Neville will challenge Rich Swann for the Cruiserweight Championship at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
Swann issued a challenge to Neville after he made his return against Tony Nese on 205 Live tonight. Neville came out after the match and talked about being coronated and how Swann was on borrowed time as champion. Swann said he was still running the show as long as he was the Cruiserweight Champion, so he would let Neville pick the time and place to prove he couldn’t handle this.
Neville said it was only right that he was coronated as King of the Cruiserweights on a big stage, and told Swann they would meet at the Royal Rumble in San Antonio.
