RVD Talks About His Love For MMA, Crossover Athletes Like Lesnar & Batista

On location at Resurrection Fighting Alliance 4 in Las Vegas, ProMMAnow.com reporter Anton Skoro talks with TNA Impact Wrestling pro wrestler Rob Van Dam about his love for MMA, his thoughts on crossover athletes like Brock Lesnar, Bobby Lashley and Dave Bautista, and whether or not he would have gone into MMA.

RVD, who is now 41 years old, commented on whether he would have gotten into mixed martial arts if it was around when he was 18 years old:

“Actually it is the only sport I watch. It really is. I can’t hold a conversation with anything else. If someone wants to talk basketball, football, soccer, golf - even wrestling - I actually don’t even watch wrestling. It’s my job, you know; unless I’m there at the arena watching," Van Dam said. "But, MMA, I can’t name all the fighters, I’m not like one of those hardcore guys, but I really enjoy the whole competitive spirit that I see when I watch it. I’m a big fan.”

RVD also said he has no plans to slow down as a wrestler and wishes he could use a more hardcore in-style. Here's video of the full interview:
