– TNA star Rob Van Dam posted the following message on his official website over the weekend. Van Dam says he showed up to the airport on Saturday to fly to Orlando assuming he was booked for last night’s TNA Destination X pay-per-view:
Well, it sure is nice to hear people on the streets telling me they’re glad I’m back. For almost three years I’ve heard how much they “need” me back. Tonight when I go through the airport I’ll most likely hear “Dude, I’m so glad you’re back” and I’ll smile, thinking of these words that you and I have shared. It’s almost like we have an inside joke. Isn’t that special?
I guess I was a little too anxious to hear those words last night, as I was told at the airport that I was 24 hours early!
My bad. Thought I was booked or something.
I actually had several reasons to think I was expected at a pay per view from conversations earlier in the week, and the schedule they gave me, but it all boils down to me not paying attention. I simply didn’t know what the date was yesterday or I would’ve known I misunderstood plans. That’s what happens when you don’t worry about anything, and are so care free you don’t plan ahead.
Sometimes it bites you in the ass!
