Could he be coming back?

What's the story?

Neville walked out before Raw on October 9th and after that, the rumors started flying. Some people said he was upset about creative, his paydays, and royalties for such things like video games and DVDs. Now PW Insider is reporting WWE is in talks with Neville in an attempt to get him to come back to the company very soon.

In case you didn't know...

Neville used to leave crowds awe-struck as he traveled the world's independent wrestling scene as Pac. When he debuted in NXT he soon found himself as NXT Champion and was a huge part of the early stages in NXT's evolution into the amazing organism it is today.

But since debuting on the main roster, Neville didn't experience nearly as much success.

He fought against a "Mighty Mouse" gimmick Vince McMahon wanted to stick him with and soon found himself as the King Of The Cruiserweights. Unfortunately, being on 205 Live had its drawbacks and Neville soon saw that the didn't like the writing on the wall he was reading and decided to leave.

The heart of the matter

Sources in WWE have pretty much no-sold Neville walking out of the company and this new report from PW Insider might have some promising news for fans of the British Superstar.

If things go well, some sources in WWE believe that Neville could be back by the end of the month. One source commented that he could be back by the end of the week although PW Insider was unable to confirm this was the case.

After all, Neville is still under WWE contract and it is really up to Vince McMahon on how long Neville is going to remain able to work but not allowed to do so because he's under a WWE contract and not wrestling for them.

What's next?

There was hope that if WWE kept Neville under contract that a "road could be paved" between the two sides and from the sounds of it, something might have been worked out.

It would be great to see Neville make a return to WWE television. It would be even greater for him to lock horns with Pete Dunne which could always be a possibility at this point since The Bruiserweight's main roster debut in Manchester.

Author's take

Neville has always been one of my favorites and even though he was mismanaged, none of it was his fault. Actually, he gave it his all and although his skill might have been overlooked in favor of people with more body mass; there's really nothing more beautiful than a perfectly executed Red Arrow.
