Triple H has been raising fans' expectations ever since taking over the helm of WWE, and it now seems like he has his eyes set on his next acquisition. According to Dave Meltzer, William Regal's WWE return has been discussed.
Regal made his AEW debut during March's Revolution pay-per-view and quickly went on to form The Blackpool Combat Club with Jon Moxley, Bryan Danielson, and Wheeler Yuta. Now that the faction seems to have reached its end, fans are clamoring for the Gentleman Villain to return to Triple H's side.
During a recent Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer stated that Regal's WWE return has been brought up amongst the higher-ups in the Stamford-based promotion. Meltzer also stated he'd not be surprised if the star made the transition.
"I would just say that when his contract is up, it would not surprise me. Tony can make him a better offer and all that. It is certainly something that has been discussed. I will just say that," Meltzer said.
Meltzer went on to surmise that Regal doesn't have much time left on his AEW contract.
"His contract is not up for a long time. I think was only a one-year deal...I was told a date but it might be wrong but it was still months away. Several months away. I don't know what the situation is. I think it will probably be all explained," Meltzer said. (H/T: WrestlingNews.Co).
Bryan Alvarez recently speculated that it was unlikely that Regal would jump ship to WWE, but that was before any word was out on the amount of time left on his contract.
