More On Rob Van Dam’s WWE Return & Contract

Rob Van Dam has broken his silence since it was announced Sunday night at WWE Payback that he’ll be returning to WWE at next month’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view.

When asked by a fan about how he felt with his name trending on Twitter, Van Dam wrote, “Lots of expectations to live up to. Good thing I’m the Whole F’n Show.”

Additionally, a fan joked on Twitter that RVD is returning to WWE so he can take his ring gear back from Ryback, addressing the reaction from fans that Ryback’s ring attire is strikingly similar to that of Van Dam’s. RVD responded to that tweet by simply stating, “On my list…” implying Ryback is on his hit-list in WWE.

As noted earlier today here on the website, WWE, more specifically Triple H, reached out to Rob Van Dam about three weeks ago about making a return for the company. He had originally planned to work two or three independent wrestling dates but recently notified promoters that he would only be able to work one of those dates.

According to sources, Van Dam will be working a very reduced/part time schedule. This will include pay-per-view, TV and select house show events. The deal is also a short one for the time being. RVD is playing it smart as he knows the return angle will be big and then he wants to know exactly what WWE has planned for him following that before he agrees to sign an extension.

The company reportedly has a storyline in place for him and that will begin at the WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view on July 14th, 2013.

    Lol. Bob van Dam ain't shit. No surprise he thinks he's still 25 years old. Just as slow as Christian York these days.

  2. RavenNevermore says:

    I wish Christian York would go with him as well

    How did this turn into a 'hate on Christian York' comment section? He's shown some skill in his limited ring time, IMO. Being 8 years younger than RVD, I'd gladly take him over RVD at this point.

    • JoeWrestling says:

      But who's going to call Christian's moves now? Without Todd Keneley, Taz won't have a clue what a Mood Swing is.

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      My thoughts exactly. York isn't young by any means, but he does have talent. Just a shame he's not used better.

  4. Ultimate_X says:

    like him or not york has been a bit of a hit, he gets a decent pop and the tna fans love him…..same cannot be said for rvd!

    Bob lost his step a long time ago. It doesn’t mean he’s not better then 50% of the various Indy/Major talent out there. He’s just grown stale with his 5 moves. Those of us who have watched his whole career remember his REALLY high flying days. Better he go to mid-card “hell” with the E then be overpaid by TNA. As for York, I’m already tired of watching him lumber his way through matches. Partial responsibility belongs to York. The rest lies with TNA and the horrible way they’ve booked him. You can’t! book this guy like he’s an X wrestler. He’s a bruiser. Use him that way.
