another guy who could really do with a mouthpiece.

he could have been okay in the US or IC picture, but if he's not prepared to do the job, he shouldn't get rewarded at all, and the fact that he skipped the taping would, if I were a promotor, be a major issue that would stop me booking him. it's not like he's going to bring in huge numbers anyway.

I think this was a case of he got a bit moody due to not getting his slice of Wrestlemania royalties due to being on the pre-show and then that combined with maybe a bit of a ego over his fairly low position on the card. Then I think someone who had left WWE or someone thinking about it got in his ear about the money he can make on the indie circuit as well as the freedom he’d have with his booking as well as being seen as a big star. Then when he was told he’d be jobbing to Enzo Amore by this point a now very pissed off Neville just saw red and stormed out.

Thankfully it seems he’s cooled off. I know many including myself see the Cruiserweights as toilet break tv but he was booked as the clear star of the division for a long time and it gave him the chance to show he could excel in a heel role. Think it was pretty clear he would be moved back to the heavyweight division eventually only this time with an enhanced status thanks to his performances as a Cruiserweight. He should have seen his loss to Enzo as perhaps the beginning of that as once he was done with that feud perhaps that would be his time to head back to the heavyweights, I’ve always said a move to Smackdown would have been good for Neville to distance himself from 205 Live.

Whatever the reasons I’m glad it’s looking likely he’ll be staying. He’s a great in ring talent one of the best in the world, and he’s now showed he does have some personality as well. WWE shouldn’t be letting him walk away easily.

Quote With the WWE giving Hideo Itami Neville’s Rings of Saturn finisher, it’s believed that this is a sign that talks of a return between Neville and WWE are more or less dead.

Itami had been using the Go to Sleep, but after Brian Kendrick was injured by the move on RAW, Itami used the submission finish on 205 Live the next night. The hold is the same that Neville had been using during his heel run in the cruiserweight division.
 
Or because the move was a Perry Saturn move, it's not linked to anybody inparticular.
 
Or so if Neville returns he's got a ready made fued going after the guy that pinched 'his' move.
 
Just because Itami used in one match a move recently used by someone else, doesn't mean to me that Neville is definiately not coming back.

Does seem folk are jumping to conclusions here, the move was used by Neville while he was working heel because his red arrow finisher is too crowd pleasing, this could be a indication he is set to return as a face? On the other hand as Admin said there’s no reason why both guys couldn’t use the move and it acts as a heat building device for a feud.

I hope Neville stays in WWE, he’s far too talented for them to just let him slip away.

I pretty much agree with the last two posts. Yes he's been stopped from using the GTS, for now, without being fined but the Rings of Saturn is just an available finisher. Submission finishers are much more heel anyway. 

I do expect Neville to return, but on Smackdown. That said, having a ready made feud seems a likely scenario too. Neville could put Itami over by way of apology and then move to Smackdown in the post mania shake up. 

Vince likes giving people losses as their way of saying sorry. Sends a message to the competition.

And really Neville can’t say that’s not fair. Whatever his reasons he effectively took his ball and went home forcing re-writes of planned storylines, not to mention breaching his contract.

So if they can work out terms for a return I think putting over Itami would be a fair shake before he then switches to Smackdown in a upper card position hopefully as a babyface, much as I enjoyed Neville’s heel work and it showed personality I didn’t realise he had, he’s a natural face with his flashy high flying crowd pleasing ring style.

Quote WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore recently spoke with The Sun out of the U.K. about Neville's WWE traveling schedule and in-ring abilities. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On Neville as a performer and his crazy travel schedule:

"Neville is one of my favorite pros in the business. He carried NXT with that title and was a tag-team champion there. Then he worked the 205 division with the hardest schedule in silence, he was working Friday, Saturday and Sunday and then Mondays and Tuesdays. When guys were catching red-eye flights from the west coast after Raw, Neville was driving on to the next town or taking an early morning flight. It's the hardest schedule in pro wrestling because you are closing out 205 [Live] at the end of the week. I hope Neville comes back and we feud. I have never seen a guy work like he does."

On what Neville is like in the ring:

"He might move better than anyone has ever moved in a ring – like the Dynamie Kid. I have seen him tear it up in matches that no one will ever see – absolute bangers – I would love to move around with him because that dude can dance."

 
Big praise to Neville and well deserved when you look at the schedule he had.
 
All that travel is one thing, but then his nights will have been very late from 205 Live airing at a silly time.
 
It would be nice to think he could be a surprise Rumble entrant.

Neville was my personal MVP for 2017. Consistently had a match of the PPV contender, character work was spot on every single week. And he helped elevate the lesser recognised talents in the "challanger of the month" format that was used during his reign.

A great great guy!!!!!

Latest reports state he has moved out of his Florida home and is now back living in the UK, this doesn’t bode well for any future WWE return.

I really don’t know what Neville’s beef is with WWE, ok maybe he was pissed about playing second fiddle to Enzo in 205 Live but it was clear WWE appreciated his talent and I’m sure they would have moved him out of 205 and perhaps given him a high mid-card position on either Raw or Smackdown.

I loved Neville as a heel but as a babyface he got to show off more of his high flying offence. As a heel he had to tone things down a bit.

I hope he can work things out and return but it’s looking unlikely now.

Quote Neville has moved back to the UK, which at this point pretty much confirms that he's not looking to return to WWE anytime soon. He remains under contract to the company but it is unclear if he's being paid while sitting out.

-- Either way, his contract is "frozen" and it has worldwide implications meaning he can't wrestle for anyone else until the deal expires and that won't happen until he is back on TV (thereby unfreezing his contract) or if WWE grants him his release.

He's a jugged eared idiot. I hope E don't back down with his contract so he ends up skint and loses a lot of money.
 
He's in breach of contract and won't be getting paid because he's not doing what he signed up for.
 
By moving home he's more stubborn than first thought.
