WWE Hall of Famer Rob Van Dam made his All Elite Wrestling debut earlier this month and wasted no time in confronting FTW Champion "Jungle" Jack Perry on behalf of his friend Jerry Lynn.
The ECW legend set out to teach Perry a lesson during last week's AEW Dynamite, but he was ultimately unable to overcome the wily heel. Until now, it's been unclear whether there are plans for him to return to the company, though some WWE fans have criticised RVD for daring to wrestle for the Tony Khan-owned promotion.
Well, he's now responded on Twitter to say, "Some fans are saying I did WWE wrong by appearing on AEW. I wonder if they would all eat sh*t if I revealed that I had permission to do it? Or would they just move on to puke out the next meaningless bullshi*t that comes out of their mouths?"
"Yeah, I figured," Van Dam concluded. "I’ll keep it to myself for now."
During a later edition of his podcast, 1 Of A Kind With RVD, the former WWE Champion was asked whether Khan has asked him to return (there was originally speculation that his match with Perry might take place at All In in London's Wembley Stadium).
"Was it talked about between me and Tony about me coming back? Yeah," RVD confirmed. "The details of that conversation, we’ll have to wait and see."
WWE clearly doesn't have an issue with RVD working for AEW, likely because they have no immediate plans to use him. That match proved he can still put on a great show, and we'd definitely rather see the ECW legend in AEW than nowhere at all.
Stay tuned for updates as we have them.
