In 2011 he worked alongside WWE wrestlers Dave Batista and Nelson Frazier Jr. in a movie titled Wrong Side of Town which was released the following year. Van Dam delivered a speech directed towards Paul Heyman, and not being originally booked on the show was a point of contention between Van Dam and Heyman for a time. Wrestling fans have often wondered… have the two ever met? Van Dam aligned himself with fellow ECW alumni Tommy Dreamer, Raven, Stevie Richards, Rhino, Brother Devon, Pat Kenney, Al Snow and Mick Foley, who saved him from a beating at the hands of Abyss. Many fans believe Rob Van Dam to be the brother of Actor and martial artist Jean-Claude Van Damme for their similar resemblance and name. EXCLUSIVE: 'They made Britain great again by leaving, I hope they do the same for us.' Van-Damme then attacked Robbie VD from behind with a nice kickboxing move, knocking Robbie to the floor. [163] After succeeding in his first televised title defense against Desmond Wolfe, Styles attacked Van Dam, announcing the invocation of the rematch clause for Sacrifice. [52] Sabu also expressed interest in Van Dam's championship, leading to a title match between the two at Wrestlepalooza. [243] At Money in the Bank, Van Dam took part in the Money in the Bank Ladder match for the briefcase, but was won by Seth Rollins.

[64] Van Dam continued to defend the ECW World Television Championship for the remainder of the year. In November he regained the title, renamed the AWR World Heavyweight Championship at this point, from Duprée on November 29 winning two decisions in a Two Out of Three Falls match. quite a stupid gimmick, but the crowed loved to be involved in the action somehow. [82][83] He then entered into a rivalry with William Regal over Regal's Intercontinental Championship. [46][55], Van Dam remained the World Television Champion for the rest of 1998, and he started 1999 by making successful title defenses against the likes of Spike Dudley,[58] Lance Storm at Guilty as Charged,[59] Jerry Lynn at Crossing the Line, Balls Mahoney at Anarchy Rulz,[60] and 2 Cold Scorpio at CyberSlam.[61][62]. Because Jean was Rob's evil twin brother, of course Rob looked just like him, and it infuriated Rob when people would stop him in the street and ask if he was his brother Jean Claude Van Dam (JCVD).
