It is incredible to see how far things have come for the cruiserweight division from the days of Austin Aries and Neville to now with Buddy Murphy leading the charge. At this point Aries and Neville were leading a lackluster division that from the perspective of the fans looked like WWE didn't really care about. Even though Neville had been the hottest heel in the company for the last few months it was puzzling how little the company seemed to care.
This is would really become a controversial match as it would become the match that would be the main reason that Austin Aries would leave the company after having his match bumped from the Wrestlemania DVD. Now not being featured on a DVD may not seem like a big idea, but when you think about the underlying idea of that without the DVD there was no Mania bonus for Neville or Aries. It is debated if this started a downward spiral for Neville and his WWE tenure or not, but I would expect that it did. Comparing this match to the first match I picked out for the hype it is a completely different match then the other one. Either way though it will be interesting to see how different this year will be for the once struggling division.
