There are bound to be stories whenever anyone departs one company and ends up in another. When William Regal decided to depart from AEW a lot of people figured that he was going back to WWE, where his good friend Triple H took over as Chief Content Officer.

William Regal ended up in WWE, where he is now an executive. He’s working behind the scenes for WWE right now, because it was part of his AEW release that he cannot appear on television for the remainder of 2023.

In a multiple tweet release online, William Regal let everyone know why he decided to leave AEW. It all had to do with time.


Just so anyone who wants to know the truth. I know Tony summed up a few conversations we had with quick answer. FYI, Tony called me at 9 pm on a Sunday night and I discussed my reasons for leaving were time spent where I won’t to be. Then and I only then did he tell me where he was and what problems he was having. I told him to get off the phone and take care off his family and he shouldn’t be talking to me know. I also realise he has summed up conversations with brief answers.

We eventually talked about me leaving 2 weeks later in Jacksonville. Time and time spent was the reasons for my leaving, no agenda for anything else. I have lived through some serious times in 2018/19 and realize time is all I have…

It seems that William Regal has put this issue to bed with that series of tweets. A lot of fans had their own theories as to why Regal left AEW the way he did, but now they should have a lot less questions on the matter.
