Reports: WWE Considering a Huge Role For William Regal

William Regal is a key member of the WWE staff, widely regarded as one of the greatest minds in professional wrestling. The veteran talent has excelled both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. Word now is that the company may be planning another big surprise for the WWE Universe involving Regal.

Regal’s 22-year run with World Wrestling Entertainment ended on January 5, 2022, when he was released while serving as the on-screen NXT General Manager and the Director of Talent Development & Head of Global Recruiting. He joined AEW months later but left at the end of 2022 to return to NXT to work with his son, Charlie Dempsey. Tony Khan granted the conditional release, stipulating that Regal was not allowed to appear on WWE TV for one year. Regal officially returned to WWE in January 2023 and has since worked as Vice President of Global Talent Development.

The “Man’s Man” returned to TV this past January to appoint Ava as the new NXT GM. He also appeared at NXT Roadblock as his son, Charlie Dempsey, celebrated his Heritage Cup Championship win. However, Dempsey lost the Cup to Tony D’Angelo earlier this month. On this week’s show, he compared the loss to losing a part of himself and declared that he needs to regain the Cup. The 27-year-old emphasized that his No Quarter Catch Crew faction, which includes Damon Kemp and Myles Borne, needs to operate with more structure, similar to The D’Angelo Family.

The return of William Regal to the NXT storylines has been rumored for some time. A report from Fightful Select now reveals that there have been creative pitches for the 2008 King of the Ring winner to serve as a mentor to the No Quarter Catch Crew. These internal pitches date back several months, and there is now speculation that officials may soon pull the trigger on this new on-screen role for Regal.

During the aforementioned backstage segment on this week’s NXT show, Myles Borne offered to take out Tony D’Angelo, but Charlie Dempsey had another plan in mind. Dempsey then booked Damon Kemp to face D’Angelo on next week’s Battleground go-home show, with the Heritage Cup on the line.
