Rob Van Dam Suffers Botch In WWE Draft Photo

WWE Hall of Famer Rob Van Dam recently made his return to the company during the 2023 Draft that kicked off on SmackDown. It seems he made a blunder.



The Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa being the #1 picks. The show also featured the return of Rob Van Dam (RVD), who came to announce round 2 of Draft picks.

It seems that he made a mistake. The Draft sticker from the card which he was reading was upside down.

RVD is one of the most popular wrestlers of all time. The high-flyer joined the Stamford-based promotion in 2001 after ECW was shut down. His first stint with the company lasted nearly six years, after which he returned to the Independent Circuit. However, he again returned to WWE in 2013 for a short stint.

He has also made sporadic appearances since leaving the company for the second time in 2014, with the latest one coming at the Hall of Fame last year. The veteran returned on SmackDown to announce the round 2 picks for the 2023 Draft.

Meanwhile, The Usos had challenged Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in a losing effort.

During the match, the former Universal Champion brought himself some time but sent Jimmy Uso face-first into the turnbuckle. Jey tagged in just as Owens tagged out, with Sami Zayn being all over both Usos, sending them crashing to ringside. KO then hit a Fisherman Buster off the top rope, headed back up and delivered a Swanton Bomb.

WWE fans got a backstage cut as Paul Heyman received a call from The Tribal Chief. He then ominously turned to Sikoa and said, “Tonight is your night.”  Sikoa also tried to interfere during the match but Matt Riddle came to the aid of KO and Sami.

The final moments of the match saw Sami hitting the Helluva Kick on Jimmy for the pinfall win & title retention.

The two-night 2023 WWE Draft will continue on Monday Night Raw on May 1. On Monday, all eyes will be on Jey Uso and Jimmy Uso as it remains to be seen where The Usos will get drafted in.
