WWE Hall of Famer Rob Van Dam has commented on his recent AEW return for a match against Swerve Strickland.

Van Dam was revealed to be Strickland’s opponent for a hardcore match on the January 31 edition of Dynamite, with Hangman Adam Page hand-picking Strickland’s opponent for this show.
Speaking on his 1 Of A Kind podcast, RVD stated that he really enjoyed working with Strickland.

Commenting on the reception of the bout, with fans saying it looked like the ECW legend was having fun in there, Van Dam said:
“I really enjoyed the match. I had a little extra time because they booked it, and then they pushed it back a week which changed the location from Savannah to New Orleans, but they had this match in mind that they were wanting to bring me in for.
“I just knew, I dig this guy’s vibe, and we are going to have a f**king kickass match. I understood the assignment. I came in to punish him hardcore style, and I thought it went really well. I haven’t watched it yet, I’ve seen just some highlights.
“People said they could tell I saw having fun that know me. Got a lot of people talking, lots of good stuff, people are blown away. Glad to inspire.”

With Strickland and Page wrestling to a time-limit draw on Wednesday’s (February 7) Dynamite episode, both stars will challenge for Samoa Joe’s AEW World Championship in a threeway match at Revolution.
