It marked Neville’s first appearance in the ring since he defeated Ariya Daivari on WWE’s 205 Live on Sept. 26, 2017, before then-cruiserweight champion Enzo Amore attacked him:
Pro Wrestling Sheet’s Ryan Satin reported in October 2017 that Neville had grown frustrated with his role. As of August 2018, Neville was no longer under contract, according to Satin.
However, WWE executive Triple H did not rule out a return for Neville on a conference call in August, calling the 32-year-old “one of the most talented guys in the world.”
Per WrestleTalk’s James Dixon, PAC has been booked for Dragon Gate’s Nov. 6 card.
