For someone like Neville or Aries, it’s also to their benefit that their in-ring style, whether you call it the cruiserweight style or workrate wrestling or super indie wrestling, is what’s dominating indie shows and drawing in fans. Someone like Cody Rhodes, who, while talented, was not necessarily associated with that style before quitting WWE and tweeting a list of dream matches he wanted to have, quickly became the biggest attraction in indies before recently becoming ROH exclusive. Neville, who had extensive indie and international experience (under the name Pac) before WWE and was working a more indie-compatible style while regularly showcased as WWE Cruiserweight Champion in the last year, should be able to do whatever the hell he wants.
WWE contracts typically range from developmental contracts to multi-year deals.  WWE describes most personnel as " independent contractors ".  Personnel on the main roster appear on specific brands such as Raw and SmackDown , while they can also appear on WWE's primary weekly television programming such as Main Event , and Total Divas as well as pay-per-views , and on untelevised live events . 205 Live is a weekly program exclusive to cruiserweight competitors (205 lbs and under), who are assigned to the Raw brand.
As part of the LoGrasso-Singleton proceedings, lawyers for the WWE have subpoenaed Bennet Omalu, the neuropathologist who first identified CTE, seeking to have him turn over his research on Chris Benoit and other deceased wrestlers. Omalu claimed that a posthumous examination of the brain of Benoit, who hanged himself after murdering his wife and son in 2007, revealed CTE, and the physician has been studying the brains of more recently deceased wrestlers such as Joanie "Chyna" Laurer, Jonathan "Balls Mahoney" Rechner and Brian "Axl Rotten" Knighton.
