Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville was finally granted his release from the company last month and is now eligible to wrestle anywhere he’d like. Per a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Neville has gone “off the grid” and isn’t responding to calls from promoters.
PWInsider reported that Neville was spotted in Pittsburgh around the time he was granted his WWE release. WWE often sends their talent to Pittsburgh for medical testing, which makes the timing rather interesting. Neville was reportedly previously in talks with some promotions, but due to legal issues, he said he wasn’t yet ready to begin
Neville reportedly left WWE after being upset with creative and initially tried to obtain his release in October of 2017. Initially, WWE didn’t grant the request because the company didn’t want to set a precedent that talents could just walk out while under contract to other promotions such as New Japan Pro Wrestling – where it was expected Neville would be going.
