Ron Van Dam recently posted these controversial comments on his blog:
"I’d imagine a lot of the old TNA guys are feeling like they’re taking a back seat. The thing is…you
can’t argue with the numbers. Last week TNA broke new all-time records for ratings! TNA needed a change. The 6-sided
ring and the great technical wrestlers -that nobody knew-wasn’t working. TNA brought in two rock stars, and look at
the company now! Dixie often points out how hiring Jeff Hardy and RVD started a whole new era, why do some of the wrestlers
not see it? Too, young, too green, too selfish to have the correct perspective. Whereas some of the TNA “stars”
are lucky to get recognized walking around the studios, Jeff and myself live like actual celebrities, signing autographs and
taking pictures EVERYWHERE we go. Without experiencing this, it’s probably hard to imagine. In fact, very few wrestlers
stick out in people’s minds the way that Jeff and I do. WE love our fans and we love their love."
