Back in early 2017 WWE had finally found a way to make the cruiserweight division interesting and it was the return of Neville. For those who don't remember since he debuted on the main roster Neville had been booked as a face, but upon his return though he turned heel for the first time on the main roster. Neville would attack Rich Swann following his title defense and then would defeat Swann at the following PPV. After wining the title he would elevate the division and actual increase fan interest to the highest point it had been since the return of the division.
However, the success wouldn't last as things would head south soon after WrestleMania with the departure of Austin Aries. Over the summer everything would change when Big Cass & Enzo would break up as a team leading to a failed feud between the two and it would later see Enzo dethrone the "King of the Cruiserweights." I will admit that at first I was intrigued as too what this could mean not just for Enzo, but Neville as well as it could be his ascension up the card.
Unfortunately, the WWE continued it's terrible track record with push smaller talent or doing things that fans don't expect. Neville would shock the wrestling world last October when news broke that he walked out of Raw and may have left the company. From that point on we wouldn't hear anything positive about Neville coming back and would actually find out he had been very unhappy in the months leading up to his departure. From there the WWE would do what they do best and would freeze Neville's contract expecting him to return. Recently though the news broke that Neville may actually be a free man after almost a year of having his contract frozen. Overall though late last week various sites have reported that Neville is officially free and is free to go anywhere he would like at this point. Clearly though it would be amazing to see Neville return home after all these years and will be another name to add to the golden age of the UK wrestling scene.
