I actually think the idea of RVD in the tag division is not bad at all. He could be paired with a younger guy, perhaps even an NXT prospect, to create a nice combination of youth and experience. This way, the younger guy can do a lot of the legwork and van Dam can come in for the hot tag and the highspots. It would add to a very shallow tag team division; the only problem is, it would further reduce the chances of guys like the PTP finally getting a legitimate shot at the belts.
I totally agree - in fact, Neville was the guy I particularly had in mind when I mentioned RVD teaming up with an NXT guy. Two generations of showstopping high risk guys - I'd buy that as a duo. And an additional plus would be that it would help establish Neville quickly. A problem with the face contingent of NXT is that it is more difficult to find interesting ways to get them to début onto the main roster compared to heels. Being RVD's choice, and being able to work with a veteran, would do wonders for the guy.

RVD is past tag teaming with anyone. With the amount of popularity this man has apparently, he should be given a lengthy WHC title run. Damien Sandow cashes in on him, and defeats RVD. This puts over Sandow, and at the same time gives Smackdown a solid name for house shows for half a year with RVD as champion. I think RVD has earned enough respect to consider him a main event talent for Smackdown.
I was thinking that maybe RVD could challenge Dean Ambrose for the US title. Perhaps he could even get a little ECW team together to face The Shield in a 6 man tag match. I was thinking about RVD's 'New Triple Threat' team from ECW in 1998 - where he teamed with Sabu and Taz to face Shane Douglas, Chris Candido and Bam Bam Bigelow. I'm not sure how an ECW team could be presented at the moment, though, as Heyman is currently in full yuppie heel manager mode. Either way, this could be an enjoyable rivalry for the Shield to sink their teeth into while the Wyatt Family are built up.
if only robo van dam could get hold of the last of hulk hogans famous hair, with them he could make a serum potion to inject his own blood system and thus giving himself a considerable boost of talent, its a worth a shot even if it doesnt work
