RVD Update, “Dr. Death” To Retire, Hart Negotiations, More

Nick Paglino


Former WWE Champion Rob Van Dam recently did an interview with Between the Ropes where he discussed his current wrestling status. He made it clear that he will not be returning to TNA or WWE at this point, and will only consider doing so when his wife beats cancer. He did say he would work a few NWE dates, but that’s all he has planned at this point.

Steve “Dr. Death” Williams, a former WWE and WCW Superstar, has been released from the hospital following surgery to treat a hernia. At this point, Williams is now considering retiring as an active wrestler, as he is 48 years old and feels he is too injury prone. WWE stopped using Williams as a developmental trainer a little over a year ago and he has been working a few independent dates ever since.

Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan will be together at an autograph signing on 12/13 in Secaucus, New Jersey. Hogan has reportedly lowered his asking price for the signing from $75,000 to $50,000.

The Tap Out Clothing Company is looking to release a line of clothing centered around a Hitman theme, and has been in negotiations with Bret “The Hitman” Hart for trademark purposes. Hart owns the rights to his “Hitman” character and will most likely be working out a deal to allow them to use the name as opposed to actually endorsing the product line.
