William Regal’s contributions to the pro wrestling world are something no one can deny. Regal is regarded as one of the greatest minds in pro wrestling and he has always proven this fact. He also addressed reports of backstage drama in AEW.
Things have been turbulent in AEW for the past couple of weeks. In addition to a slew of injuries, the company also has lot of drama involving CM Punk. In addition to that, there were even more backstage issues with Thunder Rosa, Eddie Kingston and Sammy Guevara.
While speaking on Gentleman Villain Podcast at AdFreeShows.com, William Regal seemingly addressed the backstage drama in AEW while stating that the Blackpool Combat Club will remain professionals.
“There’s always a lot going on with us,” he began. “We’ve talked talked about on this show before. We are trying to do our bit to change the views of some people, and younger talent.
Sometimes there’s things that play out on the show, but in reality, there’s the fact that we understand there’s a lot of young talent and they don’t get to wrestle better wrestlers, or people who have been in this for a long time, because the way the job has become, and the way TV is. A lot of the best wrestlers wrestle each other now.
I can’t say too much at the moment,” he continued. “I’m not a gossip merchant and I’m not going to dignify anything that comes out. Nothing seems to happen around me, I’ll put it that way. I know that myself.. Jon’s Jon, and that’s the way he is. But, I know myself, Claudio, Bryan and Wheeler, are all doing our thing. Hopefully it spreads, and as far as trying to be the best professionals we can be, that’s all you can do, and do whatever we’re tasked with.
We’ve got a great team of talent and we want to make people have to face people in the BCC. and we are also hoping that it sets sort of standards of how to conduct yourself, and .. this is sort of in reality, just how to conduct yourself as a pro, and not. Let’s put it that way.”
Christopher Daniels also recently claimed that everything is fine in AEW. Regardless, it remains to be seen whether the situation in the company will get better or not.
