Re: Rob Van Dam-ECW World Champion?
I have always heard that had he not been injured during that record breaking ECW TV title run the plan was for him to take the World title from Mike Awesome which was going to be built as the biggest match in ECW history. There is no doubt that Paul Heyman was going to put the World title on Rob Van Dam as he was being groomed to be their top star as Taz was going or had already gone to WWE whilst Mike Awesome was going to WCW. Outside of Rob Van Dam there wasn't really anyone else as most people had gone to WWE or ECW with Tommy Dreamer, Jerry Lynn, New Jack, Justin Credible and The Sandman being the only others really around who could have been on top but none who were as over back then.
