William Regal’s contributions to the pro wrestling world can never be understated. Lord Regal is considered a genius in the business and it is not hard to see why.
On last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, MJF told Wheeler Yuta about how he could always go up to William Regal and say, “Hey Willy, can you teach me how to pop pills?”
While speaking on his podcast, “Gentleman Villain, William Regal responded to MJF’s words and made it clear that he couldn’t care less.
Do you think I care? I call myself out a thousand times over about what I’ve done with my life. I’ve canned it when I was younger, I’ve proper gone out there and hammered life and got up to all kinds of stuff that you would never get. 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But I’m through it and it’s really, 22 years out of date.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.
MJF will continue to get under the skin of many people, as that is unlikely to ever change. If anything, at least William Regal is in a much better place in his life.
