Rob Van Dam's contract will expire on 6/27, there are rumors he has verbally agreed to a new multi-year deal with the company. Though, as of last word
he has not officially re-signed.
There had been some talk which has recently subsided, that RVD would be leaving the company once his current contract was up. But there is some
feeling that if RVD does leave WWE, there will really be nowhere else for him to go due to the fact that Japan is not what it once was nowadays and
most guys who work with WWE don't fathom the idea of going back to Japan. The money is less over there and the style of wrestling is physically harder
on the body, as well as the audience response being a lot less.
Many feel that RVD could do well working indies short-term, though he wouldn't even come near what he is earning in WWE and many feel that it is much
too big of a risk to take with a career such as this.
