RVD surprised fans when he finally made his AEW debut this week. He stood up to Jack Perry, and this was a big moment for AEW. It was also a moment that made an old tweet from RVD age like milk.
On AEW Dynamite this week, Jerry Lynn and Jack Perry had another segment on Dynamite, one that was promoted as a showdown. Then someone else joined the party.
Jerry Lynn brought some company. He introduced Rob Van Dam, who made a grand entrance to take on Jungle Boy Jack Perry. When RVD made his debut on AEW Dynamite, an old tweet from the Whole F’n Show resurfaced. Needless to say, things picked up after fans were reminded of that old tweet.
People who think their opinions are facts are really ignorant. According to my values- which are the only ones that matter to me-Impact is way better than whatever else you’re marking out on. Most of those All Petite cuts don’t even look like professional wrestlers
Tony Khan pulled out all the stops, paying for RVD’s appearance and his classic “Walk” entrance music. Although RVD didn’t engage in physical action with Jack Perry, his presence left a lasting impression. It remains to be seen how long Rob Van Dam will remain associated with AEW and what this encounter means for the future storyline.
There was report today that AEW is booking RVD for All In London. It appears that he will face Jack Perry next week on AEW Dynamite with the FTW Title on the line. Only time will tell what he does there.
