Katie Forbes recently married WWE Hall of Famer Rob Van Dam. The two worked together in Impact Wrestling, but left the company together in 2020. Since then, the former Knockout has been weighing her options.

A return to professional wrestling might be on the horizon. Katie talked to XeniadidThat, where she mused about her future prospects. She said she’d love to go to WWE, but she might be too inappropriate for the family-friendly promotion.

“Yes, that’s what I want to do. I do. On Impact Wrestling I had the highest amount of views out of everybody on YouTube. So I was like, ‘Katie equals clicks.’ But I might be a little too inappropriate for WWE right now. That’s what I am scared of. But I don’t know, I’m scandalous, that’s just me.”

Forbes also talked about her thoughts on All Elite Wrestling. She says it’s easier to get fans involved because of the way they tell their stories. The uncertainty at WWE with regards to job security doesn’t impress her, either.


“I’ve heard that in AEW that they have longer storylines so that the fans can get more involved in it. WWE seems like it’s at a changing point right now the way they are doing so many layoffs. It’s hard for the fans to even get attached to a storyline or get attached to a character. Because their favorite is doing good and then getting squashed or they’re doing good and then getting released all of a sudden. They’re like, ‘damn, I can’t even get invested in these people,’ because the turnaround is so quick.”

Katie Forbes and Rob Van Dam were placed together on-screen during their most recent Impact run. She’s an experienced wrestler with a great history of facing top talent on the independent circuit. It may be a matter of time before a larger company comes calling, but Katie doesn’t think it’ll be WWE.
