RVD on WWE’s revival of the ECW brand name: “I have a really well balanced sensation on that due to the fact that I have benefits and drawbacks that I feel. At the time, specifically when I remained in that competitive frame of mind of remaining in the dressing space and sensation like the authors are simply, you understand, fu ** ing with me. When you’re ideal in there, you got through all this things. For me, completely various frame of mind that I have now with this delighted time in my life.”
“So at the time, I actually took a look at it defensively from ECW. You understand, I believed he’s travestying ECW. Due to the fact that he didn’t like the fans shouting EC Dub, I believed he may have even brought ECW back simply to damage it. He took credit for it, so he trained them to shout EC Dub throughout the programs by putting out the ECW DVD. I was like, Wow, guy, this man’s insane.”
“Maybe he brought it back simply to entirely erase the severe style to it, and they did totally erase the severe style to it. It was like, you understand, simply like any other program other than they put way less into it. Method less budget plan, method less marketing. Your home reveals at that time, you understand, we’re simply the old ECW bad arenas from the mid 90s. We would in some cases movie after SmackDown on the SmackDown night, and there was some type of odd manner in which we were making money off a split of their gate which actually wasn’t reasonable. In the end, you understand, allegedly all the numbers straightened out, whatever.”

Since he’s all enthusiast in the black sweatshirt t-shirt with the sleeves, I believed that was cool. I enjoyed dealing with him. I had a match that was 3 versus one. That was quite cool. I imply, something like that when I reflect makes me believe possibly I was thought about in a much greater position then it seemed like at the time since that would not typically be something they would finish with like, a mid-carder, or whatever. In some cases I think about it like that, like, well, that’s truly cool that I got to deal with Vince and Shane and Umaga.”

I suggest, certainly, there’s an exaggeration to it, specifically to my ego and additional cruelty. I didn’t discover to do a spin and a partner kick from mimicing other wrestlers that did it. You understand, I was a kickboxer and I gained from kickboxing and martial arts trainers and I brought those relocations into wrestling since that belonged to me. That was what I provided for enjoyable when I’m displaying at some foolish celebration in high school, you understand, backflips, adding a tree and doing a backflip, due to the fact that I saw it on Chopsocky theater.”
