- As seen on this week's RAW, WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann called Neville to the ring ahead of their match at Sunday's Royal Rumble pay-per-view. In the Fallout video above, Swann says Neville has been blindsiding him for week but that's not what a king does or what a man does. Swann thought Neville was going to be a man and fight him but Neville dropped down from the ring, so Swann gave him a taste of his own medicine. Swann walks off after mentioning the Royal Rumble.
"I am so happy to hear that Kurt is going to be inducted," Trish said. "He is one of the industry's best in the ring and had one of the most memorable (and lovable!) characters! I am honored to have had the chance to work with him and call him a friend."
"I remember before I made my debut I was submitting storyline/character ideas to the office and one of them involved Kurt. I recall being backstage, newly signed, and pitching it to him – he must have thought 'yeah, I want to align myself with you, newbie. I'm good thanks', she laughed. "I was pretty excited when they pitched me our storyline, what a great character to work with – a classic!"
