Rob Van Dam will be returning to AEW on next week's Collision.
As announced on last night's Collision, the Whole F'n Show will be appearing on next Saturday's show, which takes place from Grand Rapids, Michigan. While it's been announced that RVD will wrestle on Collision, it's not yet known who the one-time WWE Champion will be facing.
Of course, Van Dam made his AEW debut last month, being introduced by his long-time rival Jerry Lynn as part of Lynn's beef with Jack Perry. Though it was teased that we would get Lynn vs. Perry, the severity of Jerry's prior neck issues meant that was never really a possibility, and thus Lynn brought RVD into the AEW fold to battle Perry on his behalf.
That match would take place on the 9 August edition of AEW Dynamite, where Mr. Monday Night would come up short against the former Jungle Boy for the FTW Title. Since then, Perry has lost that championship to HOOK... and has been absent from AEW programming since being suspended for his backstage altercation with CM Punk at Wembley Stadium.
Also announced for next week's Collision, Ricky Starks and Bryan Danielson will do battle in a Texas Death Match, FTR will defend the AEW Tag Team Titles against the WorkHorsemen, and Andrade El Idolo will face Jay White.
