TODAY IN PRO WRESTLING HISTORY… MAY 12th: RVD becomes Mr. Monday Night

DATELINE: MAY 12, 1997 – NEWARK, DE


On Raw is War, Rob Van Dam makes his WWF debut with a win over Jeff Hardy.

Van Dam wasn’t signed to WWF at the time, and was actually still a performer for Extreme Championship Wrestling. RVD’s appearance would coincide with an angle where ECW wrestlers had ‘invaded’ the World Wrestling Federation.
