William Regal made a surprise appearance during AEW Revolution on Sunday, marking his first appearance on TV since his WWE release back in January. Late in the show, Jon Moxley beat Bryan Danielson while Moxley was trapped inside a triangle choke, which caused an irritated Danielson to attack both the referee and Moxley.
A security team diminished to attempt and separate the pair to no avail, followed by Regal stomping down the ring. He pulled the two apart, said he had taught both of them much better, then slapped each of them throughout the face before demanding they shake hands.
The pair obliged, indicating the two would be forming the alliance Danielson had been promoting.Tony Khan took to Twitter quickly after the segment and confirmed that Regal had signed with the promotion. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
Regal was release by the WWE after spending more than half of a years as the NXT general manager, and his work in the position made him a beloved figure on WWE programs. He was pulled from NXT following the NXT 2.0 reboot but had nothing but positive things to say after being released.
" Thank you to @WWE for a wonderful 21 year run. You provided a lad who enjoyed and in wonderland wrestling on a carnival have a charmed life for 21 years. No complaints and please no one lose time replying as I won't have a bad work said against the company.".
" With the continued development of NXT 2.0, we've chosen to part ways with a few of the staff based in our Performance Center," WWE wrote in the statement the day Regal was release, which also saw a number of Performance Center workers and Samoa Joe get fired. "We thank them for their many contributions throughout the years and wish them the very best.".
