William Regal Has Left AEW, Wednesday’s Dynamite Was His Final Day

MJF turned on William Regal by attacking him from behind with Regal’s brass knuckles this past Wednesday. This resulted in Regal being stretchered out of the arena. After this segment, many fans started speculating that Regal was perhaps leaving AEW for WWE. Much has been made about what kind of contract Regal had with the company, but it appears he is done in the promotion.

Dave Meltzer has now confirmed on Wrestling Observer Radio that William Regal’s last day with the company was this past Wednesday on AEW Dynamite.

“Regal’s gone. It’s not like maybe he’s gone. I believe that’s his farewell.”

“I believe there’s going to be something on Wednesday’s show where there will be something addressing certain things. That story is supposed to keep going in some way. But he is going back to WWE. That’s just the deal. I’ve had so many different people tell me so many different stories. The primary source story was that his contract was short-term. The WWE side says that he had an out

The closest thing to what I would say is official would be he signed a short-term deal. Others say he had an out or Tony gave him an out. Whatever it was, I certainly know that when he signed it was a 3-year deal supposedly and nine months now it’s over. It sounds weird,”

We will have to wait and see if Regal returns to NXT to resume his previous role, or will Triple H make use of him on the main roster.
