Sami Callihan Says Neville Was Not Given Enough Respect from WWE

Posted By James Walsh on 10/12/17


Sami Callihan weighed in on reports that Neville had asked for his WWE release and more in a new appearance on the Wrestling Inc Podcast. Highlights are below:

On being part of MLW: One-Shot: “That MLW show was something special. I remember going back and watching when I was in high school. I used to get all of the MLW DVDs from Suncoast video, when people still used to go and buy their own DVDs. I remember the Extreme Horsemen, I remember all my favorite ECW guys, I remember seeing all of the top indie guys. And MLW, at one point, was my favorite promotion to watch. Getting a chance to be part of the rekindled MLW was something really awesome, really special, and I think they’re onto something.”

On how the show went: “It went amazing. Usually shows in Orlando suck. I’m not gonna lie: it’s hard for a company to draw a show in Orlando. I don’t know if they don’t know how to advertise, I don’t know if they just don’t book the right talent, but this place was packed to the gills and it really looked awesome on camera. I’ll compare it to an old school tv taping setup, where they just pack as many people as they can into this small building and made it look amazing. MLW did just that. Just their production quality…I just watched the video on demand service of it, and there are not a lot of companies on the indies that have that kind of quality to make it look like it really is Major League Wrestling.”

On the rumors that Neville asked for his release: “They told me and I was like, I don’t know if that’s real or not. I guess we’re going to have to wait and see…He didn’t get the proper due that he deserves, man. He looks like a Greek god and he legitimately, no one on the planet can do what he does. They could be pushing him as a heavy weight; it’s not like he’s just a cruiserweight. The dude is legitimately one of the best technical, one of the best high flyers, one of the best strikers, and over the past couple of years, he’s brought his promos up to that same level. His promos are amazing right now. And for him to not be like pushed as a top guy is absolutely sad.”
