Rob Van Dam has opened up on why he made his return to Impact Wrestling.
He did so when he teamed longtime friend Sabu when they worked the “United We Stand” event on April 4th during WrestleMania against the Lucha Bros.
This is when it was revealed that the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion had signed a new deal with the company that is now rebranded as Impact Wrestling.
Since that time, he has worked several TV tapings. RVD recently spoke with James Walsh of Wrestling Epicenter where he explained why he made his return.
“What brought me back was business. On a personal side, yes, I am making a lot more money than I was in my last run… A LOT more, James! (laughs) I am in the position that Sting was in back in my first run. I am the veteran, the guy that everyone loves to see. They’re using my name Hopefully it will draw a little attention! But, unlike Sting, RVD is still out there kicking ass – Doing the 5 Star Frogsplash, the Rolling Thunder, the Van Daminator… I can still do all the moves! I just don’t claim to be as hungry as these other guys and they’re ready to show it, too!”
