Reader Matt sent the following: “On RVD radio, Van Dam has stated that he is going to be filming a movie with director David Defalco titled “Wrong Side of Town”. RVD stated that the film was written especially for him and that it will be an action movie. Filming is going to take place in February, putting live RVD radio shows on hiatus till March. Blog Talk Radio will however air “Best Of RVD Radio” until he returns from filming. One other note to RVD fans, I highly recommend checking out RVD Radio. He always has a plethora of guests such as: Sonya Van Dam, Sabu, Fonzie, Kid Cash, Gregory Helms, Booker T, Harry Slash (the ECW theme song writer) and many others. He also gives updates on his new projects and of course always has interesting topics that stimulate some great conversation.”
