According to reports, William Regal immediately regretted his decision to join AEW and did not want his contract to be renewed. For many years, Regal has been a mainstay name in WWE. After Tony Khan confirmed that Regal would be departing from AEW, fans have been speculating that he will make a comeback in WWE very soon.

Not looking too kindly at the situation, Tony Khan expressed that he was “surprised” to see Triple H posting the video at the ROH Final Battle media call. According to him, he didn’t think it was “in the spirit” of how accommodating they were.
