Default Neville - a tragic accident waiting to happen?

Look, this guy is obviously a great athlete. But I can't help but feel that he takes too many risks. One day, after a long flight and a week with a bug on his chest, he's gonna have an off moment and land on his head. If not that, it'll be an opponent failing to receive one of his many spot moves correctly, injuring Neville, the opponent, or both.

I don't marvel at the guy, I just wince, waiting for something tragic. I don't care how skilled or co-ordinated you are, 300 days of that a year for many years presents plenty of opportunities to be that split second off when it matters most.

Your thoughts?

Well he's been doing it for over a decade now and I'm not seeing any history of injuries with him.

I think you're being over-dramatic. He's not doing anything any more dangerous than any high flyer has done for the past 20 years.

Every move done in the ring can be dangerous if done incorrectly, some take more chances than other's do. I would hope that those that do know what they're doing, but yea shit happens.

Neville has spent years doing what he does, and he does it well. He's not some backyard wrestler jumping off the roof of his garage. He trained with people who know what they're doing, and by the looks of things they did a pretty good job of it.

You have to know your own body and it's limitations as well. If I did a Red Arrow, I would end up looking like a pretzel, so yea wouldn't even attempt it. But I can bash you pretty good around the head with my purse, something maybe Neville wouldn't be able to do.

I understand the concern of Neville becoming a tragic accident waiting to happen, but if the WWE is not telling this guy to tone down his style then they must be really confident in this guy's ability to have a consistent performance night in and night out considering all the risks. I'll admit I have that feeling too whenever I see Neville perform, but I just have to keep remembering the fact that he's been doing this for a long time consistently, and that the WWE has confidence in him in taking the risks involved. Besides, the WWE would not place their confidence in him if he was inconsistent.

Neville will never take a bad fall because gravity forgot about him.

Sure, anything can happen at any moment. But Neville is a professional. Not to mention, he is an athlete on a whole other level. Of all the matches I've seen from Pac/Neville over the years, I've never once seen him even slightly be off on a move, let alone not hit it perfectly. If you ask me, you're reading too much into the dark side here. Neville is really freaking good, and I doubt that we'll ever see him mess up. And if Neville starts losing it, I think he'll be smart enough to adapt and not do whatever he can't physically do.

There's no more risk of Neville being a "tragic accident" than any other high flyer. Look at someone like Jeff Hardy. When he was throwing himself off ladders and cages every few weeks I was sure he'd end up with a career-ending back injury of some kind. Or Mysterio moonsaulting off the ropes to the floor- one slip and he could be paralysed.

But it's not just high flyers who can become seriously injured- look at Droz! Paralysed for life because of a botched move in the ring that he'd taken many times before. Wrestling is a dangerous sport.

However, Neville is extremely skilled and one of the smoothest high-flyers I have ever seen. I've every confidence that he won't be regularly bothing the red arrow or any of his other high risk moves.

He's at no more risk that ANY wrestler on their roster as so sadly proven by El Hijo De Perro a few weeks back. If it's your time, it's your time and if a simple dropkick can do it, then why worry about doing the high risk stuff?

Neville has been doing this a LONG time, his rep was built on wrestling that style in indie rings that are not of the quality of the WWE ones and he never had issues. His platform for the leap is the most stable he's ever had, he doesn't "rush" the move, making sure he has footing... so if anything happened it'd be sheer luck. That being said...

They have referenced it in commentary that they guy has somewhat of a prodigious talent when it comes to spatial awareness and control of his body mid air and this borne out in seeing him in action. The chances are he knows that move backwards and has "an out" if he feels it going south.

At the end of the day, he is comfortable doing it, perhaps more so than anyone yet... WWE trust him implicitly, it's arguably why he spend so long in developmental, they wanted to be sure... and he's reaping the rewards... pretty sure he ends up King Of The Ring tonight, winning with...a Red Arrow... suddenly dropping Adrian makes some sense... King Neville...already got the cape too...
