Any questions as to why RVD has never held the world title are erased with this attitude. "That's what sets us apart from the rest of the locker room"? Threatening to subvert the script if Heyman tells him to?
The respect for Heyman is evident and admirable, but he's forgetting who pays his bills and who has paid his bills for a long time. He definitely could have made the same point -- that an ECW PPV should *be* and ECW PPV -- without the attitude. No wonder he's always finding himself in the doghouse and never got a world title run.

The attitude (at least in public interviews, don't know about in the locker room) came out *after* it was clear he'd never get a run on top. I have a hard time imagining RVD saying the things he's said had he either: a) been a world title holder, or b) been in line for such a push. As it is, he'll never be allowed a run on top, so this is his way of venting his frustrations.

He does have a bit of a point. The invasion angle they have going is going overboard, and itís pulling the spotlight away from the actual ECW guys. When you have Nunzio called out to represent ECW and get squashed, how does that make the ECW product look like itís worth buying a PPV for?
