Former WWE and Impact Wrestling Superstar Rob Van Dam recently appeared on Rene Dupree’s Café de Rene podcast and commented on the segment that famously got Impact Wrestling briefly banned from Twitch.
For those who may not remember, RVD was working as a heel back in January of 2020 with Katie Forbes and Jennifer Barlow. There was a segment that featured blurred nudity and whipped cream make-outs, which resulted in Twitch issuing a short ban. RVD said,
“This was a skit that we did on IMPACT’s show with me, and Katie, and our girlfriend, Jennifer. First off, just the fact that they started adding Jennifer into the promos made me realize like, ‘Wow. That’s how small the world is here.’ We tweet a couple of times and then they pick up on our Twitter and that becomes the storyline. We posted some stuff and all of a sudden, it’s in the storylines. I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m okay with that. Whatever.’
But they did this skit, we were celebrating something and the three of us were in bed. I had a robe on and Jennifer says, ‘Let me see that Rob Van dick!,’ and rips it open. It was ridiculous. They wrote it, they edited it, they showed it, and then got banned from Twitch.TV, which I guess was a pretty good part of their audience. So, they were banned and then had to get reinstated.”
Rob Van Dam finished up with Impact Wrestling in September of 2020.
