Let us take a look at 5 of the most interesting news and rumors from the 'Impact Zone' this week:
#1 RVD signs a new deal
ECW Legend and former WWE Champion, Rob Van Dam, is currently part of Impact Wrestling. As per Van Dam's earlier deal, the Superstar was expected to be with the company till next month, however, as per a new contract, RVD will now continue to perform for Impact till January next year.
Here is what Rob Van Dam stated:
I talked with IMPACT! about what I wanted to do, which is mostly stay home unless the business reaches a certain level to pique my interest, And they came to that level.
Everyone’s talking about AEW, and how they could be scaring WWE. I happen to know IMPACT! can afford RVD, so they’re something someone should be talking about too. It’s all business. I did a match, I think it was WrestleCon—Sabu and I had a tag match and first it was just a one off, and then Scott D’Amore in the office said, ‘Hey, what do you think about doing this other handful of matches?’
Took me to October, and then recently we added a few more matches so I’ll be with them ‘til January. Then we’ll see how it goes after that.”
Do you think RVD will continue to be a part of Impact Wrestling even after January? Let us know in the comments!
