• Former WWE Star Reveals Why He Left – “I Was Worth More Than Being Jobbed Out To Jobbers”

Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville did a Q&A on Instagram and answered questions regarding why he left WWE, his issue with Enzo Amore & more.

Below are the highlights:

Why did you leave WWE?

“They killed the king and gave the crown to a wannabe rapper.”

What would you have done differently, from a booker’s perspective?

“I would have kept me the champ and not lose twice to that pathetic bastard of a man.”

Why did you leave WWE? We all miss you.

“I disagreed with my booking.”

How was Vince?

“Powerful man. Won’t say much though he’d sue me 4 times in a row.”

What if you met Enzo in the streets?

“Black Arrow. Done.”

How long would Enzo last in a real fight with you?

“It wasn’t really Enzo why I left, I don’t hate the lad. He was just annoying backstage and putting the title on him was bad, especially beating me. I was worth more than being jobbed out to jobbers so that’s why I left.”

So it’s safe to say that you and Enzo weren’t best friends like he said?

“Like I said, I don’t hate the lad. Just disagreed with the booking.”

Do you hate WWE?

“No, they gave me the opportunity to shine and shine and I did. The lads over there are great, but they ran out of ideas for me so I left.”
