MJF has been considered one of the defining heels of the current generation of pro wrestlers, and it is not hard to see why. MJF became a huge star in AEW in a short time and has far exceeded expectations.
On last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, William Regal and MJF engaged in a promo battle where fans hung onto each and every word. It revealed how Regal ultimately crushed MJF when he was trying to join WWE.
In fact, MJF stated that he wanted to end his life after Regal sent him that email. While speaking on the “Gentleman Villain” podcast, William Regal revealed that WWE stopped him from emailing MJF.
“This is Darren, now. This isn’t William Regal,” Regal said. “First of all it’s bothered me, but it hasn’t bothered me. What I said was real the other, ‘If all it took was for you to get an extra email that I told you not to send me to get you this fired up, to get you this good at what you’re doing, job done! It actually is sad that you’ve let that be a problem for you for seven years.
He doesn’t remember this, it’s common knowledge now. Not long after we met, I had two bleeds on the brain and I was completely isolated.
I was having treatment because I was having three weeks amnesia and two bleeds on the brain, and they stopped all emails coming to me.
There was a lot of people,” Regal continued. “Ricky Starks being one of them,Sammy Guevara being another person that I just sort of went on the missing list for a long time. You don’t hear them moaning about me.”
At 19, again I don’t consider you a kid, maybe if you are you’ve had too much of a sheltered life,” Regal mused. “Maybe at 19, maybe that’s showing you he wasn’t ready. If one email gets him that upset, imagine him turning up at WWE’s P.C. and he’s got to do five days a week and maybe get told off a little bit, and maybe things not go his way. Things have worked out very well for him.”
MJF is set to challenge Jon Moxley for the AEW World Title at AEW Full Gear in November. We will have to wait and see whether MJF ends up winning the title or not.
