Rob Van Dam rules out a return to the WWE anytime soon

Published 2 Comments

Former WWE Superstar Rob Van Dam has ruled out a return to the company at any point in the near future because he doesn't feel it will be worth it.

One of a Kind

The former WWE Champion spoke to GrueMonkey.com recently, according to WrestlingNews, about having one more run with the company he used to work for. However, RVD has dismissed the possibility happening anytime soon, but he does have an open door policy with WWE, meaning he can come and go as he pleases.

He said: "That’s mostly just talk. I did a Q&A at Legend Fan Fest and expressed that I have an Open Door policy with WWE. You won't see me with TNA, Global or any other organization. It will breach our deal. I have a merchandise deal with the WWE and right now, I’m too on the go.

"I have no reason to do a run right now. Honestly, it’s better not to. I explained during the Q&A that I don’t see that changing in the future. Physically, I feel great. I’ve always said, I’m unique in that way.

"People say wrestling wears you down, but no one thinks I just don’t want to. I can do the same as I did 20 years ago. Who knows, maybe someone threw it out there for reaction and the internet has had its fun with it."

The fact RVD said he can do the same things he was able to do 20 years ago makes me excited for any possible return. The five-star frog splash is one of my favorite finishers and it would be great to see it again in the WWE ring soon.

The last time he was in the WWE was back in 2014, where the last pay-per-view he was involved in (in a non-dark match) was Money in the Bank. He was in the Money in the Bank ladder match which was eventually won by the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, thanks to the assistance of Kane.

The former ECW star man held many championships during his time in the WWE, including the tag team, Intercontinental, European, Hardcore, and the WWE Championship. He was also the eighth Grand Slam Champion, the sixteenth Triple Crown Champion, and won the Money in the Bank briefcase back in 2006.

If he was to return for one more match, RVD has the ability to make anyone look good in the ring, so the choices are limitless. But one person I would like to see him face is Neville. These two could put on an amazing high-flying show with their acrobatics and top-rope antics.

Here's hoping RVD is a surprise entrant at the Royal Rumble event in January next year! He's 'One of a Kind!'
