• WWF Legend Doesn’t Care If He Gets Fired From AEW For Defending WWE NXT UK
During a recent episode of his weekly ‘Gentleman Villain’ podcast, Old School WWF/WCW Legend ‘Sir’ William Regal stated that he doesn’t care if AEW even fires him for defending WWE NXT UK.
Here’s what the 2008 King of the Ring had to say:
“So, if they want to try and take me up on this, take me up on it and if I get fired from the company I’m working for now for sticking up [for them], then so be it.
‘NXT UK’ was a passion project of mine, to give a decent place for British and European talent to get a pipeline so they could go to WWE and have the charmed life that I’ve had.
If they don’t like that, then they can get stuffed. This was all done for the right reasons. How it’s played out is an unfortunate thing.”
As we reported, NXT UK will go on hiatus after their upcoming ‘Worlds Collide’ event and will then eventually be replaced with NXT Europe, which will still include the United Kingdom but also other European countries like Germany and Italy.
Speaking of Regal, he’s the Manager of the Blackpool Combat Club (Jon Moxley, Bryan Danielson, Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta) on AEW programming.
