Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville - now known as Pac in AEW - left Vince McMahon's promotion in Oct. 2017, due to dissatisfaction with his place in the company.
Pac was reportedly displeased with his spot in WWE and walked out, never returning to the promotion again. WWE refused to grant him an early release, but he officially parted ways with the company last August and signed up with AEW earlier this year.
But as it turns out, Pac didn't leave WWE without giving the chairman a piece of his mind. One "caller" reportedly told to Wade Keller of PW Torch (h/t Ringside News), Pac engaged in a "crazy shouting match" with McMahon and even "flipped out" on him before leaving WWE.
Pac must have felt good about getting a final word in before leaving the company, and he has a great position in AEW. The promotion has added many other notable former WWE talents, including Chris Jericho, Cody & Brandi Rhodes and perhaps Jon Moxley - better known as Dean Ambrose during his time in WWE.
Of course, Pac isn't the only person who grew disgruntled in WWE. Back in January, it was reported that The Revival and Mike and Maria Kanellis requested to be released from their contracts. Luke Harper recently did the same, but WWE hasn't granted either talent a release - though The Revival did turn down new contract offers.
On top of that, Sasha Banks hasn't appeared in WWE since WrestleMania 35 - having grown frustrated after her and Bayley dropped the Women's Tag Team Championships to The IIconics. It's unknown if Banks will return to WWE at this time. But at either rate, she is one of the many talents that hasn't been afraid in voicing her displeasure with the company.
What This Means
We'll have to wait and see if Banks, Harper, the Kanellis couple and Revival follow Pac's lead and show case their displeasure to Vince - and if it'll lead to them being let go. But the bottom line is that some talents aren't afraid to show they aren't happy in WWE, and Pac is a prime example of how speaking your mind and standing up for yourself - even to the chairman - can lead to bigger things.
