William Regal returns to executive role in WWE

In the last week, the former General Manager of NXT, William Regal, fired last year precisely at the behest of Vince McMahon, along with other NXT executives, such as Road Dogg, Dave Kapoor or Samoa Joe, returned to WWE at the behest of Triple H, who has always considered him one of his right-hand men in NXT.

Apparently, however, Vince McMahon would not have looked favorably on his son-in-law's move, thinking of counter-moves that have not yet been implemented, given that Triple H still has the same power as before. According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, at the moment Regal shouldn't worry about his newly reassigned position, at least as long as Triple H is in creative control of the WWE.

Vince McMahon returned to being the Chairman of the WWE, but the board did not allow him to return to having creative decision-making power. This is how the well-known journalist wanted to speak in his latest Observer newsletter: "The Regal situation is something that everyone is talking about right now.

I don't know if it [the Vince McMahon situation] will affect him. At the moment, Levesque will continue to have the exact same power."

Backstage news on William Regal

In the last few hours, the role that would have been assigned to William Regal has also emerged online after his return to WWE at the behest of the Triple.

As reported in the last few hours by the well-known site PW Insider, Regal would have returned to being an executive in the behind the scenes of the company with the journalists of the site who reported: "PW Insider has confirmed that William Regal's official title for his new role in WWE is Vice President of Global Talent Development." In practice, the fifty-four-year-old former General Manager of NXT will return to having a fundamental role for the new WWE levers, continuing his work as a talent scout, which he had even before the dismissal wanted by McMahon, together with the other ex NXT: Samoa Joe.

After a very short and intense experience in AEW, Regal thus returns to doing what he does best and therefore discovering new great talents around the world to bring to WWE. William Regal admitted that his final WWE match wasn't versus Cesaro on NXT in 2013 but came against Sami Zayn.

"I had a match with Cesaro, someone I've known for a long time and think the world of. Got to put him over. That wasn't actually my last match because the following year, 2014, we went to Dubai to do a tryout and Sami Zayn came."
