From the WWE Rumor Mill: Did Neville ask for a release?
Has the King of the Cruiserweights abandoned his throne?
Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that former Cruiserweight Champion Neville may have quit the WWE after Monday Night Raw.
This information broke following a tweet from the Pro Wrestling Votes Twitter account and has yet to be officially confirmed by Pro Wrestling Sheet, but sources have said that Neville did appear to quit the company.
Neville was originally rumoured to be the one to face Enzo Amore in the main event lumberjack match, but "The King of the Cruiserweights" reportedly walked out before the show started and the decision was made to put Kalisto in the match and give him the championship, according to information from Pro Wrestling Sheet.
A report published by PWInsider said that WWE was rumoured to have done multiple rewrites throughout the night to the script for this week’s Raw and this could possibly be one of the reasons why.
Another factor that possibly adds credence to this rumour was the fact that the WWE announced the match between Kalisto and Enzo for the TLC pay-per-view, but ultimately decided to put the match on Raw.
WWE has given away matches before the scheduled pay-per-view occurs, but this rarely happens.
If Neville has left the WWE, he will have ended a five-year career with the company that began in 2012 when he signed to NXT. He is the second longest reigning NXT Champion and the longest reigning Cruiserweight Champion to date.
