WWE Exclusive: Adrian Neville's Mum Reveals All As He Returns Home to Newcastle
MTV sits down with the Jumping Geordie and his mum Jill for a chat about the boy from the Toon who has become a global WWE star...
NXT superstar Adrian Neville may be one of WWE’s most spectacular high fliers and hang in the ring with some of the world’s toughest bruisers - but he still loves his mum.
The Jumping Geordie, 28, paid a visit to his family home in Newcastle during WWE’s most recent UK tour and MTV was with him for an exclusive tour of the stomping ground where the man with the dazzling moves grew up.
Adrian’s lovely mum Jill invited us in for a brew as she told us tales about the former NXT champ’s childhood, including how he was rewarded with a Hacksaw Jim Duggan action figure for behaving himself at the hairdressers.
But with locks down to his shoulders nowadays, what would it take for him to get a chop now? A Brawlin’ Buddy?
And what does Jill “store up like a squirrel” to remind Adrian of home when she visits him in the US?
