After receiving backlash from listens for a previous podcast on comments made towards the TNA roster, Rob Van Dam decided to put out another podcast to clarify his comments that WWE has the better talent.
“So I had mentioned that it’s good to be back in WWE, where the best of the best are. The wrestling caliber here is so much higher than everywhere else I’ve ever been. These fools have taken that to say that I’m putting TNA down. ‘You’re two-faced, you’re a backstabber.’ No, I’m not saying that.
“TNA has a lot of really really good wrestlers that could easily come to WWE and go right up to the top and still be some of the best wrestlers here. They also have a lot of wrestlers that can go to NXT and learn a lot and get a lot more rounded before they go somewhere. And if you ask any TNA wrestlers who’ve been at the top like Jeff Hardy or Kurt Angle or Bubba Dudley or Devon Dudley, I’m pretty sure they would agree with me.
“Now better is an opinion, so for you ridiculous fans that want to say, ‘Nu uh, I think the wrestling style is better at Ring of Honor. That’s where it’s a true art.’ Yes, I’m not giving a mark’s perspective. That’s for you. In fact, I’m giving a wrestler’s perspective being in the ring wrestling with wrestlers. Unless you don’t think I qualify, Google me. You might see I’ve been around. But for you marks that want to give your opinion, yes, you have the right to your opinion.”
