Vince McMahon Gave William Regal His Blessing To Use His Name In AEW

Despite letting Regal go, McMahon tried to give respect to Regal as he walked out the door to the competition.

While speaking during a K & S WrestleFest virtual signing, Regal revealed that he owns the name, but was prepared to stop using it if Vince McMahon told him to. However, McMahon actually gave him his blessing to use the name.

“I own William Regal but if Mr. McMahon asked me not to use it, I wouldn’t use it … I’d be just Steven Regal. He gave me his blessing. No problems with me and Mr. McMahon at all.”
