The rumors are flying about Neville walking out of Raw and saying he quit. The reasons behind Neville unexpected quitting have varied from not wanting to lose to Enzo to being mad he is not on Wrestlemania DVD. Personally I could care less about his motive, this type of attitude does not belong in the business. Wrestling works the best when everyone together is looking out for the whole company and not putting themselves above the product. You know what happens when we have wrestler thinking that the show should revolve around them, we have WCW Hulk Hogan at the end or the whole run of TNA with Double JJ.
Now, the heat involving Enzo as champion is ridiculous in my opinion. If you work in the back and not see what Enzo is bringing to cruiser-weight division is insane. Enzo may not have the technical ability like Neville, but when Enzo is in the ringing people pay attention. In the end WWE is no like NJWP, it is not all about technical ability. You need be able to capture the crowd with the story. Don’t get me wrong Neville King of the Cruiser-weight run was awesome, he reinvented himself and held the title for most of the year. The problem is even with Neville great run as champ, people were not watching 205 live. Enzo made people watch, so dropping the title to Enzo is not an insult its doing what is best for your program. With Enzo as champ, every other wrestler on 205 Live can be showcased more which helps the brand. If Neville does not understand that, than fine leave go back to the indies. Because there is no place in today’s WWE for someone thinks they are to good to lose to anyone. Look at the greats that have lost to Jinder, who is terrible and you do not see any of them quieting that is because they are professionals.
Neville, leave WWE we will not miss you, go be the hero for all the indie nerds. Maybe you can join the Bullet Club or win the ROH title or as I call it the WWE unemployment line.

With Wrestlemania around the corner its once again time for the WWE to pick its 2017 inductees into the WWE Hall of Fame. As always there are going be some real stinkers with one or two truly deserving recipients. When you think of the Hall of Fame you should think of legends such as Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, and Stone Cold Steve Austin. However, when you look back last couple years we such “greats” as Rikishi and Godfather. The Hall of Fame should be the last stop for the wrestlers that influenced and made positive contributions to their art. It seems now that Hall of Fame may just become a stop for wrestlers that were liked within the company. If you look at the NFL they always induct their greatest athletes and I mean GREATEST. Not the athletes that were most liked or cherished, but the best of the best. Now I am not diminishing what Rikishi and Godfather did during their times in the WWE, I just do not believe it was Hall of Fame worthy.
We look towards this years Hall of Fame, it has been reported DDP will be inducted. At first I was against this decision. I thought does DDP deserve the Hall of Fame recognition, I started looking over DDPs record. He had a career spanning three decades and numerous titles. Does how many belts you have won dictate a place in the Hall of Fame? In that case Roman Reigns and Sheamus are already in a place to be inducted in the Hall of Fame, but in my opinion at this moment neither of them deserve a place inside the golden halls.
I am still conflicted on the idea of DDP making in the Hall of Fame at this moment I think he deserves over most. I am more worried on who is next if WWE wants to induct 5 or 6 wrestlers a year. My feeling is the unworthy may start entering more than the worthy. When this becomes common place, the Hall of Fame will be meaningless.
