RVD recently left Impact Wrestling after his contract expired. He was working on short-term deals, but now his time is done. Rob Van Dam is a free agent once again.
The Dropkick Podcast recently spoke to RVD where the WWE Hall Of Fame came up in the conversation. Rob Van Dam said that there’s only one person he would want to induct him: Paul Heyman.
When it comes to whether he will get an induction, the Whole F’n Show can see reasons why it will and won’t happen. He does have a history in WWE, but he also spent time working for the competition.
“I think the obvious answer is probably Paul [Heyman], and I think that’s definitely the right person.”
“I can definitely see it happening, but knowing how things work, I could also see it not happening, or not happening for a long time anyway. I used to think – and I’m still not sure, but do you have to retire in order to be in the Hall of Fame? And the fact that I’ve been wrestling for Impact, that’s got to be a factor too. They don’t want to do too much with somebody. But, who knows? Of course it’d be an honor, and we’ll see.”
Impact Wrestling and WWE don’t seem to be in the war that AEW is with Vince McMahon’s company. WWE even worked out a deal in the past to show Impact footage in their documentary specials.
We’ll have to see if RVD ends up in the WWE Hall Of Fame. It makes a lot of sense and if he can stay out of AEW those chances will obvious remain much better.
