In a message to his new colleagues, William Regal issued an apology for taking more time than he was supposed to during his first AEW promo.
"This is a Professional note from me as I have no other form of [social media] and would rather my new colleagues see this as I don’t like gossip. I’m am very sorry to everyone effected by my time issues last night. I apologized to everyone personally effected," Regal tweeted. "I should be showing people by example and being a Pro and hitting my times."
Regal made his AEW debut at Sunday's Revolution pay-per-view. On Wednesday's Dynamite, Regal accompanied Bryan Danielson & Jon Moxley for their win against The Workhorsemen (JD Drake & Anthony Henry). Regal then was interviewed by Tony Schiavone in the ring after the match.
Regal spoke about joining AEW and his history with Danielson and Moxley. He called Danielson "the perfect wrestler" and Moxley "the perfect and utter sadistic person that will take things to a completely other level." To close his promo, Regal issued a warning to anyone who steps into the ring with Danielson & Moxley, saying that they'll either step up or get stepped on.
Schiavone tweeted about sharing the ring with Regal again: "I have experience many wonderful moments in my time in @AEW but this! THIS is one of the best ever. I love @RealKingRegal I cannot express how much he means to me."
The 53-year-old Regal was released by WWE as part of a group of Performance Center staff cuts this January.
