Could William Regal be returning to WWE?
Recently, there’s been a load of speculation surrounding the status of William Regal with All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and him potentially making a comeback to WWE. With the situation, neither anybody from AEW or WWE has commented on the matter, and Regal himself has been quite as well about the rumors. However, WWE sources are thinking that he’s on the way back to the company.
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez spoke about Regal’s deal with AEW. Alvarez noted that he wasn’t confirming anything, but he is relaying what sources have told him. Joining Wrestling Observer in reporting on Regal has been Fightful Select and PWInsider.
“I don’t know what is going on with William Regal but this is what I can tell you. I believe, and I was not told this outright but I’ve kind of been given the indication that that was the end of William Regal on AEW on last night’s show. that was writing him off the show, he was beaten up by MJF, he was taken out on a stretcher, and he was taken away in an ambulance. I believe that we are not going to see him again on AEW.”
“He originally signed a multi-year deal that was going to be up in the spring. For the last several weeks, there have been a lot of rumors about William Regal. It started a little bit before that but people really started talking about it when they did the segment after he turned on Jon Moxley. Jon Moxley got in the ring, they had the face to face and Moxley told him ‘walk and never come back.’ He walked. A lot of people believed he was never going to come back…I was not outright told that he was gonna come back but I kind of was given the impression that there would be more with William Regal.”
Alvarez continued talking about Regal’s future which is likely with WWE.
“Again, I want to make this clear. I have not been told outright that he is gone but based on several things, I believe he’s gone. He’s no longer going to be in AEW. I don’t know this for a fact that he is going back to WWE imminently but this is what I can tell you for a fact.”
“The belief among people within WWE is that when he signed with AEW, he essentially had an agreement where if Triple H returns to power, he can go back to WWE. And Triple H is now back in power. The belief within WWE is that is what is going on. He is going back to WWE and it was part of an agreement that he made when he signed and Triple H is now back in power and so William Regal is returning. Whether this is the case, we will I’m sure find out soon enough.”
Lastly, another point that Alvarez made is that a reason Regal would want to go back to WWE is that if he returns to working in a backstage role then he would be home in Florida and not have to travel.
