RVD has forged a path in the pro wrestling world, unique to his own story. The Whole F’n Show also picked up big titles in just about ever company he ever ventured into as well. Now, at 52-years-old, he knows that there is still a lot of gas left in his tank.
RVD is a WWE Hall of Famer, and he’s beloved by the company. After an appearance at the WWE Draft this year went so well, it is apparent that he is game to take on any role they have for him.
While speaking on his 1 of Kind podcast, RVD said that he doesn’t foresee any retirement in his future. At this point in his career, although he isn’t wrestling full-time anymore, he is still doing what he can.
“I used to think I was going to retire a few years ago. I haven’t put a lot of thought into it. I just kind of figured semi-retired and I would probably just not pick up bookings anymore eventually or whatever, but now I don’t think I ever will. Why bother?
“I’ll probably be like Dory Funk Jr and just never retire. As much as I pride myself on being genuine and honest and I like to set an example by the way I live, I wouldn’t want to retire and then come back two years later and wrestle again like everybody does, but I don’t know that I would miss it and that’s why I thought it would be easy to do before because people always ask, ‘Do you miss it?’ ‘No.’ I’m still doing it. “
“Maybe if I didn’t do it and I knew I wasn’t going to do it again, for sure I would have a different perspective, whatever it is, but instead, it’s the opposite. I have one match coming up for sure. I might have three before then that are on the developmental table, let’s say. Let’s see what happens there. That’s my thoughts on retirement, anyway.”
RVD has a ton of fans in WWE, and plenty of them would love to see him have another run in the company. If people like Edge and Trish Stratus have told us anything, it’s that you can never say never about another return run with WWE.
WWE has a few legends and Hall of Famers who would like to come back. RVD seems game to do just about anything they need at this point in his career. How would you use RVD? Sound off in the comments to let us know what you’re thinking!
