William Regal Says Original Plans For AEW Role Never Transpired – Regal took part in an interview with Scroobius Pip released on Wednesday. During the show, the 54-year-old said the last few months in AEW felt as though there was too much focus on him and not enough on the talent he was with.
There’s a lot that happened this year, there’s also a lot of things that have made me go, ‘I’m quite happy being not in the limelight,’ and I have been for many years. I had my time.
The last little few months in AEW was getting far too much about me and it should have been about the talent that I was with, not about me. I’m quite happy being in the background.
Regal would continue to say he was brought to AEW to work in a capacity other than being talent but this role “never transpired.”
I couldn’t have a better last few months as far as TV and doing that but I didn’t go there with that intention. The intention was to do something different and it just never…it started off the way it did but I didn’t expect it to end up being this thing that it was for the last several months where I just became talent.
I went there with a different plan because I was asked to go there to help out in a different capacity and that never transpired.
Regal debuted for the promotion at AEW Revolution on March 6, 2022. He quickly became aligned with his former student Bryan Danielson as well as Jon Moxley, who he worked an FCW angle with in 2011-12. They would form the Blackpool Combat Club along with Wheeler Yuta and Claudio Castagnoli.
