The Wrestling Observer website is also reporting about the rumors surrounding Neville. We noted earlier that WWE denied to us that he quit the company but that there were people in the wrestling business that believed that he did indeed walk out and quit before Raw. The Wrestling Observer story also noted that WWE has officially denied to them that Neville quit.
His last match was a 10/1 live event in Casper, WY in a match against Enzo Amore and he had been wrestling Amore at several recent live events before last week. His last TV appearance was on the 10/2 episode of Raw that featured Kalisto joining the cruiserweight division.
Again, we don’t have many details on what went down before Raw on Monday night, but we do know that the original plan was for Neville to face Enzo Amore at the end of the show. Amore was supposed to win the match and go on to defend the Cruiserweight title at the WWE TLC pay-per-view. Things were switched around and Kalisto ended up winning the title on Raw. It was explained on this week’s 205 Live that Amore would be invoking his rematch clause and would challenge Kalisto for the title at the TLC PPV.
We should find out within the next 24 hours if Neville has indeed quit the company. He’s been a bright spot in the cruiserweight division so hopefully, WWE can convince him to stay. We’ll pass along updates as they become available.
This was Neville’s last tweet:
This ATROCITY is not on the NEVILLE LEVEL.

Several wrestlers, including Will Ospreay and The Young Bucks, have commented on the rumors:
If it’s true. Could we finally see The Man That Gravity Forgot Vs The Aerial Assassin.
