We go to an interview from earlier today when Renee Young talked to Neville. Neville enters the room and Renee thanks him for joining her. She asks why did Neville choose to join 205 Live now. Neville asks when is Renee going to ask a real question. WWE scoured the globe for the best talent and he is under their nose. He says that is insane. They did it because he is too good. If he was in the Cruiserweight Classic, there would be no competition. It was discrimination.
Neville says it is not just the WWE, it is the people of the United States. People look at him because of the way he speaks and the way he looks. He says he will use the cruelty to motivate him to be the best.
Renee asks if that is why he is called the King of the Cruiserweights. Neville says he is the king. In Japan, Rich Swann was his young boy. He would cook his food, clean his laundry, and wash his back. Swann idolized him in Japan. Swann may be the champion, but Swann is not on his level. Neville says he is used to facing people who weigh twice as much as him so the Cruiserweight Division will be a dawdle.
Renee asks Neville to explain what he said and Neville tells Renee the interview is over.
