While “never say never” is a common phrase uttered by many former WWE superstars these days, RVD claimed that the later months of the year is the worst travel time of the year regarding the weather. Obviously, WWE is going all over the work every day, so why put up with ten feet of snow in Colorado if you’re on a part-time status.
Van Dam did add that if he were to return for Wrestlemania, he would have to be on WWE television beforehand to build to the extravaganza. RVD ultimately needs to make the decision if the travel and weather are worth it to make an appearance in Dallas for Wrestlemania 32.
Rob Van Dam’s last run in WWE was back in 2014 when he would be involved in the Intercontinental Championship hunt, have many matches with Seth Rollins and present the Slammy Award for Extreme Moment of the Year. That award was the last time RVD was featured on WWE programming.
There is said to be no tension and as of this writing, there are no negotiations to bring back RVD to WWE towards Wrestlemania 32 or otherwise.
Below is a tweet from Rob Van Dam himself providing a link to the Periscope interview.
