Mike Johnson at PWInsider reported "all signs" are that Regal is WWE-bound though there has been nothing official or confirmed. Fightful Select notes "there is absolutely WWE interest in bringing him back whenever his deal is done."

On Wednesday's AEW Dynamite, MJF hit Regal in the back of the head with brass knuckles, laying him unconscious. Regal was taken out on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance. Regal helped MJF win the AEW World Title at AEW Full Gear, sliding him brass knuckles to use on Jon Moxley.

Regal joined AEW in March when he appeared at AEW Revolution, getting in-between Jon Moxley and Bryan Danielson, leading to the formation of the Blackpool Combat Club.

He was released by WWE, where he served as WWE Director of Talent Development and Head of Global Recruiting in January.

Fightful will provide more details when they are known.
