Tony Khan confirmed William Regal’s departure from AEW, during the pre-ROH Final Battle call on December 7th. He revealed that the wrestling veteran wanted to return to WWE to work alongside his son, Charlie Dempsey. William Regal has now shared a farewell message for his Blackpool Combat Club faction ahead of his departure from AEW.
It was previously reported that Regal is on his way out of AEW after he turned on Blackpool Combat Club member Jon Moxley during the November 19th Full Gear pay-per-view. Regal has now said goodbye to Moxley, Bryan Danielson, Claudio Castagnoli, and Wheeler Yuta via Twitter. Regal shared a link to a lyric video for Slade’s Far Far Away.
To the members of the BCC. My favourite song by my favourite band who somehow knew when I was a child to write the story that is my life. It’s been a pleasure fellas. We’ll meet again…
The previous WWE regime released Regal from his contract in January, after more than two decades with the company. He made his AEW debut at the Revolution pay-per-view in March. It compelled Moxley and Danielson to team up and form the Blackpool Combat Club.
On the December 7th edition of Dynamite, Regal made what appears to be his final AEW appearance. Best wishes to Regal on his new endeavor. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Ringside News.
