In an update to Neville’s WWE status, the former King of the Cruiserweights has reportedly had “positive discussions” with the company regarding a potential return. Neville has been off television since last month.
There were several rumors going around regarding why he was unhappy, but we’ve heard from multiple sources that Neville grew frustrated with his positioning in the Cruiserweight division and wanted to be featured on the main roster again.
Since that time, WWE has made plans to bring several new faces to 205 Live, including NXT star Hideo Itami and former Impact Wrestling performer Rockstar Spud.
WWE recently released several performers, including Emma, Darren Young and Summer Rae. Neville was not part of that round of cuts, adding to the consensus that WWE remains optimistic a resolution can be worked out.
You’ll recall that Nia Jax had a similar situation to Neville, with reports that she “walked out” of a RAW taping and was unhappy with her creative direction. She returned just weeks later, citing a back injury and WWE rotating the schedules of the talent.
