WWE officially announced Monday on dot com that Rob Van Dam is taking time off from the company. The storyline excuse is that he needs time off after "an excruciating defeat" to World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio. His comments were filmed for the WWE Battleground DVD.
In reality, RVD's new WWE contract is in 90 day increments and his most recent cycle is up. RVD will be returning for another 90 days but not before going on hiatus.
