It’s not big secret that Rob Van Dam likes to smoke, as he’s been pretty open about the fact that he enjoys using marijuana.
The former WWE Champion spoke to Chris Van Vliet about how often he would perform in the ring while under the influence of marijuana, and he said that back in ECW he was high 100% of the time.
“I’m going to say 100%. After that from 2001 all the way to my last run in 2014 in which case I would say it was much, much lower more like maybe 90% of the time.”
When asked if he thinks it’s dangerous to wrestle while stoned RVD responded with the following:
“I don’t know. Back in the day I know there would be certain people that would put together the fact that I would hurt a lot of people and the fact that I was stoned. When I was in the competitive state of mind, I would be offended by that like ‘Screw you! You’re saying something about me and my skills. I can do this with my eyes closed!’ My ego would take over like that. But looking back at it, I don’t think so, but I definitely think they had an argument that was worth considering. But when you use it all the time it doesn’t affect you the way it affects other people.”
