Likely Reason William Regal Is Already Returning To WWE WWE

Rumors have been in overdrive recently over a potential WWE return for William Regal.

After he was seemingly written out of AEW, the rumors are becoming more likely each day.

In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer explained why it is ‘basically a given’ that Regal may be jumping ship to his former promotion.

Meltzer noted:

“It was said when Regal signed that he had a three-year deal. There have been a number of different stories but the one said by someone involved in the deal is that it was actually a “short-term” deal that is about to expire and he is expected to be returning to WWE.

“Multiple WWE sources said Regal had an out clause in his contract. Actually, the returning to WWE is basically a given at this point, whether it was a short-term deal or Tony Khan let him out of his deal out of respect for him.

“There are many other versions going around wrestling as to what happened but the short-term deal is the primary source story. 

“At this point there is supposed to be a final piece of this MJF/Regal title change that maybe explains it further but Regal is done with AEW and headed to WWE.”

It was previously believed that Regal has signed a three-year deal with AEW earlier this year, but it’s since been reported that William Regal’s contract expires in December.

William Regal was released from WWE in January when Vince McMahon and his team were still running things after more than twenty years with the company.

Regal is said to be a favorite of Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque, who of course now serves as WWE’s Chief Content Creator.
