More Backstage News on a New Gimmick for Adrian Neville, Which WWE Star It Might Be Similar To

– We’ve noted how multiple sources confirmed that WWE officials have talked about bringing NXT star Adrian Neville to the main roster soon with a kid-friendly gimmick inspired by the famous Mighty Mouse cartoon character. One report even had Neville wearing a mask on the main roster.

In an update, the Mighty Mouse inspired gimmick is the current plan for Neville but he will not be wearing any kind of Mouse suit and the character was described as more similar to the late former WWE Hardcore Champion Crash Holly.

In a trivia note, when the late Chris Candido first came to WWE in the mid-1990’s, WWE wanted to give him a similar gimmick inspired by Mighty Mouse. They even had a costume made up but ended up putting Candido in The Bodydonnas team instead.

Regarding Neville, there is no call-up date set but they are looking at bringing him to the main roster this spring. WWE still has a few more matches they want to do with Neville in NXT.
