Rob Van Dam is a veteran in the professional wrestling world and his body has gone through a lot of wear and tear over the years. He has suffered injuries during his career as well. While his 5 Star Frog Splash continues to amaze crowds, it can still cause injuries.
RVD spoke to the Pro Wrestling Junkies, where he talked about his WWE career. He then discussed his more recent matches. He focused on his patented 5 Star Frog Splash and revealed that it is not 100% safe. He said the move is inconsistent and he has bruised his ribs on many occasions performing the move.
He recently hit the finishing maneuver on Tommy Dreamer. However, he was far away and RVD was off by a couple of inches and his face hit Dreamer’s shoulder instead. RVD suffered a concussion and Tommy’s arm turned purple and required therapy on it afterwards.
The 49-year-old wrestler is not as active as he used to be so it makes sense he takes his time to heal up before each match.
