As seen during the July 26th 2023 edition of AEW Dynamite, a match was teased between FTW champion Jack Perry and ECW veteran Jerry Lynn. There has been teases of additional former ECW stars becoming involved in a storyline with Perry.
According to a report on Fightful.com, Rob Van Dam has been discussed internally for a match with Jack Perry for the FTW Championship at the 2023 All In event at Wembley Stadium. There is a possibility of RVD making other AEW appearances in addition to All In although nothing has been confirmed yet.
During his latest podcast, RVD gave praise to Perry’s heel promo work…
“He had everybody listening to him, you know, smooth. Wasn’t screaming like, ‘I’m gonna rip your head off,’ you know? But it was still getting heat, and he just was comfortable, took his time. So I was impressed with that.”
RVD was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2021 and last wrestled on December 17th 2022.
