RVD, renowned for his in-ring excellence and fearless maneuvers, is widely regarded as one of the all-time greats in professional wrestling. Over the past year, he has made appearances on AEW television. However, despite his involvement with AEW, RVD remains uncertain about his status within the promotion.

Most recently, RVD stepped into the ring on the February 21 episode of AEW Dynamite, teaming up with Hangman Adam Page and HOOK to take on Samoa Joe, Swerve Strickland, and Brian Cage.

In the latest episode of 1 Of A Kind With RVD, the WWE Hall of Famer discussed his status with AEW and the possibility of facing Will Ospreay. He expressed uncertainty about his future with AEW despite multiple appearances.

“Right now, I don’t know AEW, if anything…I don’t know what to expect. RVD-ology tells me not to have expectations. I’m 2-3 on my AEW so far.”


He went on to mention that if AEW wants to bring him in for fantasy matches or as a substitute for injured wrestlers, he’s open to it. He described himself as a “gun for hire” and appreciates his position in that regard.

Regarding a potential return, he mentioned Tony Khan’s positive feedback and expressed openness to future opportunities, but he remains unsure about any concrete plans.

“So if he wants to bring me in just to give the kids these fantasy matches, then hey, it’s not a bad position to be in, to be able to do that.”

“If he wants to just bring me in when he’s got wrestlers that are injured and needs someone to step in, it’s still not a bad position to be in.”

“I’m a gun for hire, and I like my position in that. If he wants to do something more, then I certainly don’t know about it right now.”

“But he always says that he loves working with me. He being Tony, and he’s a great guy and always says he wants to do it again. So I don’t know,”

RVD previously admitted that WWE made him feel expendable, unlike AEW. Nevertheless, we will have to wait and see how many more appearances RVD will make, as he is set for an appearance on the April 20th edition of AEW Collision.

Do you feel AEW should sign RVD eventually or should he remain on a per-appearance deal? Let us know in the comments section below!
