Neville no longer under contract with WWE


Neville is out of his WWE contract after nearly a year of dormancy.

Pro Wrestling Sheet first reported last night that Neville is no longer under a WWE contract. WWE has since confirmed the news, with Dave Meltzer noting that Neville is free to wrestle elsewhere now.

Neville stopped appearing on television in October of last year and hasn't been seen in pro wrestling since. Reports indicated early this year that negotiations to bring him back had stalled, with WWE opting to freeze his contract and keep him under his contract indefinitely until he either returned to WWE or negotiated a release from the company. 

Neville had been with the WWE since 2012, first starting out in NXT and becoming champion of that brand. He was called up to the main roster in 2015 and was moved to the cruiserweight division towards the end of 2016, winning the Cruiserweight title twice.
