Last fall, it was widely reported that Neville was unhappy with his creative direction. He allegedly walked out of the October 9th, 2017 episode of Monday Night Raw after learning that he would have to lose to Enzo Amore on the show.
Instead of releasing him, WWE opted to keep him under contract. This prevented the Man that Gravity Forgot from working with other promotions.
Neville reportedly had a few rounds of negotiations with WWE over the past year. Unfortunately, nothing ever came of it and one of the top wrestlers in the world has been needlessly sitting on the sidelines during the prime of his career.
No word yet on what is next for Neville. It goes without saying that he will have no trouble finding work and is definitely a talent to keep an eye on in the months ahead.
