William Regal segment announced for WWE NXT


Following the ending of TakeOver: In Your House, William Regal will speak on NXT this Tuesday night.

WWE has announced that Regal will "address the future of NXT" on this Tuesday's NXT episode. Sunday night's TakeOver: In Your House event ended with Regal saying that he thinks it's "time for a change."

Before TakeOver: In Your House went off the air, interviewer McKenzie Mitchell asked Regal what his thoughts were on all that had transpired during the night. Regal said he's been NXT general manager for seven years and has never seen this much bedlam. Regal said it's complete madness and he thinks it's time for a change.

Leading into TakeOver, NXT Champion Karrion Kross said Regal has lost control of NXT. Adam Cole had inserted himself into the NXT Championship picture by attacking Kyle O'Reilly, Pete Dunne, and Johnny Gargano during a triple threat number one contender's match. Multiple brawls also broke out during the day of TakeOver.

Kross retained his NXT Championship by defeating O'Reilly, Dunne, Gargano, and Cole in a fatal five-way match at TakeOver.

Dave Meltzer reported after TakeOver that Samoa Joe is back in NXT and could take a Regal-like role on-screen.

Here's the updated lineup for this Tuesday's NXT:

  • NXT general manager William Regal addresses the future of NXT
  • Tornado tag match: Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher vs. The Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson & James Drake)
  • NXT Cruiserweight Champion Kushida issues an open challenge
