Aside from a brief appearance in the 2009 Royal Rumble match, Rob Van Dam hasn’t competed in a WWE ring in nearly six years. He’ll be making his long awaited return to the company this Sunday at the Money in the Bank event in the All-Stars Money in the Bank Ladder match.
I fully expect RVD to have a role similar to Chris Jericho's upon his return in the sense that he’ll be working most of the televised tapings and pay-per-views. That being said, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for him to be in contention for one of WWE’s most prestigious prizes.
He and Alberto Del Rio have never before clashed in the squared circle, but I’m sure their eventual encounter would be nothing short of excellent. If RVD were to capture the world title, he would join an elite group of individuals who have held the WWE Championship, ECW Championship and World Heavyweight Championship.
Likewise, a win over the one-of-a-kind competitor could give Del Rio an immense amount of credibility as champion. RVD could be a valuable asset to the blue brand and help make the title picture exciting once again.
Whether it be Rob Van Dam, CM Punk or any of the other aforementioned Superstars, there is a long list of worthy contenders who are anxious to take the title off the waist of Alberto Del Rio. Who would you like to see challenge Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship in the coming months?
