Katie Forbes and Rob Van Dam tie the knot in Las Vegas on Thursday in a private ceremony. Recently released WWE talents, Karrion Kross and Scarlett, were of few in attendants. Later, they took to Twitter to congratulate the couple while sharing a few candid moments from the elaborate ceremony.
RVD and Forbes have been dating since 2016, announcing their engagement to the wrestling world in February of this year. RVD was also inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year and can now add being a married man to that list of accomplishments. During the Hall of Fame ceremony, RVD thanks the WWE Universe and his wife for love and support throughout the years.
RVD is noted as an ECW legend, shaking up WWE with his high-flying moves and will to win with whatever it takes. His win at ECW One Night Stand over former WWE Champion, John Cena, made him the first and only wrestler to hold the ECW Championship and WWE Championship. Forbes began her wrestling career in 2015 and spent time most of her time in Impact Wrestling. She faced current Digital Media Champion, Jordynee Grace, and Knockouts longest reigning champion, Taya Valkyrie.
The couple made quite the Impact themselves in 2019 anytime they graced our presence in and out of the ring. In 2020, The Queen of Twerk appeared in the Impact Zone with RVD as his valet during his feud with former Impact World Champion Sami Callahan. Later that year, the couple left Impact Wrestling after their storyline, focusing on their relationship outside of the ring.
Here at Women’s Wrestling Talk, we would like to congratulate the newlyweds and best wishes to come.
