It has been confirmed that William Regal’s ‘Gentleman Villain’ podcast will end ahead of his WWE return.
The announcement was made by Regal’s co-host, Matt Koon, who noted the following on the latest episode:
“Mr Regal is no longer doing the podcast. We have three episodes left. This is one of them. Next week, we have something very special.
“Mr Regal sent me an email a while ago. This email was something he made a while ago called, ‘The Do’s and Don’ts of Professional Wrestling.’
“It’s a list. It’s a long list of things wrestlers should do and wrestlers shouldn’t do. Maybe with a guest next week, I’m going to talk about that.
“The following week, we’re going to give a little preview into the new podcast.
“We call it my new podcast, but it’s not really, but someone much bigger, much more famous, much bigger in the wrestling world, much more current person that is going to have a podcast on AdFreeShows/Podcast Heat, and that show is going to be on this feed.
“So if you subscribe to this show, just hang tight. Listen to it. We’re not saying who it is yet.”
Koon’s guest, Jon Alba, confirmed that the podcast will be different going forward, but will be with someone who ‘loves pro wrestling the same way that William Regal does.’
“I will say this. If you know me, and you heard what Jon just said, then yes, it’s him. That’s all I’m going to say. If you heard what Jon just said about passion and you know me, then you know who it is.
“That’s going to be, not this week, but the week after that, a little preview. Then we are going to start right away. I believe it is going to be December 29th with the new podcast.”
During the December 7 call ahead of ROH Final Battle, Tony Khan stated that Regal wanted to return to WWE to work alongside his son, Charlie Dempsey.
Regal will be returning to WWE in a backstage role. His release comes with the stipulation that he cannot appear on WWE TV before 2024.
During the December 7 episode of AEW Dynamite, Regal delivered his final promo.
Tony Schiavone shared a video of an interview with Regal ahead of his Full Gear turn against Blackpool Combat Club.
