Home / Updates on Neville, Cruiserweight Tag Titles, & Hiroyo Matsumoto

Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville has not wrestled a single match in nearly a year. The British high-flyer requested his released from WWE last year, but the company did not grant his request until earlier this summer. Neville is reportedly free and clear to work wherever he desire now, but the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter claims that he had been telling promoters that he would be unable to work future shows due to legal issues. Lately, he has gone completely “off the grid” and has not been speaking with any promotions, wrestlers, or anyone who has attempted to reach out to him. It was also noted that Will Ospreay was pushing for a match against Neville at NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom event in January, but that may be off the table now.
205 Live is a show that has only one championship for the stars of the series to fight for. Although plenty of 205 Live wrestlers have been worthy contenders for the Cruiserweight Championship, fans have been wondering why the tag teams on the show don’t have their own set of championships. According to Cageside Seats and BeltFanDan, who has broken stories about upcoming titles in the past, WWE did commission designs for Cruiserweight Tag Team Championships and photos of those designs were even shared online earlier this year. However, the Twitter user has just confirmed that WWE decided to scrap all plans to introduce the titles due to how the 205 Live brand has been performing all year long.

Arguably one of the most impressive performers included in a wide range of talented women in this year’s Mae Young Classic tournament has been Hiroyo Matsumoto. The Japanese wrestler stepped into a WWE ring for the very first time in her career during the Mae Young Classic show last night, and she was able to defeat Rachel Evers to move on to the second round. After her win, she took part in a brief interview backstage and said that she is not finished dominating the competition in this year’s Mae Young Classic tournament before stating her plans to invade NXT next. WWE already signed Mia Yim due to her performance in this year’s tournament. Perhaps Matsumoto could be joining the company soon as well.
