William Regal Calls Damien Sandow “The One That Got Away”

Regal has only positive things to say about Damien Sandow.

William Regal has always had an eye for talent. Regal is currently in AEW and apart of the Blackpool Combat Club on TV, but before this, he was apart of WWE as NXT’s General Manager and was a talent scout for the performance center. Now, on the most recent episode of his Gentleman Villain podcast,William Regal spoke on Damien Sandow, calling him one-such Superstar. Regal continued by saying that while Damien Sandow is never guaranteed to be at the top of the car, he found him to be “magic.” He also compared Sandow’s ability to that of his own.

I do believe Damien Sandow was — he was far better than his career ended up being, Damien Sandow was absolutely magic and special in everything he was given. If anything, that’s why I liked him so much, he was like me. Is he going to be the top guy like Seth Rollins, Jon Moxley, and Roman Reigns? Maybe not. Is he going to be a perfect player on your show, do anything, and make anything work? Yes.

Regal continued by saying he believed Sandow would have a high level job in wrestling “forever.”

I don’t like to say certain things but that was — I always thought that he would have a job in wrestling, at a high level, forever. When I say ‘high level,’ I mean in a top company, because he could do anything and blend in with anybody. He can pull off good comedy, and I like to consider myself one of those. he was just brilliant at it, the others have gone on to do well. The guys you mentioned became The Shield and look what’s happened to them. They were all great and I think the world of all of them. They were all great to be around at that point in time. In FCW, there were always polite, respectful, asked the right questions, and did the right things. Damien Sandow was just the one that got away.
