• Triple H Comments On William Regal’s Status
As seen during the closing moments of last night’s NXT TakeOver: In Your House, an interviewer asked NXT General Manager William Regal his thoughts on the show.
Here’s what Regal said before walking away:
“It’s been 7 years since I became the General manager of NXT and I’ve never seen so much bedlam. It’s complete madness. I think it’s time for a change.”

This began speculation that Regal will step down from his job and someone else will replace him as the NXT General Manager.
WWE has announced that Regal will appear on Tuesday’s episode of NXT to announce the change that he mentioned.
There are rumors going on that Samoa Joe will replace William Regal.
During the post NXT TakeOver: In Your House media call, Triple H said the following about Regal’s status:
“William Regal, he’s been such an integral part of this since day one. There are certain people that have and then there’s people that have come in along the way. It’s hard to envision doing it in any sort of way without them.
Regal’s definitely one of those people, and I don’t think that we will ever do it without him. He’ll be a part of this until the day that he tells me he doesn’t want to be a part of it anymore.
It’s why Shawn’s here, it’s why I’m here, it’s why Matt Bloom’s here, Sara’s [Amato] here, it’s why this whole team is here, they love the business, and they love all the aspects of this business and want to see it continue and move forward.
They want to help guide it and change it into the future, try to create the business that they always hoped and wished it could be as they were coming up and get rid of the things that none of us liked or understood about the business and enhance the bits and pieces that we did love about it.
And he is that way to the core. He’s constantly pulling talent aside, constantly in their ear. He’s one of the biggest recruiting factors we have. He’s got a handle on just about everybody that’s out there and is one of the best eyes of somebody that’s maybe never done this before that steps in the ring.
And just athletically, you can see, okay, yeah, they’ll be able to do this and do it really well. He’s incredible at that. So his value here, tough to be measured and he’ll always be a part of it no matter where we go on Tuesday.”
