On the weekend where a documentary on his life will be released, former WWE, ECW and Impact Wrestling star Rob Van Dam kicked off the festivities by getting married to longtime fiance Katie Forbes Thursday in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The two have been together since 2016 and got engaged earlier this year. The 30-year-old Forbes, also a wrestler, appeared with Van Dam during his latest run in Impact.

Former WWE female wrestler Candice Michelle presided over the ceremony.

This is the second marriage for the 50-year-old Van Dam (real name Robert Szatkowski). Diamond Dallas Page, Luke Hawx and Chris Bey were a few of the wrestling talents that attended.

In a clip from the Headstrong documentary, Van Dam revealed that he has been diagnosed with CTE due to his 30-year run in the business. It debuts on Reelz Saturday at 8 PM Eastern.

Van Dam was inducted into the WWE Hall-of-Fame this past March following a prominent run in ECW and a six-year run in WWE that began in 2001. During that span, he won the WWE Championship once, the Intercontinental title six times, the Hardcore title four times, the World Tag Team titles twice, the WWE Tag Team titles once, the European title once, and the revived ECW title once. He is the fifteenth triple crown champion and seventh grand slam champion in WWE history.
