Rumor Killer on AEW’s William Regal’ WWE return status. Just two weeks after turning on Jon Moxley, AEW world champion MJF betrayed William Regal last night on Dynamite, leaving his future plans up in the air.
According to a new report from Mike Johnson of PWInsider “All signs are that William Regal, 54, will be World Wrestling Entertainment-bound shortly. The Media outlet noted Although they heard nothing official from the company, but there have been rumblings within WWE of late about Regal returning in a backstage role. ”

Additionally, According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select, Regal’s contract would not only end in the coming weeks, as was speculated at the weekend’s WrestleCade event, but WWE would be very interested in his return to the company imminently.
“I heard Regal’s deal ends in December. There’s a promotion since I’m sick.”

This past weekend before Survivor Series, Triple H himself publicly showed his affection for William Regal by reminding the audience of the importance of the former English wrestler for WWE WarGames. Everything that we have been able to know after the fact would imply that Triple H’s message is much more than a simple wink.
If the information about the end of his contract with AEW in December is true, in the coming weeks, we will discover new details about his departure and his possible reinstatement to WWE, a company from which he was fired just nine months ago.
