Rob Van Dam has been mentioned as one of the names that could announce his return to WWE. The departure of Vince McMahon could be the reason for this. However, in a conversation with Cafe de Rene, Van Dam believes that the new leaders of WWE are no better than Vince McMahon.
“Do I like that Vince is no longer with WWE? No. I personally don’t think there’s anything in it for me because Vince was a friend and there’s no reason for me to believe at this point that the current guy that’s running things has any more interest in me than Vince did.
For those reasons, just from my selfish perspective, I think [it was] better for me when Vince was there”. - he said, as quoted by pwmania.com
Rob Van Dam and WWE
Van Dam is a huge fan of WWE and his time there. “When they’re in town, I don’t even know who to visit.
If they were in Vegas, if I stopped by normally it would have been to see Vince, maybe Booker [T], maybe Paul [Heyman] if they were there, maybe even Johnny Laurinaitis, not so much that I would go there just to say hi to him because he’s political like everyone else”.
Rob Van Dam and Vince McMahon In an interview with NBC Sports, Rob Van Dam spoke about Vince McMahon, for whom he had great respect. “John Laurinaitis being gone, he was my guy. I know a lot of people didn’t get along with him.
I was wrestling him in Japan in ‘93, so I’ve known him since then and I could relate to him in a lot of ways when I was there before. “I don’t like Vince being gone, but if it’s better for business, then that’s awesome.
I know that a lot of people don’t feel the way that I do about it. I feel more like I probably lost one of the only people I could imagine stopping by and wanting to say hello to there.
