Backstage Update on Neville Requesting His Release from WWE

Backstage Update on Neville Requesting His Release from WWE

During the mailbag segment of today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer was asked about the status of Neville and if he still remains under contract with WWE.

Meltzer confirmed that Neville still is under contract with WWE and still wants his release from the company. The feeling is that the company won’t release him and Neville will have to wait the remainder of his contract out. Meltzer couldn’t elaborate on when his contract expires.

Previously it reported via PWInsider that talks between WWE and Neville were on good terms and he could be returning to the company. That’s no longer the case now and Neville wants out.

    let him go. If the man wants out , let him go

  • TheVoicz

    All that hype for this guy just to eventually leave.

    Imagine my shock from marks who know nothing about what the business is about itself.

    • Zachary Whitney

      Last I checked, the business was about business. It’s hard to make money when you consistently run off talent that fans (or as you call them, marks) actually care about and whose merchandise they’re willing to purchase while promoting people that few people actually care about.

      • TheVoicz

        He was a spot machine. There wasn’t anything marketable about him, apparently you really don’t know business in general.

        • Zachary Whitney

          A wrestler’s in ring style has little impact on their marketability. What matters is their ability to connect with the crowd and generate revenue. You can know 1000 moves and have 5 star match after five star match, but if you don’t generate revenue, your company can go out of business. A business exists to make money at the end of the day. If the talent accomplishes this task, then all other factors are secondary. Rob Van Dam and Jeff Hardy are/were spot monkeys, but they were charismatic and generated revenue for both their employer, for example.

          • TheVoicz

            Rob slowed down though, he knew that. He knew was marketing was. My point to pointing that out that Neville wasn’t going to be big like all these dumb marks thought he’d be.

            The Kool-Aid is strong with internet kids who just thinks it’s “cool” at that point and time, rather than the long term of things.

    • Sen. Clay Davis (D)

      Says the biggest mark here… You know nothing about the business lol… Gtfoh

      • TheVoicz

        Says the person who’s actually been in the business for 7 years, who actually knows what WWE actually does want, and not some fag ass rock hard cock such as yourself blowing your own shit on your face because some fucking spot machine can flip around like Cirque Del Solei.

        BECAUSE THAT’S CLEARLY SOLD REALLY WELL IN A MARKET PLACE LIKE THE WWE.

        Fucking cunt.

        • Sen. Clay Davis (D)

          Backyard wrestling doesn’t count as being “in the business” lmfao. You’re a lame aśs Mark

          • TheVoicz

            Says the Obama clone for his main pic. Talks like a liberal, imagine my shock to what he speaks of, and doesn’t know in Wrestling. I was in OVW for 3 years you cunt.

            There are more people out there who aren’t “famous” on TV to know what the business is about, what it will be about, and what will make it money you faggot smark.

            You couldn’t of ever survived training with Les Thatcher in a week, fatty.

          • Sen. Clay Davis (D)

            Obviously you e never seen the wire… You weren’t in ovw for 3 years, maybe as a fan going to matches. Why do losers like you come bee and lie? What do you get out of it? I survived 10 years in the army “fatty” 😂😂 I’d be willing to bet you’re 16 and you molest your sister

        • Zachary Whitney

          Curious. What’s the largest house that you’ve worked in front of?

          • Vance

            Probably just his mom and sister at his house. Tremble in fear because this guy is “famous.” So famous he can’t reveal his own identity, and Sen. Clay Davis (D), GO ARMY (remember to wear your PT belt).

  • Mal

    Might as well do stuff on upupdowndown. So sad, he was great, reinvented himself. He could have been a heyman guy. There is 3 hours of RAW but they have to use Reigns and Rollins on multiple segments.

  • daleh33

    I guess sit back and collect the easy money since no other company could pay you what the WWE does. Gives him time to let nagging injuries heal and work on making himself even better.

  • George DE ANIMAL

    WWE should just release him from his contract. It makes no
    sense to pay him & have him do nothing. It shows just how
    childish and immature vince has become.
    If he wants to leave, let him leave!
    These kind of moves are what will eventually make wwe
    the no. 2 promotion behind NJPW.

  • ♋•†Γ!plΣb2k1•♋ – WGU

    What happened to being professional & honoring the contract you signed and legally obligated to?

    • Vance

      Talent can request an out, just like any other contract, but there are generally penalties to it.

  • I_amSovereign

    WWE will keep him until his contract expires so he doesn’t sign with another promotion
