  3. Former WWE star Neville returned to wrestling

Former WWE star Neville (Benjamin Satterley) made his return to wrestling earlier today in Tokyo, Japan at a Dragon Gate event at Korakuen Hall.

Neville, going under his former ring name of PAC, joined the R.E.D. stable teaming with Eita to defeat Shingo Takagi and BxB Hulk during the main event.

The former NXT and two-time WWE Cruiserweight Champion spent nearly a year away from wrestling after quietly departing WWE last year.

Back in August, it was reported that Neville was no longer under contract with WWE. Paul “Triple H” Levesque didn’t have an answer during an NXT media call a week earlierregarding Neville’s current status with the company going forward.

After the main event concluded at today’s Dragon Gate event, Neville said he was back and asked if the fans remembered him. He said that while he may resemble someone they once knew, he is now a very different man and that was bad news for Takagi.

Dragon Gate has already announced that he will be back on November 6 at Korakuen Hall. Working under his ring name of PAC, he debuted for Dragon Gate back in 2007. He would go on to sign with WWE in 2012 where he remained under a deal until last year.
