Neville finally made his first pro wrestling appearance since parting ways with WWE earlier this year.
The former WWE Cruiserweight Champion made his return to the Dragon Gate promotion after a six-year hiatus earlier today, aligning himself with Yasushi Kanda and the villainous R.E.D. stable.
In his return bout, Neville pinned Shingo Takagi in Korakuen Hall. He also cut an awesome promo. We have several photos and video footage of the appearance, which electrified the fans in attendance.
Check out photos of Neville’s first match since leaving WWE, and his first match back in Dragon Gate in six years, below.
Guess who’s back?
Back as PAC
