Latest update on Neville’s status

Neville WWE

Former Cruiserweight Champion Neville allegedly being unhappy with WWE and walking out of an episode of Raw was one of the most talked about stories of last year.

At one point, it was reported that he has had some positive talks with the company but things broke down again, leaving fans wondering about his future.

During the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer was about the latest update on his status and if he is still under contract.

Answering it, Meltzer revealed that the former NXT Star is still bond with a WWE contract. The belief is that the company will not grant him a release and he’ll have to sit through the remainder of his contract.

Though Dave couldn’t reveal when his contract expires so it’s hard to say how long it will take before Neville can return to Indies.

    If that ever shows up. It wasn’t looking like it would happen last I heard. Hopefully that changes.

    I doubt he has the money to lawyer up. His problem is, or partially at least, is that 205 was a downgrade in the pay scale, and I doubt he was on big money even when on the main roster.
    I also think that as most WWE talent are not employed by WWE, but are considered independent contractors, that he has very little leverage as the contract he signed would more than likely have more than enough stuff weighed in WWE’s direction with regards to the pay structure being “flexable”.

    if i’m Neville and want out of the WWE really bad, then i better lawyer up like CM Punk did to fight the WWE system. but unlike Punk, the Lawyer won’t be suing WWE for royalities and all that good stuff,but instead sue WWE for now releasing Neville and costing him more money if he’s currently unhappy with the pay WWE is giving him for just sitting at home and being on the shelf for non-medical/injury reasons.
