Neville will finally have his opportunity to officially claim his title of The King of the Cruiserweights when he challenges Rich Swann for the Cruiserweight Championship at Royal Rumble 2017.
At Roadblock: End of the Line, Swann successfully defended the Cruiserweight Championship against TJ Perkins and The Brian Kendrick. Following the match, Neville made a surprise return to seemingly congratulate his old friend. However, Swann’s elation was swiftly and brutally quelled by an all-out assault from Neville. Declaring himself The King of the Cruiserweight, the British competitor has refused to relent until he proves himself to be the pinnacle of division.
On the inaugural episode of WWE 205 Live, Swann defeated Kendrick to win his first Cruiserweight Title. Since then, he has displayed the heart of a champion, defeating both Kendrick and Perkins in respective singles matches and in a Triple Threat Match.
Regardless, Neville truly considers himself the Cruiserweight others should strive to emulate. The King of the Cruiserweights is also stepping into the squared circle with a chip on his shoulder, believing that he was kept out of the Cruiserweight Classic because there would be no competition at his level. Now he has a chance to prove once and for all that he is The King of the Cruiserweights.
Prediction: a new year comes a new champion, with the run Neville is on, I think we are to see a new Cruiserweight champion, Neville to win.
