The future of Rob Van Dam in WWE is very much up in the air. Apparently, Van Dam rejected WWEâ<80><99>s latest contract offer. I have heard RVD is open to the idea of re-signing with WWE, but would like to receive his down-side guarantee while taking a break from the ring, which of course, hasnâ<80><99>t been agreed to by WWE. There are various reports regarding the date when RVDâ<80><99>s current contract actually expires. I donâ<80><99>t have this 100% confirmed, but multiple sources have told me his current WWE contract expires in June or July.

Here are some recent WWE attendance figures and live gates:

– 4/14 Smackdown in Perugla, Italy drew 2,100 paid ($150,000 gate)

– 4/14 Raw in Florence, Italy did 2,900 fans ($196,000)

– 4/15 Smackdown in Bologna, Italy drew 2,400 fans ($141,000)

– 4/15 Raw in Torino, Italy drew 4,070 ($260,000)

– 4/16 Smackdown in Genova, Italy did 2,990 paid ($176,000)

– 4/17 Raw in Rome, Italy drew 4,100 ($245,000)

– 4/18 Smackdown in Rome, Italy drew 4,993 ($280,000)

– 4/18 Raw in Forli, Italy drew 2,767 ($159,000)

– 4/19 Raw in Munich, Germany did 4,025 paid ($385,000)

– 4/19 Smackdown in Ancona, Italy drew 1,285 paid ($89,000)

– 4/20 Raw in Mannheim, Germany drew 5,844 ($538,000)

– 4/24 Raw in Paris, France drew 5,349 [sell out] ($389,000)

Apparently the disappointing numbers has cooled off talks of WWE creating international territories.
