William Regal’s contributions to the pro wrestling world are something no one can deny. Regal is heralded as one of the greatest minds in pro wrestling and he has always proven this fact. He is also very loyal to Vince McMahon.
After his WWE release earlier this year, William Regal made his debut in AEW during the AEW Revolution pay-per-view. Regal is now leading the Blackpool Combat Club along with Jon Moxley, Bryan Danielson and Wheeler Yuta.
While speaking on the latest episode of the “Gentleman Villain Podcast,” William Regal talked about his relationship with Vince McMahon. Regal made it clear he will always be loyal to McMahon for saving his life.
“I’ve always known he’s my boss, so I have never got too friendly with him because I knew … one day, he might want to fire me. I’ve had an incredible, always polite, great working relationship with him,” he said. “Whatever I did or however I felt in WCW, it had gone by the time I got to WWE, and I was never that way inclined, to be honest, but it was just a, ‘What do you need? Yes,’ and I am happy.
I will always have a loyalty because without Mr. McMahon’s okay, I would have died in 1999. So, I owe him my life. When I had my neck surgery, he might not have even known but it was his company that paid me to get the best surgeon, the only surgeon in the world who could do the surgery that I needed.”
Regal will forever be grateful for his many years in WWE. Regal simply has a new goal in mind and will set about accomplishing it in AEW and that is what matters to him right now.
