Rob Van Dam gave us some snippets of work over the past couple of years, coming back for several 90-day stints, as was his contractual obligation. In this time, he unsurprisingly gave us some incredible matches, going up against the likes of Cesaro and Dean Ambrose. Creative wise, eventually the WWE gave him some storylines that seemed lackluster and oddly paired him with Riccardo Rodriguez.
Still, RVD's work rate was still good enough for fans to clamor for yet another return to WWE programming. RVD got hundreds of tweets from fans this week asking him if and when he'll return.
When there's a good reason to. https://t.co/qXTiOSkEVE

RVD went into more detail in an interview with WNS Podcast on why he's in no hurry to return to WWE programming. He also have his thoughts on his recent WWE run.
"I had some good matches because all the wrestlers up there are really good and I had some matches that I enjoyed with Seth Rollins and Cesaro. But, overall, it was nothing like the run the year before. 2013, I came back after many years off WWE television. They promoted it strong. Like maybe stronger than anybody’s return before with the video packages of RVD coming back. When I came back, I delivered. Money In The Bank match in Philadelphia, that was awesome. That whole run I had a good time in 2013. In 2014, it was like they had nothing for me. No big intros, the writers seemed to not notice I was there. Like my music hit the day after WrestleMania and I kinda just walked out like I had always been there. It was good but I don’t think there was a lot of utilization put on RVD. That’s really the big reason I’m not in a hurry to go back."
