"Burning out in WWE, displeasure with Vince McMahon's version of ECW: That frustration, where I didn't even want to represent this new ECW, certainly led to me not enjoying being there any more. I was burnt out on every level — mind, spirit and body. Although physically I was still managing to hold up, I was so tired. They had me on the road so much and I was not enjoying my job. It felt so routine and I was starting to really hate the travel and resent that I was never home. Also my contract promised me a month off, which I never got and really resented. I had a couple of really long talks with Vince, both about the direction he was driving ECW in and about the fact I never had a break. The result of one of those meetings was Vince turned to the office and said: "Rob should be getting time off." I got one Saturday night off three months later! Towards the end there they were double booking me — working afternoon and night time shows. So when my contract was up, I had an exit. I didn't quit, I finished my job and said: "I'm done. Thank you for the opportunity. I'll come back when, and if, I feel the desire." So far it's been two and a half years and I'm nowhere near ready to go back to full-time wrestling."
"When asked if TNA is an option: It's possible. Never say never. I have been in communication with TNA recently. They did a PPV in Los Angeles and I went down and met them. I've talked to them over the phone since then. I've also spoken to the other side, who don't seem to want me to talk to TNA! But it's interesting times right now. I'm not looking for a position, but the business is trying to create a position for me. I'm sitting here in the Vam Dam Dojo — my house of peace — and loving life. Being on the road, dealing with the stress of all those egos and attitudes and people trying to take control of my image, is not very peaceful. There's no way I'd come back on a full-time schedule, but if someone bends to meet my terms then it's possible just the right doorway may open and it may be a smart one for me to go through. Both companies have their advantages. TNA wrestle pretty much only in Florida, where my mum and dad live and is easy on the travel. Plus I'd be able to promote all my personal projects...very blatantly probably. But in WWE, just because there is so much more exposure and prestige involved, it probably makes up for a lot of what would be advantageous in TNA. Nobody ever considers that WWE would offer the same schedule as TNA do, but let's see if they want RVD badly enough. Anything could happen."
As much as I would love to see RVD back in WWE doesn't sound like that is going to happen Vince would never agree to a deal like that.
I just want to see him on one of the two shows I'm not that big in to TNA but I would sure watch it alot more if they had RVD.
