I think this was a case of he got a bit moody due to not getting his slice of Wrestlemania royalties due to being on the pre-show and then that combined with maybe a bit of a ego over his fairly low position on the card. Then I think someone who had left WWE or someone thinking about it got in his ear about the money he can make on the indie circuit as well as the freedom he’d have with his booking as well as being seen as a big star. Then when he was told he’d be jobbing to Enzo Amore by this point a now very pissed off Neville just saw red and stormed out.

Thankfully it seems he’s cooled off. I know many including myself see the Cruiserweights as toilet break tv but he was booked as the clear star of the division for a long time and it gave him the chance to show he could excel in a heel role. Think it was pretty clear he would be moved back to the heavyweight division eventually only this time with an enhanced status thanks to his performances as a Cruiserweight. He should have seen his loss to Enzo as perhaps the beginning of that as once he was done with that feud perhaps that would be his time to head back to the heavyweights, I’ve always said a move to Smackdown would have been good for Neville to distance himself from 205 Live.

Whatever the reasons I’m glad it’s looking likely he’ll be staying. He’s a great in ring talent one of the best in the world, and he’s now showed he does have some personality as well. WWE shouldn’t be letting him walk away easily.

another guy who could really do with a mouthpiece.

he could have been okay in the US or IC picture, but if he's not prepared to do the job, he shouldn't get rewarded at all, and the fact that he skipped the taping would, if I were a promotor, be a major issue that would stop me booking him. it's not like he's going to bring in huge numbers anyway.

Neville could be staying with the WWE after all.

It’s been well documented that the former Cruiserweight Champion was initially scheduled to lose to Enzo Amore in the main event lumberjack match on Raw in mid-October. However, plans changed to Kalisto wrestling Amore when Neville never showed up to TV that week. WWE has officially denied that he quit the promotion.

At the time, it was reported that Neville was frustrated by the direction of his character, the lack of pay-offs and the rough WWE life on the road. The former WWE Cruiserweight Champion has reportedly been “miserable in WWE” since January of this year. It’s been reported that Neville had pushed for his WWE release with the idea of working the indies and making a name for himself there.

In an update, PWinsider is reporting that there have been recent positive discussions between Neville and the sports entertainment company. There is a belief among some that Neville could actually be returning to action for WWE before the end of the month. It’s also possible that he could return as soon as this week.

Glad it's worked out, but he does need to stop being such a moany bitch when he's had it so good.
 
After dropping the title I would have promoted him to a better brand. But because of his ball home behaviour I hope his return is back to 205 Live.
 
He needs to at least have the original fued with Enzo considering he's not had his title rematch yet.

See I'd favour WWE on both occasions.....

CM Punk was a indie mark deep down who felt he should be main eventing Wrestlemania with guys like Daniel Bryan, he hated that WWE pushed guys like Roman Reigns and hated even more that the best spots went to part-timers like The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar.

What annoyed me about Punk was he whined and complained about stuff that has been happening in WWE for years and will continue to happen, the big name stars are proven draws and all things considered he had a very good hall of fame WWE career and had little to complain about. He just sulked because they have what he felt should be his Wrestlemania pay day to guys like The Rock and Brock Lesnar.

I think there is more to this Neville story, he may not have had the best of times so far but it's not been all bad, the Cruiserweight division and 205 Live is the equivalent of the Divas division before the four horsewomen came along, but he was pushed as the clear star of it and he had a decent run in NXT prior to that. Plus it's still early days in his WWE career, I'm sure once he'd run his course with the Cruiserweights he could easily have moved to a nice steady upper mid-card spot and maybe even be placed in a headlining spot on occasion if only for his ability to always have a great match.

I wonder if he's going to get the CM Punk treatment from the fans??? I mean, I really don't see how this is any different from what CM Punk did.

For the record, I lean towards favoring CM Punk in his departure... Example: 

Where 5 is neutral, 1 is completely in favor of CM Punk, and 10 is completely in favor of the WWE, I'm at about a 3.5

As far as Neville is concerned I'm at about a 4 right now.

Quote  Regarding Neville's WWE status, sources have confirmed that he walked out of Monday's RAW in Indianapolis before the show hit the air. The plan was for Neville to lose to WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore in the non-title Lumberjack main event. The match ended up having Enzo drop the title to Kalisto.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Neville walked out when he learned of the loss he was to take. This was a last minute decision made by Vince McMahon, reportedly because no one could come up with a better idea at the last minute, they put the title on Kalisto instead of having Enzo defeat another cruiserweight. The Observer adds that the current plan is to get the title back on Enzo. The title change could come at the October 22nd TLC pay-per-view when Enzo receives his rematch.

Neville's status with the company is still up in the air but it's believed that he's gone. One source close to the situation insists that he's 100% gone. As noted yesterday, WWE is officially denying that he quit and the official word is that he's still with the company. His profile remains on the WWE website as of this writing but we will keep you updated.

Seems very much like he has gone if these close sources are to believe

Its a shame really because he has been one of the standout performers within the whole of WWE lately

Hes obviously not happy with the direction of either the division or his character - im not sure where he will get the same level of coverage - yes he could go to TNA and probably have multiple title runs but he isnt going to get the mainstream coverage or money that hell be getting within WWE

Despite the lack of interest in 205 Live Neville has emerged as a standout talent and showed previously unseen personality in his heel role, he was the highlight of the Cruiserweight division but his matches were still booked as pre-show offerings mostly.

Then Enzo comes along as alll of a sudden 205 Live features in the Raw main event. Maybe this was just a eye opener for Neville and perhaps his future booking called for him to put Enzo over.

I think it would have been smart to have Neville lose to Enzo again but then move him to Smackdown away from the Cruiserweights and push him as a strong mid-card talent.

Maybe he got a look at his future booking?

I mean if he was told: "We don't have any plans for you anymore" then on top of everything else I could definitely see that as reason enough to want to go.

I suppose not only Enzo should be on the watch list but Kalisto too. lol

I agree and if he has quit i think that should really be that for 205 live 

It would be interesting to know why hes quit - my guess is that he feels he should be on the main shows as opposed to in the 205 division and part of my reason for thinking that was when Enzo used the fact hes been in the third hour twice and also the fact he requested the title defense was in the main event

Like adders said - hes been booked well in the matches hes worked - for me it can only be that hes unhappy at not being on the main shows
