The rumors began with a fan on Twitter who claimed he knows someone who works in WWE. The rumor was then posted by the Pro Wrestling Votes Twitter account but Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet fueled the rumor of Neville asking for his release when he noted that Neville did walk out of the show before it began. Satin adds that his release has not been confirmed but their sources indicate that there is some truth to the story.
We noted earlier today via PWInsider that original RAW plans had Neville facing Enzo Amore for the WWE Cruiserweight Title in last night's RAW main event. Those plans were changed and Kalisto ended up defeating Enzo for the title. Satin notes that Neville was scheduled to lose to Enzo in their match.
Stay tuned as we will keep you updated on Neville's status. It should be noted that Neville quitting doesn't mean that WWE has or will release him.
