It's interesting to note that Rob Van Dam said in an interview on Joe McDonnell Uncensored in October 2012 that his TNA contract was up in March 2013. The deal was originally believed to expire in March 2012 but had an option for another year. This comes at time where TNA is in the process of overhauling their contracts to a new format we first reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com Premium.
5:37 PM EST Update: I just spoke with a source who told me they heard RVD was going to be the "next headache" following the contract situation of Bobby Roode. Roode's contract status dominated Lockdown weekend as the company put together a deal at the last minute to assure he'd be able to work the pay-per-view as advertised.
