Sean Waltman Expects Neville to Keep His Options Open, Talks Potential In-Ring Return

Sean Waltman spoke on his latest podcast episode about Neville’s return at Dragon Gate, his own possible return to the ring and more:

On what he expects Neville’s plan to be after Dragon Gate return: “I am guessing that he’s not gonna put all his eggs in one basket. The thing these days is not to do that, it’s to have a lot of different things going on. That’s just not wrestling folks, that’s life these days, anything you’re doing, diversify. Do not give one particular entity all the power… Anywhere that he shows up is a huge positive for whatever promotion he turns up in… The only reason you’re not talking about him as the best in the world is because he hasn’t wrestled in a while. Watch him enter that conversation rather quickly moving forward.”

On his potential return to the ring: “After Dave [Lagana] came on the show, he mentioned to me if I was interested in participating [in NWA] and I put some serious thought into it. And I am just not sure right now, not that I won’t be in the future. Just like with the Battle Royal [at “All In”]. Maybe sometime in the near future, I’ll feel comfortable doing that. I am comfortable going and having matches but on a bigger stage and that many people watching, I’d want to be sharper.”

On whether he’d be interested in facing NWA World Heavyweight Champion Cody: “Of course in my mind I would but I’d have to have some singles matches before I even think about that. I talked to Nick Aldis in private about it or he mentioned it to me and when he did I thought about it. And I am like I don’t think I can do it, you know, do it justice at that time. I am grateful for that and it’s flattering and it makes me feel good.”
