At a QA eventuality during a Mid-Atlantic Legends Fanfest (h/t PWInsider.com), Van Dam pronounced that even yet he’s in between WWE contracts, going to Ring of Honor or TNA would crack a deal. And after observant he could go behind to a association during any time, a maestro mentioned a thought of doing a retirement tour.
Hopefully someone in a WWE relays that info to some higher-ups. It’s a no-brainer of an idea.
Van Dam isn’t meddlesome in a full-time deal, that he mentioned during a fanfest. He’s too aged to go on for years and years anyway. If he’s truly deliberation unresolved adult his boots, WWE should take that eventuality to showcase him as it did Flair, bettering a WWE Network and elevating new stars along a way.

There are series of matchups Van Dam simply hasn’t had since he hasn’t been around and new talent has emerged in his absence. A retirement debate is WWE‘s possibility to broach a series of these with an overarching story.
A Fresh Narrative
Van Dam wouldn’t be fighting for a championship. He wouldn’t be concerned in one of a many bitter, personal feuds that are such a tack of a industry.
He would be revelation a whole other story.
Mr. Monday Night could be out to infer himself opposite a new era of Superstars. He could only announce how many matches he has on his agreement and emanate a countdown feel as he finishes any one.
That opens a doorway for heels to wish to do mistreat to him and vanquish him to uncover their dominance. Babyfaces could step adult to plea him in sequence to benefit his respect.
WWE has options with a timeline as well. It could save that final hitch for WrestleMania or else it could make another eventuality feel vital by adding RVD‘s final stand. Were Van Dam to finish his WWE career during Extreme Rules in a disaster of splintered Kendo sticks and damaged tables, it would only feel right. Not to mention, it would give that pay-per-view a boost.
