William Regal issued a statement regarding his time in AEW, which has officially ended.

Regal posted a statement noting that his tenure in AEW came to an end on Thursday after being written off the program several weeks ago when he was attacked by MJF following Full Gear.


Tony Khan spoke on a media call prior to ROH Final Battle, confirming Regal’s pending departure and would be returning to WWE, although with the provision that he won’t appear on camera in 2023.

After being released by WWE in January, Regal debuted for AEW at the Revolution pay-per-view in March and formed the Blackpool Combat Club with Bryan Danielson, Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli, and Wheeler Yuta.

Khan stated on the conference call with media that Regal approached Khan and chief legal officer Megha Parekh regarding his contract with AEW and if they would opt not to renew the option on his contract so that Regal could work with his son, Bailey Matthews a.k.a. Charlie Dempsey in NXT.
