Rob Van Dam has no plans to wrestle full time

One of the most important names of the old ECW, or the extreme company of Philadelphia, built and carried on by the well-known Paul Heyman, when the latter was also the manager of Extreme Championship Wrestling, is undoubtedly Rob Van Dam, historical athlete of the company, who has also been world champion several times.

After the closure of the ECW, RVD moved to the WWE rings of McMahon, with which he managed to win important titles and honors, including the WWE title, when the McMahon-owned company decided to revive ECW as the third brand of the federation.

In that moment, in fact, RVD won both the WWE champion title and the ECW champion title, with the brand going to die after only a few years. After a brief stint also in the IMPACT Wrestling rings, the athlete appears to have withdrawn in part from in-ring activities at the moment, with journalists continuing to press RVD on what his future choice will be, but lately have only received negative feedback.

Update on Rob Van Dam

In his last speech to the microphones of the Cafe de Rene, in the company of the other former WWE, Rene Dupree, Rob Van Dam wanted to rule out his return to the big companies of North America, saying: "I'm not sure if I was talking about WWE or AEW, but the answer is the same for both of them.

None. I am not in dialogue with anyone of significance. I keep working occasionally, I keep wrestling, you know, indies stuff now and rarely, even someone who can offer RVD something to do some overseas indies runs... The only thing I think at the moment is that I don't know how long it will take to see me appear on TV again, not being a real return to a permanent basis - I don't know, I haven't talked about that yet.

Well, surely they will see me on TV with Rawtopsy. Everyone will see him because he is talking about one of our brothers. But the schedule is slated for next spring or so. I still have a lot of plans going on right now, but I can't tell you where you can see me, which wrestling show, because I don't have any plans to do that right now."

Rob Van Dam was under contract to IMPACT Wrestling back in July 2019 when he made a surprise appearance on WWE RAW. While IMPACT wasn't name-dropped at the time, it was still a rare and significant moment. With the Royal Rumble right around the corner, the 30-man match will certainly have some surprises.

Even though he doesn't want to work full-time, RVD would be a great choice as a surprise entrant for this year's Royal Rumble match.
