Van Dam already has the chance to capture gold in the company, as he is set to take on Jack Perry in a FTW Championship match on the August 9 episode of Dynamite.

On the latest episode of the One Of A Kind podcast, Van Dam was asked to share some insight into the backstage environment in All Elite Wrestling.

But when I’ve done TV for international shows that my fans wouldn’t know about, like in the UK or Australia, maybe I would [compare it to that] as far as like the free air, people are walking around genuinely happy to be there.
