This week on AEW Collision, it was announced that WWE Hall Of Famer and former WWE Champion Rob Van Dam will be returning to the company for a match next week. There is no word on whom Van Dam will be facing. Van Dam previously appeared in AEW in August, where he confronted and then lost to Jack Perry. He has speculated that the match cost him a WrestleMania Weekend appearance with WWE, thought his has not been confirmed.

Opinion: I’ve heard worse ideas than having Van Dam around as the fans are going to react to him and it wasn’t like his match with Perry was bad. That being said, he is 52 years old and doesn’t wrestle full time anymore. That could lead to some diminishing returns in a hurry, so it might be better if this is another one off match rather than the start of another full time gig.
What do you think of the idea? How can Van Dam be best use din AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
