Claudio Castagnoli Addresses William Regal Leaving AEW

Reports of William Regal’s AEW exit took the pro wrestling world by surprise. Claudio Castagnoli, who was mentored by Regal as part of their Blackpool Combat Club storyline, reacted to the reports as well.

The former Ring of Honor World Champion commented on Regal’s departure from AEW while speaking with Joey Hayden of Dallas Morning News.

“I mean, I guess we have to … we have to wait and see. You know, we’re still talking, I think we have to have a little group meeting to figure out what’s next, or if there’s a next. So yeah, I’ll leave it at that.”
