RVD coming back
So, apparently and at least according with some reports Rob Van Dam has already signed a new deal with World Wrestling Entertainment and will come back after Wrestlemania possibly working a feud with CM Punk.
There is a big problem with this... Rob Van Dam doesn't matter anymore. Sure, his ring work it's still fine, but he is nowhere near the level he was when he left, and that's not TNA's fault but getting old does that...
And a feud with Punk? I fear that a feud with Punk means CM Punk will go back to the straight-edge heel with nothing going for him and if the next feud after Mania for Punk is with RVD it guarantees he will lose to Undertaker and it will be a big drop for him to work with RVD.
I have nothing against RVD but I don't see the point in all of this. If you told me that RVD would work with someone like Ziggler who could help both of them with great matches, I would mind a bit but at least it would make sense. Even putting him in a tag team with somebody else would be good but returning to face Punk seems pretty stupid and doesn't seem like something Vince would do, after all RVD spent the last years on TNA and now comes back to face the biggest heel in the company?
