William Regal Issues WWE Statement

William Regal’s WWE release came as quite a shock to the wrestling world and saw some of the biggest names in the sport – such as Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch – come forward to offer their own, personal tributes and thank you’s to a man who helped mold many performers and launch a thousand careers during his time with NXT. Yet, we heard nothing from William Regal himself on the subject, and a fair few of us wondered how he was feeling towards the WWE after his sudden departure. Well, wonder no longer.

Yesterday, William Regal took to Twitter to release a statement on his time with the WWE. He said;

Thank you to @WWE for a wonderful 21 year run. You gave a lad who was happy and in wonderland wrestling on a carnival have a charmed life for 21 years. No complaints and please no one waste time replying as I won’t have a bad work said against the company.

I will add that @WWE saved my life in 1999 when they didn’t need to, kept my family fed and took me all around the world. You have my gratitude forever. You allowed me to live a charmed life.”

William Regal is a class act. How many of us have been let go from a place of long-term employment and had nothing but good things to say about the company? I doubt it’s very many. I sure as hell know that I haven’t. I’m still not allowed in most branches of Tesco. But William Regal is a different animal and has nothing but praise for the WWE.

I doubt very much that William Regal will be out of work for very long. In fact, I suspect he’ll only be without gainful employment for as long as he chooses. So after taking a few weeks off – nearly 21 years of straight working for the WWE should at least allow him a short holiday – he’ll be back to the grindstone, helping turn another generation of young wrestlers into household names.
