Latest On RVD's WWE Status and Return

When will he be back?
Rob Van Dam's contract structure of working 90 days then getting time off was something he and Triple H came up with. Vince McMahon approved the idea when it was pitched to him. RVD has other projects he wants to work on, which is why he didn't want to work for extended periods. He is allowed to work with other wrestling companies during his time off but can't appear on their TV or DVD.
WWE creative hopes to have Van Dam back for the Royal Rumble and book him through Extreme Rules. This would be longer than 90 days, but they are confident they'll have him back at least through WrestleMania.
