Tommy Dreamer Talks RVD's WWE Return, Retiring, House Of Hardcore

ECW original and hardcore wrestling legend Tommy Dreamer was recently interviewed by Between The Ropes radio. Below are highlights from the interview.

Dreamer on retirement: “Yeah, some days. I recently hurt my neck really, really bad again and I had already broken my neck. It was just on an indie show and I came to the back and I was like ‘man, I’m hurt’. And I don’t want to be hurt in my life. I live pretty much – miraculously – pain-free and I don’t want to have a lesser quality of life. Wrestling takes a toll and I’ve destroyed my body already. I’ve broken so many bones. I’ve broke my neck, I broke my bad and I’ve yet to have a surgery and I’m still going. I want to be able to pick up my kids. I want to enjoy life and not always be in pain.”

Dreamer on Rob Van Dam: “Yep, I totally said that to myself the other day thinking this will probably be the last time I get to wrestle Rob. I love Rob. We’re great friends. I’m happy that Rob’s coming back (to WWE). I know I’m going to kicked really, really hard and I know I’ll be hitting him back really hard and in the end we’re going to really hug each other and just really, really take it back. I know for me it will be something really special.”

Dreamer on House Of Hardcore: “I never had gray hair in my beard until I worked in the WWE office and I call them my WWE’s. Then I started losing more hair when I, I don’t want to say I went out on my own, I started losing more hair when I did my first show and now I have more gray hair on the side of my head. If nothing else, I will definitely get a Just for Men bears and hair sponsorship out of this because I don’t like the salt and pepper look. I have very high expectations. I’m so wanting to up main events, up who I’m going to bring in.”
