Appearing on TC Martin Show, RVD discussed his upcoming special.

"It's part of the Icons series. A lot of people caught the Yokozuna Icons and I watched it the other day to know what to expect. I'm so stoked and it's so good. It's not going to be like another documentary. This is telling my whole story. My career, my life, it's like having a movie made about you. We filmed some incredible stuff. They were at my house, my private gym, and they filmed me doing some RVD stuff. People are going to watch this and be like, 'Why is RVD not in the ring right now?' That's cool. They got people's feedback on me and other wrestlers. They got my family and even RVD CBD. There is a lot of freedom in this special to tell the story of the individual. It wasn't the strict guidelines people expect from WWE," said RVD.

When asked why he isn't back in the ring, Van Dam replied, "I must be busy doing something else. Money is a priority."

A premiere date for WWE Icons: Rob Van Dam has not been given.

Van Dam has not wrestled in WWE since 2014. He recently finished up a run with IMPACT Wrestling.
