Tony Khan on William Regal’s departure to WWE
AEW Head Tony Khan in a recent interview after the AEW show revealed on the reason’s behind regals’ departure.
“I got a message from Regal, asking if we could talk. He said I made time to talk to him. I went outside the hospital, I’m sitting on the park bench in front of the Mayo Clinic, and we had this really long and good talk. It was very positive. He really had good intentions for why he wanted to go back, and it made a lot of sense to me why he would want to work with his son and be with his son.”
“He said to me, and it made sense, ‘Given where you’re sitting right now, does it make sense to you why I would want to go back and be with my son?’ At that point, where I was sitting, it really did make a lot of sense and the last thing I wanted to do in that moment was prevent any parent and any child from being together.”
William Regal has been a longtime friend of Triple H who is now the head of talent relations and creative in WWE. Their relationship dates to 30 years and Regal has been supporting Triple H since his career at WCW . Once Regal got into WWE their relationship further strengthened and both are really good friends.
The amin reason for Regal to rejoin WWE is to be with his son Charlie Dempsey who is part of the NXT roster, like the last time Regal will not be on Tv but will be working at a much higher role behind closed doors.
