William Regal was released from WWE this week in a surprising move. He was not the only person in the Performance Center who lost their job this week. Others who were handpicked by Triple H were also let go. Now Regal is finally breaking his silence.

Ringside News exclusively reported that the firings this week were personal. Triple H is no longer a part of the brand and they wanted to make that very clear. William Regal was brought over to NXT where he played an important role until the brand changed to NXT 2.0.

William Regal tweeted out a thank you to WWE for an amazing 21-year run. This was a fantastic journey, but now he is moving on to the next chapter. He also made it very clear that he doesn’t want to hear WWE bashing from fans over his release.

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 [word] 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.

We will have to see where William Regal ends up next. His days in the ring might be over, but he can still provide a very valuable resource to any other company out there. We will certainly keep our eye on what he does next.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
