Neville's future in WWE uncertain after walking out before Raw

The future of Neville in WWE seems to be uncertain.

Sources confirmed to us that Neville walked out before Raw on Monday and appeared to have quit the promotion, though WWE has officially denied that he's quit. Monday's Raw featured Kalisto winning the Cruiserweight Championship from Enzo Amore in a lumberjack match, with Neville not appearing as one of the lumberjacks. He also wasn't on 205 Live this week.

Dave Meltzer noted on Monday night's edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that Kalisto facing Amore wasn't originally planned for Raw and that the match was supposed to happen for the first time at TLC. Plans for the show had called for Amore vs. Neville in a non-title match before they were changed.

Neville's last appearance on television was during the segment where Kalisto joined the cruiserweight division on Raw last week. His last televised match was against Ariya Daivari in the main event of the September 26th episode of 205 Live, though he worked a few house shows after that.

Whether Neville's time in WWE has come to an end remains to be seen. We'll have more on this story as it develops and in this week's edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

if true, this makes the second "fan favorite" wrestler in the last few months to walk out of WWE due to the hellhole that the cruiserweight division is.

It will be interesting to see what affect this has on company moral in general, especially with guys like Cody (and, to a lesser extent, Swagger) making a decent living on the indies and being treated as stars (and we all know that's what will happen with Aries and Neville as well, plus it worked for Galloway and Hero). Does a guy like Apollo Crews stick around once his contract comes up? If Dolph Ziggler's contract had been up a few months ago, would he have renewed? Does this make someone like Ricochet decide that going to WWE isn't worth it? This could have a similar effect to the ROH exodus in terms of shattering this illusion of the promised land, which will certainly work the benefit of indy wrestling in general.

Ricochet only wants money and to be a celebrity like the Rock, so there's no stopping him, but names like Crews, Tozawa, Itami, or Sombra are guys that I could totally see getting out if they all end up having to be chasing guys like Enzo and Elias. Guys like the Bucks and Cody really make it seem easier to be out there
