Neville Reportedly Set For WWE Return

WWE seem to have patched things up with the former Cruiserweight Champion.

Positive discussions between former Cruiserweight Champion Neville and WWE have lessened the likelihood of him leaving the company, and could even see him return to action by the end of the month - according to a report by PWInsider.

The Newcastle-born high-flier saw a huge career resurgence after being shifted to 205 Live, turning heel and steamrolling multiple opponents as champion of the cruiserweight division.

However, shortly after dropping the belt to Enzo Amore, Neville disappeared from television. He was last seen competing at a house show on October 1st, and hasn't appeared on WWE programming since the September 26th edition of 205 Live.

This prompted huge speculation that Neville had walked out of a Raw taping, after being asked to again lose to Amore - although reports claiming this to be false also emerged. It was claimed that the Brit and Enzo are good friends offscreen, and that such a fallout was unlikely.

However, something certainly seems to have happened to sour the relationship between Neville and his employers. He was quietly removed from the opening credits of 205 Live, and simply stopped appearing in storylines, despite being considered by many to be the star of the cruiserweight division.

This disappearance also came hot on the heels of Austin Aries' departure from the company, an incident thought to be due to extreme dissatisfaction on the wrestler's part. As a fellow cruiserweight - as well as Aries' opponent on the WrestleMania 33 pre-show - it seemed likely that Neville was undergoing a similar situation.

However, recent reports now claim that the air has cleared considerably, and that Neville could be set for a return to television by the end of the month. PWInsider cited one source that claimed he could return as soon as tonight's edition of Raw, but conceded that they were unable to confirm this themselves.
