William Regal Reveals He Once Put His Job On The Line For Top WWE Star AEW/WWE

William Regal has revealed that he once put his job on the line to hire a top WWE star.

Appearing on The Sessions with Renee Paquette, the Blackpool Combat Club leader was asked about former WWE star Cesaro and what he should do next.

In answering the question, Regal revealed that he once put his job on the line to hire Sasha Banks.

He said:

“There’s only four people that I have ever gone to Mr. McMahon or to Triple H with whom I have said I put my reputation on.”

“I put my job on the line once for Sasha Banks. She was somebody I went because I knew her, and my first thing on the job was to hire this lady. I said, ‘If it doesn’t work out, you can fire me.’ She’s not one of them. That was a separate thing.”

Regal continued on to reveal the four people that he put his reputation on during his time in WWE, saying:

“I’ve only put my cards for people where I’ve gone and said, ‘Look, I can’t tell you if they’re going to draw you any money, but they are incredible at what they do. They are professional. They will always be there. They will represent the company well, everything that you could want out of a person’, and two of them were Bryan, and Claudio was the second. So that’s how much I think of him.”

In regards to what Cesaro should do next after his WWE release, the AEW star said:

“I just think that he needs to do whatever he feels is right for his family. If my words mean anything, again, it’s not about what you think is right or wrong, if nothing else, to have the stabilizing influence of a 100% professional person who everybody can look up to and watch and learn from and learn everything that you could possibly want to be as a professional.”

“He dresses like a star. As a human being, he speaks five languages perfectly. He can represent your company anywhere. That’s before we even get into the ring. If you don’t think that, maybe there’s something wrong somewhere. If I had any clout anywhere, I would sacrifice some of the money from that roster, and this may sound horrible, to get him.”

William Regal will appear on this Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite in a face-to-face confrontation with Chris Jericho after their physical confrontation.

Regal also addressed the possibility of stepping back into the ring in a recent interview, which you can read here.
