Triple H, Daniel Bryan and Several Other WWE Superstars Praise William Regal
WWE's website has a new article up with Triple H, Daniel Bryan, Robbie Brookside, Antonio Cesaro, Wade Barrett and Fit Finlay talking about how they respect William Regal. Here are quotes from Bryan and Triple H:
Triple H: ďI think William Regalís passion for this business has allowed him to not only succeed but to change with the times. If you look at the things heís done during his career, from contesting serious matches to making people laugh, that passion has allowed him to fill whatever role needed to be filled. Not a lot of people can do that. Thatís a rare quality, to be able to do both.
ďFor me, WWE NXT is my environment and what I deal with on a daily basis ó William Regal is a huge component of that. Heís got a remarkable eye for talent. The rare thing with him is that most guys see new talent in the mold that they are, and thatís what they are interested in. He has a unique ability to look at everything. It can be someone who works in the complete opposite style that he does, but he can still see value. To me, thatís where he plays a huge role ó spotting and understanding talent, who can make it.
ďAs for his jokes, I never hear him, because heís such a soft talker. We were on the road together for years, and I spent the majority of my time saying, ĎWhat?í He has that English sense of humor; you know, in which the joke is so rotten itís actually funny. Itís not that Iím laughing at the joke, but more at how bad the joke is.Ē
Daniel Bryan: ďOne of the things thatís cool to me about William Regal is that heís a gentleman. He is professional in every aspect of the word. He shows up to the building, and heís wearing a suit and looks presentable. Also, heís got that quiet toughness. Some guys are very brash and want to wear their Affliction shirts, but heís not that guy. You know heís tough, but he never has to say anything about it. Heís somebody who came up in a different era.
ďI was with WWE when I was 18 and then got let go in 2001, but he was responsible for getting me booked in the UK. And I spent six months there in 2003 and another four months in 2005 and another three months in 2008, and thatís all because of him.
ďItís hard to get feedback from good people when youíre on the independent circuit. A lot of those shows I was on, I was main-eventing and people were asking me for advice, but then who do I go to for advice? Regal was always there. Anytime I asked him to watch a match, heíd watch it. And then heíd give me feedback and constructive criticism. When I first got to WWE, he really helped me navigate the waters, as far as, what you should do and donít need to do here and whatís important.Ē
