Although Rob Van Dam and TNA have yet to officially announce they have parted ways, RVD talked in the past-tense about this stage of his wrestling career in an interview with Shelly Martinez on VOC Nation. RVD commented on life after TNA: "First off, I'm looking forward to seeing you at WrestleCon. Up here at the office in Hollywood, one of the projects I'm spending a lot of time on is the lifestyle brand...It's getting ready to blow up." The new project is a clothing line that features Shelly and TNA Knockouts modeling his "non-conformity" brand of t-shirts and sweatshirts. The recent X Division champion also released a new audio blog denying that he said during his previous audio blog that he's a free agent and just sitting at home without a contract. Also during the interview, RVD made it sound like TNA would be his preferred option if given a choice whether to continue with TNA or re-join WWE in the future. "I’ve been wrestling over 23 years and I just started feeling like I deserve to have respect over the last few years. TNA gave me first class treatment, and that was a big change from WWE," RVD said.
