Rob Van Dam Talks WWE Schedule, Power of the WWE Brand & More

Posted by Steve Carrier on Thursday, June 20th, 2013

RVD

As noted earlier, Rob Van Dam was interviewed by VOC Nation Radio. Here are a few more highlights from the interview.

Nature of his current deal with WWE: “It’s definitely not a couple of appearances and I’m gone.”

WWE schedule: “I’m definitely not interested in a full time schedule. I asked WWE before I left if there was anything for me part time (like TNA had offered), and they wanted me back but they wanted me full time.”

WWE changing their thoughts on wrestlers working mandatory full time schedules: “Now things have changed; there’s different people in the office there that are more sympathetic and understanding to the road life combined with the wrestling career. They came around; this is going to be awesome. There is a lot of excitement.”

The way that his signing impacted the industry: “There are a lot of moves that can be done in the ring to pop the crowd; there’s not a lot of things that can be done to pop the industry – - guess what I did? BOOM!”

The power of the WWE brand: “A lot of people didn’t notice a lot of what I did over the last 3 years. With one 48 second video, WWE made RVD more relevant than he had been in the past several years. A lot of fans don’t watch (TNA). People were asking me if I retired, and I felt like a constant ambassador telling people to watch TNA to see me.”
