There are no plans to add Neville to the WWE cruiserweight division on the Raw brand at this time, Wrestling News World has confirmed. When the division was first implemented, there was talk that he could be a current main roster star to go down and work in the new 205 lbs. and under division.

Sin Cara is one main roster star that was “signed” to WWE’s cruiserweight division.

As for the future of WWE cruiserweights, in addition to being a staple of the Raw brand, they will also be featured on the new "205 Live" show that will premiere later this month on the WWE Network. That show will be centered around WWE Cruiserweight Champion Brian Kendrick, TJ Perkins, Rich Swann, Noam Dar, HoHo Lun, Credric Alexander, Lince Dorado, Gran Metallik, Tozawa, Jack Gallagher, Guru Sihra and Harv Sihra. The top three cruiserweights in the company are Kendrick, Perkins and Rich Swann.

While there was talk of implementing a second cruiserweight division on the blue brand, it appears this new series, which will follow Smackdown each Tuesday night, will be the company's way of doing that. Remember, as we reported on WNW Premium, Lince Dorado was a worker that was being saved for a potential cruiserweight division on Smackdown until Vince McMahon scrapped the plans.

205 Live will add 52 hours a year of the live original in-ring programming to the WWE Network and will air Tuesday nights at 10 PM ET on the WWE Network.
