WWE intentionally left three spots open for the 30-man Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal so they would have some surprise entrants. One of those spots could be given to Rob Van Dam and as late Wednesday night, he was still under consideration. We can confirm Van Dam is in New Orleans, however, the preliminary plan is for him to return afterWrestlemania XXX.

One of the reasons why WWE may choose not to utilize RVD at Wrestlemania is because Vince McMahon is concerned about Raw the night after being a letdown. Saving Van Dam for Raw in New Orleans could be a more desirable plan of action.

While RVD's re-debut date has flip flopped, the company is still working on an end date for him as well. WWE really wants him to stay through SummerSlam, however, he's looking for a commitment in the 90-120 day range.

With that being said, it is close enough to where one key observer believes RVD will end up working for WWE through SummerSlam this year.
