Well the man has tried his best to squash the rumors of him in TNA, but fans of TNA still want to make rumors about him debuting in TNA, well this is mine and RVD's second attempt to squash these rumors about RVD at Genesis or TNA at all.
In an interview with the Baltimore Sun, Van Dam stated that while WWE would be the first choice and that he would definitely talk to them, he would definitely consider Total Nonstop Wrestling (TNA) if he returned full time to pro wrestling.
He also spoke his thoughts regarding his choice between both companies.
I definitely would consider them. I would weigh out everything and decide what really is the best thing to do. When I knew that I was not going to re-sign with WWE, which was around Wrestlemania time when I knew for sure that I was going to stick to that plan, my first thoughts were, “OK, well there’s this TNA.”
I think that’s pretty funny even imagining Vince giving in to something like that for that reason. One thing that’s for sure is that WWE and I do have a good-faith understanding that if and when I’m ready to return that I’ll be talking to them.
They look forward and hope that we’ll be doing business again. They hope it’s real soon. Honestly, I’m free as can be.
I would also consider the lighter schedule from another company. But, honestly, giving up the prestige of the WWE would be something that I would look at as a downward move.
I don’t fit with the formula – I never have. I’ve never tried to be like anybody else. I’m a non-conformist in every way, and when it comes to wrestling, that’s certainly true, too.
If I won on my way out and you’re not supposed to do that, that’s just another example of how I’m one of a kind.
