* {{Contortionist}}: You almost have to be to even attempt to use the Van Dam press he invented (lifting a dumbbell while doing a slip between two benches). One of his quirks as a wrestler is being able to counter virtually anything that does not have him in a seated position with a kick, and sometimes not even sitting him down can stop Van Dam from kicking you.

* BrilliantButLazy: The most frequent complaint leveled at RVD by the IWC, who most find to be a great performer when he puts forth his best effort, but has been called out for not evolving his ring style, personality, or skill on the mic.

* OneManArmy: After Wrestling/EricBischoff lured all the TNA Champions into a trap before ''Genesis 2011'', RVD ended up saving them by fighting off all of Immortal by himself.

* [[Awesome/ProfessionalWrestling Crowning Moment of Awesome]]: His aforementioned nearly-two-year-long ECW World Television Championship reign.
** At ''ECW One Night Stand'' 2006, he defeated JohnCena to capture the WWE Championship. The next day, he was awarded the ECW World Heavyweight Championship, making him the first ECW Champion since ECW's closure in 2001 - and the only man to hold the WWE Championship and the ECW Championship simultaneously.
** This victory is notable for being the only time that Mr. Money in the Bank won a world championship in a pre-booked match rather than running in and cashing it on an already beaten champion.
