After helping MJF defeat Jon Moxley to become AEW World Champion at Full Gear, William Regal was present in-ring with MJF on Dynamite for the reveal of the new AEW World Title belt.
Before the segment was over, MJF ambushed Regal from behind and he had to be ‘taken to a hospital’. Coming out of that, it was reported by Fightful Select that Regal is ‘effectively done’ with AEW and PWInsider added that he was finalizing a new deal with WWE.
AEW issued a press release and noted that William Regal’s status will be addressed on the pre-ROH Final Battle media call on Wednesday. Tony Khan gave a storyline update on Regal while on the Battleground Podcast and added that the former Blackpool Combat Club member’s status will also be addressed on Dynamite.
