Quote There have been rumors going around on Tuesday that former Cruiserweight Champion Neville requested his release from WWE on Monday. As noted, Neville was initially scheduled to lose to Enzo Amore in the main event lumberjack match on Raw this week. However, plans changed to Kalisto defeating Amore for the title.

Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that the reason the plans were changed is due to Neville walking out before the show. Satin would point out that an account using the handle @WrestleVotes tweeted today saying Neville quit. According to Satin, there is some truth in that claim.

In an update, F4Wonline.com has been able to confirm that Neville did walk out of Raw before the show began and that his future is up in the air. WWE has officially denied that he quit the promotion.

It should be noted that Neville did not appear on WWE 205 Live on Tuesday night and his profile remains on the WWE website as of this writing.

 
I did wonder where he was. It will be a shame if he's annoyed enough to quit, as he's been used really well so he can't complain at booking.
 
205 lost Aries and so if Neville ends up leaving it would show that getting over on 205 gets you away from the company instead of to a better show.
 
Maybe his contract is close to being up so that's why they took the title off him and he thinks he can earn more on the indys?

So if he's quit I wonder why? Perhaps he's annoyed that he worked so hard as the top guy in 205 Live getting his heel persona over and producing decent matches only for the Cruiserweight division to still be treated as a after-thought, then Enzo comes along and all of a sudden the Cruiserweights are in the main event spot on Raw.

Neville is a incredible in ring talent and I've felt for a while he deserves better than 205 Live, he could at least be a solid upper mid-card act.

I really hope he hasn't quit but he would be able to make a very good living on the indies with his name value and prior Indy reputation, he would be a top draw.

I agree and if he has quit i think that should really be that for 205 live 

It would be interesting to know why hes quit - my guess is that he feels he should be on the main shows as opposed to in the 205 division and part of my reason for thinking that was when Enzo used the fact hes been in the third hour twice and also the fact he requested the title defense was in the main event

Like adders said - hes been booked well in the matches hes worked - for me it can only be that hes unhappy at not being on the main shows

Maybe he got a look at his future booking?

I mean if he was told: "We don't have any plans for you anymore" then on top of everything else I could definitely see that as reason enough to want to go.

I suppose not only Enzo should be on the watch list but Kalisto too. lol

Despite the lack of interest in 205 Live Neville has emerged as a standout talent and showed previously unseen personality in his heel role, he was the highlight of the Cruiserweight division but his matches were still booked as pre-show offerings mostly.

Then Enzo comes along as alll of a sudden 205 Live features in the Raw main event. Maybe this was just a eye opener for Neville and perhaps his future booking called for him to put Enzo over.

I think it would have been smart to have Neville lose to Enzo again but then move him to Smackdown away from the Cruiserweights and push him as a strong mid-card talent.

Quote  Regarding Neville's WWE status, sources have confirmed that he walked out of Monday's RAW in Indianapolis before the show hit the air. The plan was for Neville to lose to WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore in the non-title Lumberjack main event. The match ended up having Enzo drop the title to Kalisto.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Neville walked out when he learned of the loss he was to take. This was a last minute decision made by Vince McMahon, reportedly because no one could come up with a better idea at the last minute, they put the title on Kalisto instead of having Enzo defeat another cruiserweight. The Observer adds that the current plan is to get the title back on Enzo. The title change could come at the October 22nd TLC pay-per-view when Enzo receives his rematch.

Neville's status with the company is still up in the air but it's believed that he's gone. One source close to the situation insists that he's 100% gone. As noted yesterday, WWE is officially denying that he quit and the official word is that he's still with the company. His profile remains on the WWE website as of this writing but we will keep you updated.

Seems very much like he has gone if these close sources are to believe

Its a shame really because he has been one of the standout performers within the whole of WWE lately

Hes obviously not happy with the direction of either the division or his character - im not sure where he will get the same level of coverage - yes he could go to TNA and probably have multiple title runs but he isnt going to get the mainstream coverage or money that hell be getting within WWE

I wonder if he's going to get the CM Punk treatment from the fans??? I mean, I really don't see how this is any different from what CM Punk did.

For the record, I lean towards favoring CM Punk in his departure... Example: 

Where 5 is neutral, 1 is completely in favor of CM Punk, and 10 is completely in favor of the WWE, I'm at about a 3.5

As far as Neville is concerned I'm at about a 4 right now.

See I'd favour WWE on both occasions.....

CM Punk was a indie mark deep down who felt he should be main eventing Wrestlemania with guys like Daniel Bryan, he hated that WWE pushed guys like Roman Reigns and hated even more that the best spots went to part-timers like The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar.

What annoyed me about Punk was he whined and complained about stuff that has been happening in WWE for years and will continue to happen, the big name stars are proven draws and all things considered he had a very good hall of fame WWE career and had little to complain about. He just sulked because they have what he felt should be his Wrestlemania pay day to guys like The Rock and Brock Lesnar.

I think there is more to this Neville story, he may not have had the best of times so far but it's not been all bad, the Cruiserweight division and 205 Live is the equivalent of the Divas division before the four horsewomen came along, but he was pushed as the clear star of it and he had a decent run in NXT prior to that. Plus it's still early days in his WWE career, I'm sure once he'd run his course with the Cruiserweights he could easily have moved to a nice steady upper mid-card spot and maybe even be placed in a headlining spot on occasion if only for his ability to always have a great match.
