to defeat Triple H. After he attacked and beat you down on the September 16, 2002 Raw, you sought revenge in a singles bout at Unforgiven six days later. A win there would have been a tremendous boon for you. Meanwhile, a loss for HHH would have done his status no harm at all. As it turned out, HHH won by pinfall. It seemed like he cut you off.
Well, I don’t disagree with you. And that’s why I’m glad my career is caught on videotape and DVD, so the fans can watch what happened in my career and say it all for me, like you just did.
You’ve nothing further to add about HHH?
When you’re watching RVD TV (his online TV show), don’t look for HHH to be in Rob Van Dam’s house.
