A high-flyer from Newcastle upon Tyne is taking the WWE by storm.
Neville made his Raw debut in March and has since battled some of the top wrestlers in the company, including John Cena, and wowed fans with his array of dazzling moves.
During an interview with Sky Sports, the 28-year-old spoke about his first few weeks on the main roster, his lengthy stint in NXT and now is a ‘phenomenal’ time for wrestling.
Plus, the devout Newcastle fan opened up on a tough Premier League campaign for the Magpies and which footballer he reckons would thrive in the ring…
How much fun are you having on Raw and Smackdown?
Too much! I am having the time of my life. This is all I’ve ever wanted to do with my life but, now that I am doing it, it is a little bit surreal. I had been in NXT for two and a half years and felt very well prepared and ready to go, so when WWE finally pulled the trigger it was the start of something I had been waiting for a very long time. I debuted the night after WrestleMania 31 and I will remember that feeling for the rest of my life. It was fantastic.
You’ve started off at the deep end wrestling the likes of John Cena and Seth Rollins…
I have been incredibly fortunate to be thrown into the mix straightaway and you can’t ask for more than that as a newcomer. It is such an opportunity to wrestle those guys, as well as Dolph Ziggler and Sheamus, and it is something I was adamant I was going to grab with both hands.
