Rob Van Dam is not under a non-compete agreement from his WWE contract. After his deal with WWE expired on July 1st after he opted not to renew, he was available to work with any company that he wanted. When WWE releases a talent that is when there is a non-compete agreement where WWE will pay the wrestler for 90 days in exchange for them not working for another company. That is not the case for RVD and he could work for TNA if he wanted. However, it has been said that Van Dam plans to take some time away from wrestling and spend some time with his family.
