William Regal discusses MJF taking a shot at him during a recent AEW promo.
During a heated confrontation on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, MJF told Blackpool Combat Club member Wheeler Yuta about how he could always go up to William Regal and say, “Hey Willy, can you teach me how to pop pills?”
It is no secret William Regal has a history of substance abuse with the Englishman being open and honest about his past troubles. On a recent edition of his Gentleman Villain podcast, Regal gave his reaction to the jibe:
“Do you think I care? I call myself out a thousand times over about what I’ve done with my life, I’ve cained it when I was younger, I’ve proper gone out there and hammered life and got up to all kinds of stuff. I had a blast and I was out and then I did some dreadful, awful things.
“But I’m through it and it’s really, 22 years out of date. He needs to update his material, but I just play into it, it’s a part of me now, William Regal, it’s a part of me that I am this old rouge that has done this and that, whatever it is it plays into this character that I just turn into. Nowadays you can’t really do that, there’s much less room for error. MJF has got something going, he’s figured out whatever it is, he’s got something going.”
William Regal has been with AEW since debuting in March this year. His debut led to the formation of the Blackpool Combat Club which currently consists of AEW World Champion Jon Moxley, Bryan Danielson, Claudio Castagnoli, Wheeler Yuta and Regal.
