Although Rob Van Dam and TNA have yet to announce they have parted ways, RVD talked in the past-tense about this stage of his wrestling career during an interview with Shelly Martinez this past Monday.
The former X-Division champion commented on “life after TNA” during the interview, “First off, I’m looking forward to seeing you at WrestleCon. Up here at the office in Hollywood, one of the projects I’m spending a lot of time on is the lifestyle brand…It’s getting ready to blow up.”
The new project is a clothing line that features Shelly and TNA Knockouts modeling his “non-conformity” brand of t-shirts and sweatshirts.
RVD also released a new audio blog denying what he said during his previous audio blog that he’s a free agent and just sitting at home without a contract.
RVD made it sound like TNA would be his preferred option if given a choice whether to continue with TNA or re-join WWE in the future.
“I’ve been wrestling over 23 years and I just started feeling like I deserve to have respect over the last few years. TNA gave me first class treatment, and that was a big change from WWE,” RVD said.
