After a career of ups and downs inside and outside the ring, William Regal has found his niche working with younger talents in WWE.
When speaking to Metro, Regal was asked about his friendship with WWE legend Triple H, who figures to be running the ship down the line.
"We have a very odd friendship in the fact that I probably speak to him less than anyone in the company. He trusts me with what he needs to trust me with. He can literally look at me from across the room, and we know that have the same kind of mindset," said Regal.
The two teamed together in WCW during the 1990's, and Regal vividly recalls the previous Terra Ryzing being offered a WWE deal.
"We got put together as a team, so we trained together all the time at the old Power Plant in WCW. I didn't know how long the British wrestling style would last at that time because it was dying off then, so I started teaching him some of that stuff that I knew. It just went from there, the team worked well for a short period but his contract was coming up and he got an offer from WWF. I said to him he had to go, he wanted to go anyway, but he asked me and I said he had to because they were working nearly 300 dates a year at that point.I'd done all my work working every day, and I told him he could only get better doing that. Some people are good from the get go. I wasn't, and he wasn't. We had to learn everything that we ever got. The only place to get better is to work in front of a crowd every night, that's when you'll find what really works and what doesn't," said Regal.
