WWE Hall of Famer Rob Van Dam has revealed that he had to grab the back of former WWE star Sunny for an advertisement.
RVD was Paul Heyman’s ECW top star in the late ’90s. He went up against all sorts of top stars in the company and also participated in weird promotions.
Chris Candido joined ECW in 1996 after a brief stint in WWE. His longtime girlfriend Sunny started working with him after she was launched by WWE in 1998.
Rob Van Dam opens up about this issue
While talking in an episode of Unique podcasts, RVD recalled filming a behind-the-scenes segment with Candido and Sunny in ECW. In the trailer, RVD had to grab Sunny’s back and ended up grabbing it very hard after an unsuccessful attempt.
“At ECW, there was a time when I suddenly remembered that we were doing a commercial where I was walking in the building and they were walking out or vice versa and we were walking past each other, carrying the car. little wheelie bag or whatever and when they walked past me, they wanted me to grab Tammy’s ass. That’s the deal. And Chris got mad and then we had a few words or whatever, ‘we’re going to deal with this in the ring tonight.’ You know, one of those things. And like I just thought you know, I’m going to work and the camera won’t know anything and we walk past and I just pat her on the butt.
And we did that and they were like ‘cut’. Anyway, Tammy came but she said, ‘I can’t even feel it. I can’t even feel his hand on my butt. Look, it’s like grabbing it, you know, squeezing it.’ And I was like, ‘you know, she always wants me to pay her up front and I never do and so this is an opportunity to, you know, I get it.’ But like Sandman told me to lie down the first time I kicked him, I wanted to try to make her regret it. I walk past them and I just ughh and I just squeeze it as hard as I can, deep, hard, like ughhhh, like so hard until they turn around and, ‘oh,’ she screams, should’ve it had to be and then Chris went on with the commercial and I never spoke to her about it after that.
