Tony Schiavone has a high appreciation for William Regal and what he brought to AEW during his time there. Regal was with AEW for a good portion of last year before he exited the company to go back to WWE where his son works. On the latest episode of What Happened When, Schiavone talked about the value Regal brought to AEW and how Regal dedicated himself to working with younger talent.

“Regal is one of the more valuable people you can have,” Schiavone said (per Fightful). “He was us for a time, and he really, really spent a lot of time before shows, even starting earlier in the day, working with the young talent. Not only going in the ring and showing them things, but talking to them. As you know if you listened to his podcasts, William Regal knows how to talk. Boy does he ever. I don’t think he’s a blabbermouth who talks too much, but he talks a lot.”

Regal joined AEW at last year’s Revolution, then exited the company in December. He is now serving as WWE’s Vice President of Global Talent Development.
