The WWE Hall of Famer made a splash when he showed up not long ago, but what’s next for RVD in AEW?

If you hadn’t been paying attention, Rob Van Dam was just the latest ECW alum to show up in All Elite Wrestling.

His entrance to the company was facilitated by fellow ECW alum Jerry Lynn.

This was all tied to the newly minted heel, Jack Perry, going after HOOK and targeting a few linked to HOOK’s dad’s former employer.

In case you somehow didn’t know, HOOK’s dad is AEW announcer and former ECW and WWE Superstar Taz.

Yes, just one Z.

While his prime may be behind him, Van Dam remains in top shape and can still go in the ring.

So after a couple appearances, is RVD going to be done like Sabu?

Van Dam is an interesting discussion.

Not long before he showed up in AEW, we saw him working with WWE during the draft episodes.

And, per Fightful, Van Dam actually asked WWE for permission to work with AEW.

And while he apparently got permission to show up for Tony Khan in August…it may have cost him.

Van Dam noted that his Philly WrestleMania involvement, that many fans were expecting, may now be off the table because of his appearances.

For his part, Tony Khan has left the door open for any future work with Rob Van Dam.

And you cannot blame him. Van Dam has looked good in his limited work with the company, and he still has his fans.

So, while the request for permission may have kept him on good terms with the company that put him in the Hall of Fame…it may have also cost him some work during next year’s WrestleMania.

Personally, as someone who enjoyed watching RVD in ECW, I do hope to see him in Philly in some capacity.
