Rob Van Dam Suspended By WWE - Updated!
Seems that Rob Van Dam has been suspended by WWE
for 30 days, instead of being fired for his arrest this Sunday. After
being more or less "stripped" of both the WWE Championship and the ECW Championship during Monday and Tuesday, Paul Heyman promptly "suspended" RVD.
Or so the storyline goes, as Van Dam was suspended because of what
happened this weekend. So, while any ordinary superstar would have been
fired immediately, it seems that RVD will escape with a mere
suspension. Or maybe there will be further ramification somewhere down
the line, this may be just the tip of the iceberg until WWE's
"investigation" comes to a conclusion.
Nothing has at the time of writing been mentioned as to what will happen to Sabu.

Moments after screwing Rob Van Dam out of the ECW Championship, Paul Heyman gave the following statement to ECW.com:
“As of this moment, Rob Van Dam has been suspended for 30 days.”
approached Heyman immediately as he came backstage following the match
to ask him why he screwed Van Dam. Heyman only smiled and offered the
above statement. I followed him to ask him why RVD was suspended and
why he was screwed out of the ECW Championship…but he only walked
faster. When I finally got to his office door, Heyman slammed the door
in my face.
what should have been RVD’s holiday weekend homecoming went from bad to
worse to downright horrible. On Monday morning, everything seemed cool
as RVD walked into the Wachovia Center as both the ECW and WWE
Champion; Tuesday night, however, he left the building with no gold and
no job for a month.
losing the WWE Championship to Edge in a Triple Threat Match on RAW,
RVD also lost his ECW Championship to Big Show live on ECW on Sci Fi
Tuesday night. With the referee down, Van Dam seemingly had the match
won after a Five-Star Frog Splash. Paul Heyman went to count the
pinfall like he did at One Night Stand…but before he got to three,
Heyman stopped and stared at RVD.
Dam looked like he had just lost his best friend, and as he and Heyman
did some jaw jacking, Big Show recovered. He spun Rob around and nailed
him with a chair, and after a vicious chokeslam on that same chair, ECW
had a new champion.
And now, with the suspension levied by Heyman, it looks like RVD won’t have a chance to right the wrong he has been handed."
WWE.Com have now updated their article on RVD and Sabu, now stating
that Van Dam will be enduring his 30 day suspension WITHOUT pay.
In addition to this, they are also stating that Sabu has been fined
$1000 for his behaviour, which they claim are "consistent with the
Wellness Policy at WWE".
