Neville Talks About Being The King Of The Cruiserweights And Never Getting 'Trampled All Over' Again

Neville was recently interviewed by NOLA.com, and he responded to the questions in character. He talked about a match he had with Kevin Owens in New Orleans last year, and about why he's the King of the Cruiserweights.

Last year, Neville and Owens had a great match on Raw that Neville recalls not-so-fondly:

"I've had a few matches with Kevin Owens. I can recollect him taking advantage of me somehow underhandedly and me being walked and trampled all over and allowing it to happen. I look back at those matches and kind of see myself as a fool, a little bit too honest.

"That's all I think about when I think about my past matches. In the future, it's going to be different, and you're going to see it clear in front of your eyes."

Last night on 205 Live, Neville challenged Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann to a Title Match at the Royal Rumble in San Antonio on January 29th, and Swann accepted.

He was asked about why he calls himself "King of the Cruiserweights," and he says it's not just a moniker, it's a reality.

"King of the Cruiserweights is not just something I say. Let me be straight. I am the king. You can see that. It's undeniable. You watch the show and you can tell, I'm a league above the rest of the cruiserweights. I want that to be known. This isn't just a label. This is a fact. I am the king."

Neville also discussed his time with NXT, knowing Rich Swann for a long time, his thoughts on New Orleans and more. You can check out the full story at this link.
