Rob Van Dam's 10 greatest rivalries

#9 The Eliminators

Though he’s now celebrated as a groundbreaking singles competitor, some of Rob Van Dam’s most impressive early successes in ECW came in the organization’s tag team division alongside his fellow hardcore revolutionary, Sabu. Managed by whistle-blower Bill Alfonso, the duo’s whatever-it-takes offense  proved valuable against some of ECW’s most formidable tag teams, including The Dudley Boyz, Tommy Dreamer & Sandman and, most notably, The Eliminators.

It was against this pairing of Kronus & Perry Saturn that the team of RVD & Sabu truly turned heads, with collisions that would become recognized as the precursors to WWE’s modern-day nightmare known as the Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match.

After a series of brutal matches against Kronus & Saturn, RVD & Sabu eventually became two-time ECW Tag Team Champions with victories over The Dudley Boyz and Lance Storm & Chris Candido. However, not even the combined chaos of Van Dam & Sabu could unseat The Eliminators — and that’s saying something.
