Rob Van Dam Tells Story Of His First Time Smoking Weed

Rob Van Dam has been a high-flyer his whole career. Whether that has to do with his in-ring style or his reputation as a weed-smoker is up to you. It has never been a secret that he smokes, but now he has opened up about how it all started for him.

During his WWE Icons special, Rob Van Dam told the story of his first time smoking a joint while on tour in Jamaica. Here is the quote, courtesy of Fightful:

“It was actually 1991. I had a wrestling show in Jamaica. All the boys were so excited because the ganja was plentiful. I didn’t smoke it. I didn’t want to. But, we were all at a cabana and the boys were passing around a joint and I remember Jimmy Del Rey saying, ‘Here.’ I was like, ‘Oh. No thank you. I’m good.’ He’s like, ‘Hit it you Prima Donna it’s not going to kill you.’ I was like, oh. okay. I remember hitting it one time. Did not enjoy it. I remember staring at the wall and feeling more paranoid. ‘They’re going to say I’m stoned now. Why am I looking at the wall?’ That was my first experience.

I was noticing these athletes that I look up to that are in great shape, a lot of them smoke weed. That made me think maybe I should look into it. That opened up this whole new universe.”

Rob Van Dam was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year. It was also shown during the WWE Icons special that he gifted Vince McMahon some rolling papers at the event. McMahon found this quite funny.

Rob Van Dam has also started his own brand of CBD, which can be purchased at
