- As noted, Rob Van Dam will be returning at WWE's Money in the Bank pay-per-view. WWE's website has an article up, speculating if he will be in a Money in the Bank ladder match or what. WWE Superstars gave their thoughts on RVD's return: Paul Heyman: "The entire WWE Universe is buzzing about the return of a true one-of-a-kind, Rob Van Dam. And no one, I assure you, no one is more exhilarated about the return of RVD than Paul Heyman himself. Because after all, Rob Van Dam is a "Paul Heyman Guy."" The Miz: "One of the greatest highfliers, a Legend in my mind. I remember from ECW to WWE, this guy is action-packed, he is a showstopper, he is must-see. He's not going to take The Miz's spot. I welcome all comers. I've always welcomed anyone that's come back, because the fact is, if people are going to watch them, they're going to stay to watch me. Who knows how much he has left in the tank? I'm curious to see how he does. I'm a huge fan and I look forward to getting in the ring with him." Vickie Guerrero: "My responsibility is making the best opportunities for Monday Night Raw. To have RVD return back to WWE, I am honored to be part of the board that looked at his profile and welcomed him with open arms. RVD and I go back many years to when he was with Eddie. I cannot wait to see him here." Brad Maddox: "Of course I'm not surprised, because I signed him. Or I should say, re-signed the legendary RVD. I specifically told him to wait for Money in the Bank, because I wanted to maximize profitability." Titus O'Neil: "Anything that gets the WWE Universe excited in any way, shape or form, I'm excited about. Because that means more fans in the WWE Universe that will be spending more money to buy Prime Time Players T-shirts. So yeah, I'm excited about RVD coming back." Damien Sandow: "I am not threatened by any man whose name is three letters." Possible Feud for Rob Van Dam Revealed, Sexy New Shelly Martinez Photos, More...
