Rob Van Dam Talks AEW And WWE Potentially Working Together

Top IMPACT Wrestling Star and former WWE and ECW Star Rob Van Dam recently spoke with Pro Wrestling Junkies on a number of topics, including promotions working together and sharing talent.

According to Rob Van Dam, he thinks it is a super cool idea and it is great to interchange talent and help the other companies out, but a promotion such as the WWE should be careful with that as it could be considered as a step down. RVD also said that the WWE should just stay on the other side of the fence and keep doing their own thing.

This is what Rob Van Dam said:

“I think it’s super cool.” “Back in the territory days, they would do that. I think it’s great to interchange and help the other companies out. What makes it difficult from the industry standpoint is it’s hard to make a horizontal move. By that, I mean if you’re a promotion on TV that everyone is talking about and you work with a local promotion in, say Fort Wayne, Indiana, then what does that do for the big promotion? Probably nothing.”

“You have to be careful of that.” “WWE did something somewhat recently where Triple H showed up at some place in the UK, but it’s hard for [WWE] to do anything and it not being considered a step down. I think promotions that can help each other out both ways is super cool. I kinda think that WWE should just stay on the other side of the fence and keep doing their own thing.”

RVD then talked about possibly returning to the WWE in the future or even joining AEW. RVD also said that for the last several years his total in-ring time is probably just a couple of hours that he will just be so winded. RVD then said that he is going to be working with WWE on a couple of projects that haven’t been mentioned yet.

This is what Rob Van Dam said:

“I do watch them from time to time, mainly to help Katie out.” “I would consider anything as far as a contract goes, as long as everything made sense. It’s easy for people to think of RVD as just a wrestler, but that’s just something that I do. For the last several years, my total time in the ring is probably just a couple of hours – maybe 5,10,12 matches.”

“Since I’ve joined Impact, I’ve been wrestling a little more.” “I don’t really look at it as, ‘Oh man, I want to go here.’ To be honest I look at it as, ‘Man, I’m glad I get the night off’. I watch these guys all work their a–es off and I just think that I’d be so winded if I was out there. But I would consider their offers and I’m actually going to be working with WWE on a couple of projects that haven’t been mentioned yet.”
