Truly One of a kind. His hardcore/high flier/ martial arts style was a ton of fun to watch in his prime.

Re: Rate the Classic Superstar: Rob Van Dam edition

Off-topic.

I'm confused as how The Rock got "In-Ring 7.5".

Everyone loves The Rock, & like-wise when it comes to his matches. He isn't technical, but he's one of the few who could get you out your seats; when the reversal into The Rock Bottom comes, it's electrifying.

The Miz is great outside the ring, & good inside to receive a 7.5 (Average score for a WWE wrestler), but rarely do you have the crowd pumped during the match.

When the match starts, what's more important?, being emotionally invested & having goosebumps or seeing a more flexible guy do his choreographed flips while the crowd goes mild?

The same with a lot of wrestlers really, the "story-telling" doesn't stop when the bell rings, & I don't think doing flips, & being clean should rate highly if the crowd is bored. Splitting it would be good.

Bah GAWD ALMIGHTY! It's him!!!

Although Brock Lesnar's "Go to hell tour" might be coming to a close; we still have the decade strong, Vince McMahon's "Go fuck yourself" tour to look forward to.

RVD is just an odd case; when he's on, he's difficult to top or even class but when he's phoning it in, formulaic is an understatement. Unfortunately, even in his prime with ECW, he was too inconsistent.

Damn shame.

Re: Rate the Classic Superstar: Rob Van Dam edition

Looks - 8.0 - He definitely had a look unique to himself and he owned it

In Ring 5.0 - The problem with RVD is his workrate and in ring abilities would range from trash lazy wrestling one night to five star technical marvels the next. He was never consistent with his skills, especially in his later years when he went full blown lazy and adopted a routine paint by numbers move set.

Charisma - 8.5 - He had a ton of it.

Mic Skills - 4 - He wasn't awful and could get done what needed to be done on the mic but he certainly wasn't selling tickets based on his mic work.
