William Regal has shared his thoughts on the WWE run of fellow Blackpool Combat Club stablemate Jon Moxley.
Moxley wrestled in WWE for several years under the name Dean Ambrose, as part of the Shield stable alongside current United States Champion Seth Rollins and current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
After leaving WWE in 2019, Moxley ditched his wacky character, instead bringing a more gritty, violent persona to AEW, NJPW and GCW.
On the latest episode of the Gentleman Villain podcast, William Regal discussed Moxley’s time in WWE.
Hoping that Moxley will grow to appreciate his WWE run, Regal said:
“I wasn’t on the main roster in the last whatever amount of years he was there, but he’s got an incredible ability to do entertaining stuff, and I hope one day, instead of looking at it as a bad thing, he realizes how good that is, because he did that.
“If you look at that, that’s sports entertainment at its best. I know he’s somewhat anti-WWE at the moment and he has been for a while, but he was so good at that stuff. He wants to be a, whatever style of wrestler he is.
“I’ve personally found when I do autograph signings, the things that people remember me for, and not all the wrestling I’ve done, it’s the entertainment I’ve done. So I hope he one day realizes how good he is at that and opens up a little bit more to that and realizes what incredible things that he did in WWE.”
Moxley is set to defend his AEW World Championship against MJF at the November 19 Full Gear pay-per-view.
