Documents obtained through Rob Van Dam’s divorce proceedings have revealed the 47-year-old is unable to return to WWE. According to documents filed by his lawyers, RVD suffered permanent vision loss due to a concussion suffered last November for PCW in California.
This vision loss and history of concussions, his lawyer contends, will prevent him from ever competing inside a WWE ring again.
