William Regal’s run in AEW may well have come to an abrupt end after seemingly being written off television following an attack by MJF on this week’s Dynamite.
It has been less thank two weeks since William Regal betrayed Jon Moxley to help MJF capture the AEW World Championship at Full Gear, but whatever AEW officials had planned for Regal following this major storyline development may well have been scrapped.
Reports have circulated over the last few days that suggest Regal may be set to end his AEW tenure, possibly as soon as this month, and return to WWE.
Bryan Alvarez Gives An Update On William Regal’s Situation
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez gave an update on what he has heard in regards to William Regal’s current situation:
“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 rumours 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.”
“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.”
