William Regal shocked everyone when he showed up at AEW Revolution PPV. Soon after, he formed the Blackpool Combat Club with Bryan Danielson and Jon Moxley. However, that storyline was short-lived as he turned on Moxley at AEW Full Gear, helping MJF win the AEW World Championship in the process.

Just when it looked like fans would get to see both men pair up on AEW programming, MJF turned on William Regal by attacking him from behind with Regal’s brass knuckles. This resulted in Regal being stretchered out of the arena. After this segment, many fans started speculating that Regal was perhaps leaving AEW for WWE.

Dave Meltzer has now confirmed on Wrestling Observer Radio that William Regal’s last day with the company was this past Wednesday on AEW Dynamite.

“Regal’s gone. It’s not like maybe he’s gone. I believe that’s his farewell.”


Dave Meltzer also confirmed rumors that William Regal is headed back to WWE. Meltzer also stated that while Regal signed a short-term deal with the company, Tony Khan must’ve given him an out.

“I believe there’s going to be something on Wednesday’s show where there will be something addressing certain things. That story is supposed to keep going in some way. But he is going back to WWE. That’s just the deal. I’ve had so many different people tell me so many different stories. The primary source story was that his contract was short-term. The WWE side says that he had an out

The closest thing to what I would say is official would be he signed a short-term deal. Others say he had an out or Tony gave him an out. Whatever it was, I certainly know that when he signed it was a 3-year deal supposedly and nine months now it’s over. It sounds weird,” Dave Meltzer stated.

While AEW fans may be disappointed that they aren’t going to see William Regal in AEW, WWE fans must be excited that Regal will soon be back with the company. We will have to wait and see if Regal returns to NXT to resume his previous role, or will Triple H make use of him on the main roster.
