William Regal On NXT: ‘It Needed A Change’

William Regal On NXT: ‘It Needed A Change’

Whether you love it or hate it, NXT 2.0 is a very different product to the old black and gold NXT, with more colours, characters, and random main roster stars appearing at short notice.

While you may not have thought the show needed to change so drastically, one person who agreed with the change is William Regal, who spoke about NXT morphing into NXT 2.0 during his appearance on the Talk is Jericho podcast.

Regal also made it clear he has no ill feelings about his WWE release, and is really happy with everything that happened. He said:

“I was the first person, as far as I know, that (Triple H) pulled in and said, ‘Right, what’s your vision for this?’

“We did what we did and it was a great thing for a lot of people. A great success, and I have no ill will at all, I’m really happy. Because it needed some kind of change, because things have changed. This place (AEW) had come along and different things, so it needed (a change)… and so, that went on.”
