Rob Van Dam is making a return to pro wrestling.
The former ECW and WWE star, who spent time in the former TNA Wrestling from 2010 to 2013, will be making his return to Impact Wrestling going forward.
RVD revealed to Sporting News that he has signed an “extended agreement” with Impact that will keep him around beyond the “United We Stand” iPPV on FITE special that Impact will be presenting later tonight from Rahway, New Jersey.
“It looks like you are going to be seeing my face around for the foreseeable future. We have an agreement to where I will be sticking after the show on Thursday. It does have a beginning and an end, but they can extend, so this is something to start us off. I had agreed to one match, and then we talked about and discussed doing their upcoming tapings after the show on Thursday and a couple of television tapings over the next few months. We looked at the schedule moving forward, and they asked if I was available. I told them I was.
“We will see how it goes. It’s a pretty friendly schedule, which has always been important to me. I want to be home more and on the road less. That’s still something I’ve done since I left WWE in 2007. Impact with their schedule and the position they want me to fill for my career seems like a perfect situation. Hopefully it will be mutually beneficial, and we will see “The Whole F’N Show” back on television.”
RVD returned to WWE back in 2013 and departed around August of 2014. He’s remained active on the independent scene, but has not worked for any of the major wrestling promotions in the United States for the last four years.
He’s currently scheduled for the upcoming Impact TV tapings on April 29 in Toronto.
