WILLIAM REGAL ISSUES STATEMENT ON HIS AEW DEPARTURE
Heartfelt thanks from the leader of the BCC!
William Regal has offered his thoughts on leaving All Elite Wrestling.
Regal's AEW contract contained an opt-out provision, but AEW President Tony Khan had the option to terminate Regal's employment earlier if he so desired. Regal wanted to go back to WWE so he could work with Triple H once more and be with his son in NXT.
Regal’s return to WWE will see him take on a Vice President role in the company. Regal issued the following statement:
“Yesterday was my last official day with @AEW. I’d like to thank @TonyKhan, Megha and all the hard working crew. Contrary to people who’ve never spoken to me or have their information from people who don’t know me or are trying to make themselves noticed,I had a lovely time working there and had a great time. Lots of talented Wrestlers, and lovely people to work for. To my fellow BCC members, it was a special, albeit brief few months but it cemented our already strong friendship. To everyone there, thank you for welcoming me. Best wishes”
