WWE Hall of Famer Rob Van Dam recently spoke on his podcast, “1 Of A Kind With RVD,” about a variety of professional wrestling topics including his retirement:

“I used to think I was going to retire a few years ago. I haven’t put a lot of thought into it. I just kind of figured semi-retired and I would probably just not pick up bookings anymore eventually or whatever, but now I don’t think I ever will. Why bother? I’ll probably be like Dory Funk Jr and just never retire. As much as I pride myself on being genuine and honest and I like to set an example by the way I live, I wouldn’t want to retire and then come back two years later and wrestle again like everybody does, but I don’t know that I would miss it and that’s why I thought it would be easy to do before because people always ask, ‘Do you miss it?’ ‘No.’ I’m still doing it. ”

He continued, “Maybe if I didn’t do it and I knew I wasn’t going to do it again, for sure I would have a different perspective, whatever it is, but instead, it’s the opposite. I have one match coming up for sure. I might have three before then that are on the developmental table, let’s say. Let’s see what happens there. That’s my thoughts on retirement anyway.”
