One Superstar may be in line for a big push.
That Superstar is Nevile, who has been under contract with WWE since 2012. He started out in WWE's developmental territory NXT under the name Adrian Neville, and before to that, competed on the independent scene under the ring name Pac.
While under the NXT banner, he is one of the three Superstars to win the NXT Tag Team Championship twice, with his first reign being one-half of the inaugural champions with Oliver Grey and the other reign with Corey Graves. He is also a one-time NXT Champion. In 2015, he was placed onto the main roster and was later drafted to Raw in the 2016 draft.
In 2017, he went on to win his first main roster title by defeating Rich Swann for the Cruiserweight Championship at the Royal Rumble PPV (pay-per-view). He worked his first WrestleMania by successfully defending the championship against Austin Aries on the pre-show.
After losing the championship to Akira Tozawa in August 2017 on Raw, he won it back at SummerSlam. This marked him being the first two-time Cruiserweight Champion during this current era.
Before he joined WWE, he started his wrestling career in North East England with a small promotion, the Independent Wrestling Federation (IWF). He has competed for such promotions in the United States such as Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), Ring of Honor, Chikara. While on the indies, He is a former PWG World Tag Team Champion, and winner of PWG's inaugural Dynamite Duumvirate Tag Team Title Tournament (with Roderick Strong).
As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw in Ontario, California at the Citizens Business Bank Arena, Enzo Amore, who defeated Neville to win the Cruiserweight Title at No Mercy, hosted a very special celebration for his Cruiserweight Championship victory.
The segment ended with Neville taking out Enzo in the middle of the ring. Prior to the segment airing, Amore had Raw General Manager Kurt Angle sign a non-contact agreement. This meant that no one on the roster was allowed to touch him during the segment. Obviously, Neville clearly broke this contract as he destroyed the champion.
There has been speculation that WWE may have done this to get Neville away from the Cruiserweight division all-together. The belief is that Angle could use this breach of contract as a way to fire Neville from 205 Live and then let some time pass to lead to being signed by SmackDown GM Daniel Bryan and be placed on the Smackdown Live roster.
What are your thoughts on this speculation? Should WWE put Neville on SmackDown? Have YOUR say in the comments section below, and the fourth episode of GiveMeSport’s WWE podcast is here!
