A former WWE Superstar has said that William Regal apparently regretted joining AEW due to a “maturity issue” with the company’s management.
William Regal looks set to be heading back to WWE less than a year after he was released from the company. A lot has changed in the wrestling landscape in that time and Regal will return to a company now headed by his close friend and the man he helped to build NXT, Triple H.
On the November 30th episode of AEW Dynamite, the AEW World Champion MJF attacked Regal from behind with a punch loaded with brass knucks. Regal was taken away in an ambulance as a way to write him out of the company, just nine months after he made his debut at Revolution.
Recent reports also added that Regal was now “gone” from AEW ahead of a return to the company where he spent the best part of two decades.
Speaking on The Wrestling Outlaws, former NXT and IMPACT star EC3 said he had heard that William Regal regretted his decision to join AEW due to a “maturity issue” in the company’s management:
“When he went over to AEW, the word was he said ‘I immediately regret this decision, there’s very much a maturity issue here within management.”
It is believed that William Regal will recommence his WWE duties – although it is unknown exactly what they will entail – in the new year.
