Rob Van Dam comments on one of the things that annoys him about modern wrestling

During his podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Rob Van Dam was watching one of his matches and said the following in regards to kick outs in wrestling…

“You know what I hate now is when people don’t kick out. Every time I watch wrestling, I see it. They think just by kicking their feet that they kick out. But their shoulders are still down, and the person’s still on top of them. I hate that. It’s one of those things that annoys me when I watch wrestling. I always tell whoever’s next to me, ‘They were still pinned. Their shoulders were still down.’ They just kick their feet. Kicking your feet don’t do nothing.”

“Then every once in a while, like when I was in WWE, they’d say the referee is the credibility. So from now on, you count them down if they don’t kick out.’ They haven’t done that in a while, and they need to. Credibility, they haven’t done a credibility check in years, and it used to be cycled all the time when I was there. But I guess it doesn’t matter anymore, I don’t know.” (quotes courtesy of Colin Tessier)
