The Coach was shown with Rob Van Dam and in just moments, he'll step into the ring with Ric Flair. A man that a month ago nailed him with a sledgehammer and cost him a shot at the World Championship. Rob said that Ric Flair is a 16 time World Champion. He styles, profiles and is a limousine riding, jet flyin', kiss stealin', wheelin', dealin', son of a gun! As for RVD, he doesn't style or profile. Limos? He doesn't need them. You can catch him driving himself. Jets? He flies commercial and quite often gets stuck in coach or even in the middle seat sometimes.
