WWE Neville ‘Being a Newcastle fan is part of my identity’
Neville is a WWE wrestler based in the United States and has earned the nickname ‘The man that gravity forgot’, due to his high flying style.
Neville previously wrestled under the name Adrian Neville and some time before that, was born Benjamin Satterley, resident of Newcastle Upon Tyne.
A massive Newcastle United fan, Neville was this week’s guest of Mark Lawrenson, asked by the BBC pundit to do the challenge of predicting all of this weekend’s Premier League results.
No surprises to hear that 29 year old Neville has predicted a 2-0 home win for United over Leicester.
Neville speaking to BBC Sport:
“Being a Newcastle fan is part of my identity.
“Having NUFC and being able to support them while I am overseas means the world to me.
“Growing up I had so many heroes. I have got fond memories of everyone from David Ginola to Alan Shearer and Robert Lee.
“Then there was big Pav Srnicek, our rock in goal for many years, who lived near my estate when I was a boy. I used to ride to his house on my bike just to see his car’s number plate ‘Pav 1’.
“I’m not sure if you remember Asprilla’s goal celebrations, but they are very similar to the ones I do in the ring so we would complement each other very well.”
