During a recent interview with Pro Wrestling Junkies, former WWE Champion and Impact Wrestling star Rob Van Dam revealed that he is in the process of working on some projects with Vince McMahon’s company:
The ECW icon noted during the interview that he’s “actually going to be working with WWE on a couple of projects” that haven’t even been announced as of right now:
“Since I joined IMPACT, I’ve been wrestling a little bit more but, I don’t look at it and think, ‘Woah! I wanna go here.’ Usually I look at it and I’m like, ‘Man I’m glad tonight’s a night off.’ I’m watching these guys work their asses off in the ring and I’m just thinking, ‘Ah, I’d be so winded right now’ and I’m watching everything come together and it’s cool that it is but, it would just be a job offering and nothing else at that point, you know?
“So, that’s how I’ve been since like 2001, I guess, since then, so some people say, ‘You should go to AEW because you and this guy would have a good match.’ Like dude, I don’t give a f*ck. I have good matches with everybody. I definitely would consider it and I’m actually going to be working with WWE on a couple of projects that we haven’t mentioned yet.”
At this time, there is no word on what these projects that Rob Van Dam and WWE are working together are concerning, but some have speculated that they could be linked to a new WWE Network documentary.
As RVD noted, he is currently under contract with Impact Wrestling, so he won’t be able to return to WWE as an in-ring talent, but it seems like he’s going to be working with the company in another capacity.
