• DX Member Comments On A Possible In-Ring Return After Recent Offer
During a recent edition of X-Pac 1,2,360 podcast, Old School WWF Veteran and D-Generation X member X-Pac talked about Neville’s return to pro-wrestling, on his possible in-ring comeback & more.
Below are the highlights:
On Neville’s return to Pro-Wrestling:
“I am guessing that he’s not gonna put all his eggs in one basket. The thing these days is not to do that, it’s to have a lot of different things going on. That’s just not wrestling folks, that’s life these days, anything you’re doing, diversify.
Do not give one particular entity all the power… Anywhere that he shows up is a huge positive for whatever promotion he turns up in… The only reason you’re not talking about him as the best in the world is because he hasn’t wrestled in a while. Watch him enter that conversation rather quickly moving forward.”
On a possible in-ring return after NWA Vice President Dave Lagana offered him a match:
“After Dave came on the show, he mentioned to me if I was interested in participating and I put some serious thought into it. And I am just not sure right now, not that I won’t be in the future. Just like with the Battle Royal at ALL IN.
Maybe sometime in the near future, I’ll feel comfortable doing that. I am comfortable going and having matches but on a bigger stage and that many people watching, I’d want to be sharper.”
On if he would like to face NWA World Heavyweight Champion Cody Rhodes:
“Of course in my mind I would but I’d have to have some singles matches before I even think about that. I talked to Nick Aldis in private about it or he mentioned it to me and when he did I thought about it.
And I am like I don’t think I can do it, you know, do it justice at that time. I am grateful for that and it’s flattering and it makes me feel good.”
