WWE Hall of Famer Rob Van Dam has spoken about whether he’d ever join All Elite Wrestling (AEW), and he doesn’t seem particularly eager.
Speaking with ReelTalker, Van Dam explained the only thing that would interest him about going to AEW would be “business”, which is another way of saying ‘money’.
“I just always go with the flow of the universe. I’m always very happy with the way things turn out. AEW, I watch it sometimes, mostly to help Katie Forbes out. She’ll watch it, she’s up-and-coming, learning and I’ll point stuff out. There is nothing that interests me about going there, except for business.
“There is nothing that makes me want to wrestle, except for business. Where a fan thinks maybe I would watch TV and dream of getting in the ring with someone, as if that’s my fantasy. That’s not really the way life works, at least not for me. It’s likely that I could be done now (wrestling) and not know it.
“I’d be totally fine (never getting back in the ring), then the non-wrestling RVD would reap the rewards that come from the universe from reaching this stage. I don’t miss it like the other wrestlers. I’m not hungry to be in the ring.”
Rob Van Dam is a member of the 2021 WWE Hall of Fame class and the ceremony will air this coming Tuesday on April 6.
