Rob Van Dam On AEW Talks – “I’m All About The Money”

‘Th Whole F’N Show’ Rob Van Dam has spoken about on the subject of All Elite Wrestling and whether or not he’s had talk about making the transition to Jacksonville.

Ever since the former WWE and ECW Champion left IMPACT Wrestling, the question on everyone’s lips has been where would RVD end-up next. With WWE seemingly out of the question thanks to Van Dam’s frowned upon extra curricular activities outside the squared circle, many fans looked to AEW as a potential home.

Now, ‘Mr. Monday Night’ has sat down with Thibaud Choplin to where his future lays and whether or not he’s been in discussion with AEW for a debut:

“I’m not in talks with Chris Jericho or anyone in AEW. I’m all about the money. You know, people don’t understand. Some fans are ignorant. They don’t understand it’s a business. Some people think that when I had the WWE belt and the ECW belt, I was in my prime, and they probably think that I wish I was still there. But now I make 20 to 30 times in one match what WWE was paying me at the lowest.

I could make that much more money in one match than in 20 matches. Why would you want to work 30 matches to make the same money that you can work one match and make money? That’s something fans can’t understand cause they think we just love to be in the ring 24/7.”

The last time we saw Rob Van Dam inside a ring was on the September 22 IMPACT Wrestling when he fought his final bout for the company. In that match, Van Dam defeated Sami Callihan to round out a memorable stint with the promotion.
