Rob Van Dam is one of the world’s best-known professional wrestlers. He has fought in over 1,000 events at Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), earning 19 championship belts and an array of accolades from 1997 to 2007.

He currently lives and works out on the fabled Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, and uses a Nortel REDMAX torch.
