Rob Van Dam hopes for a WWE return someday

Rob Van Dam’s last run through WWE was filled with creative laziness that included his somehow teaming up with Ricardo Rodriguez, of all people. Don’t worry, it didn’t make sense then either. He’s since made clear he would only return under the right circumstances.

It’s been a couple years but he’s still holding out hope for another shot at it, as he told Sports Illustrated in a recent interview:

"I have an open door with WWE as far as wrestling goes. I also have an ongoing merchandise relationship. I hope that the right opportunity presents itself so that I will do another run with WWE. For me, the fans missing me and wanting to see me on TV is very important, but the business end of it also has to be right. I certainly hope that comes together, and it will be something that is right for me and right for WWE and right for the fans. But at this point, I do not have any plans of such. Even when I'm not wrestling, I still appreciate all my fans. I take all the compliments to heart. I don't think all the other wrestlers hear the same love from the fans that I do—they are extreme about it."

Considering the brand split, one would think there’s room for RVD somewhere. Then again, the company is getting along just fine without him and bringing him back may cost more than it’s worth.

Would you want to see him back on WWE television again?
