WWE has released former NXT General Manager William Regal.

Mike Johnson of PWInsider is reporting that Regal is among the names of staff and personnel that the company released today. The WWE veteran is the most surprising name among them.

Regal has been part of WWE NXT for almost the entire duration of the black-and- gold era. Triple H even said at one point that Regal would have a job with him at NXT for as long as he wanted one. The news of Regal's departure certainly comes as a shock today as the company continues to make changes to the NXT brand.
