Sep 08, 2009 -- This Friday, September 11 2009 on Ringside, in our first new-look episode (and, coincidentally, our second anniversary), Ian Hamilton and Adam Firestorm are joined by a man who needs no introduction, but will get one anyway: Rob Van Dam.

A few days ahead of a two-date run in Portimao, Portugal with the World Stars of Wrestling promotion, RVD talks about his latest tour of Europe, as well as a look back to his long career in ECW and WWE, how fans still continue to react to him today and whether he would consider a return to a full-time schedule.

We also ask Rob about his time with the Nu Wrestling Evolution, and his experiences of helping train the Ultimate Warrior for his comeback match last year. Rob also tells us about how much (or little) wrestling he watches nowadays, before we wrap up with a quick game of word association featuring some of RVD’s former bosses.

Also on the show, we’ll run through the week’s news from the worlds of pro wrestling and MMA, preview Sunday’s Breaking Point pay-per-view, review the Dragon Gate USA pay-per-view, and give you a head’s up on upcoming live events with the Ringside Event Center!
