Vince McMahon has put his family in some odd stories throughout the history of his rulership over WWE. Who could forget most of them? Who would want to remember a lot of them either?

Rob Van Dam recently spoke to the Dropkick Podcast and gave them the scoop on who the secret superstar was that would have shared this love on-screen.
RVD: “Something that comes to mind is when I first got there they wanted me to do a bit of a romance angle with Stephanie and myself. My evil ex was like the most insecure b*tch on the planet and I was like thinking ‘oh my god this gonna cause me so much grief at home’. I was like ‘no’. We had a talk, me and Stephanie, and she said you know just think of this like you’re an actor.”
The proposed angle never happened. Instead, RVD would feud with Jeff Hardy for the Hardcore Title over the summer. Van Dam was part of the Alliance team in the ‘Winner Take All’ ten-man tag match at Survivor Series 2001.
