William Regal returned to NXT last night, his first appearance
since he returned to the company a year ago after getting his
release from AEW.
Regal was in a backstage segment with Ava, congratulating her
on becoming the new NXT General Manager and the youngest in
WWE history. Regal said that NXT means a lot to him and he has
been there since day one so Ava needs to look out for the
brand. Ava told Regal that she knows she has big shoes to fill
but is ready to do the job.
Regal, who now occupies the role of Vice President of Global
Talent Development, had a one year clause in his AEW release
where he could not appear on WWE television. He requested and
got the release from AEW in December 2022.
