While both Rob Van Dam and MVP have been in talks with WWE about potential returns, we’re told Triple H hasn’t shown much interest in MVP and he’s far more open to bringing back RVD. One source, speaking with under the condition of anonymity, says Hunter is playing hardball with both. He wants the precedent set that if you leave, you can’t just “waltz back in” whenever you want.
RVD claimed earlier this week he had plans but didn’t reveal them. He did, however, confirm he has not signed a contract with anyone as of this week.
As for the precedent Triple H is trying to set, we’re told this could also play a part in his strained relationship with The Rock. Some of the boys look at The Rock’s schedule and feel the company shouldn’t cater so much to a guy that comes and goes as he pleases. Despite this, he's a huge draw and it's better for everyone when he is around.
Brock Lesnar doesn’t get the same amount of heat because he hasn’t been in the championship picture and he hasn’t been beating guys that are there all the time.
