Been there, done that, and got the T-shirt, son, and you're just doing reruns.

Re: Rob Van Dam-ECW World Champion?
I thought it was pretty much a lock that he was going to beat Awesome for the belt but ended up breaking his ankle. But, Van Dam never really needed the World Title. He was the most over guy in the company and actually increased the value of the TV Title. And to be honest, I don't recall RVD ever getting a shot at the ECW World Title. He was to that title what Cena is to the WWE Title, he didn't really need it.
Also, LOL @ RVD not being trusted. When has he ever no-showed? If anything, you got it backwards. You could trust the wrestlers in ECW, even Sandman because they always showed up. But, you couldn't trust the guy running the company, as he told lie after life and still owes many of the performers. Van Dam, along with Dreamer, where the most loyal to the company because they didn't leave until the end. Everybody else had stints elsewhere before coming back or only joined ECW in the dying days.
