William Regal Wants A Shot At Daniel Bryan's World Heavyweight Championship

William Regal, who trained Daniel Bryan, is now lobbying for a chance to be the first English World Champion in WWE. Some tweets he posted from his Twitter account are compiled below:

I still want to be the first English World Champion.I would like @WWEDanielBryan to grant me a title shot. @WWE pay attention.

It seems as though a lot of people think the same.One thing though,I don't deserve a title shot,but I want one.

And for the divs who feel the need to bring up my past problems,I am what I am and don't regret anything.It's what makes me me.

I can also entertain like no one else.And I make all my own dresses.

Some people think I'm not up to it.People have been counting me out for years but I can still Wrestle as good as ANYONE in the world.

  • thatguy

    they gave it to henry for years of being loyal to the company, same should go for regal, let lone when he was getting his biggest push he suffered some really bad injuries. He should have his night

    • Darwin

      when he was getting his biggest push, he was suspended because of a wellness policy violation. since then, wwe never cared.

      • Paul

        Wade Barrett is gonna be the first English world champion in my opinion.

  • H.M.

    I would be so down with Regal as champ…he has the tools..

    • 1 2 3 KID

      I agree. Let him face win the title at the chamber and go on to defend it at Mania. That would be a damn good run for him. He is right he can entertain better then most Champs. Him and D Bry are a better feud then D Bry and big show.

  • Zack Ryder

    That last tweet by Regal is damn true.

  • Stoney

    Student Vs Master
    Regal has long since paid his dues and deserves a title shot, just one

  • Luke_Trewarne

    He should get a run, even if a small one. He deserves to retire with a major title on his resume

  • Vince

    William regal vs daniel bryan world heavyweight championship at wrestlemania 28 would be SICKKKK

  • Wwe4L76

    Regal for champ. Would mean the world to me! What a guy! A future hall of famer!

  • JamieSNZ

    Please yes. This is a feud i want to see!

  • Jordan

    He's a man, such a man He's a real, real man's man.

    It could work. Just have Regal question Bryan’s recent tactics, and then have Bryan run him down, setting up a feud. Heck, here’s an idea, have the Rumble winner be from RAW. The only guy from RAW with a chance of winning it is Chris Jericho, and he hasn’t even talked. At Elimination Chamber, the SD Chamber match would be for the number one contendership to the world title at Wrestlemania. So that bars Bryan being in the match, so what will he do? Defend the title against Regal at the event. Credible name to go over, keeps him hot heading to Wrestlemania, no harm, no foul. Most importantly, Henry and Show are away from the world title scene. No disrespect to them, but I personally had enough of those two guys. With Bryan as world champion, it’s best they fade away from the title scene after the Royal Rumble. Sure they might compete at EC, but no doubt they won’t win. That is unless they want to extend the Daniel Bryan/Big Show feud past Royal Rumble.

    Regal can get a rematch during the European tour after Wrestlemania, win the title from Bryan, and hold it until the next PPV. Small run, career achievement award, shift back to Bryan. It seems to work to me. If there’s any reason not to give Regal the title is age and age alone. As he’s up there and age, and it could be considered “too late” to get the world title. However, nothing else wrong with him as he can still go in the ring, still talk, and a story of Regal’s life playing out on TV, would get fans behind him easily, thus he can get over. As evidenced by Superstars a few months ago, Regal and Bryan could really tear it up in a more methodical, technically impressive match.

    • @RatedMKD

      Totally agree! I suggested Regal vs Bryan at Elimination Chamber at some point too, I think it was in a Think Tank. I likened it to Miz vs Lawler last year, only with Regal being a more credible challenger than the King. Not only has he spent less time as a mostly inactive performer, but the fact that he's Bryan's mentor can write a potential benefit for him. Y'know, the whole "he taught Bryan everything he knows, but not everything Regal knows" adage.

  • @RatedMKD

    Yes, yes, yes please! I want to see this match!

  • vivalajady

    would be a spectacular match

  • Patrick

    Makes sense to ATLEAST have the match. Here’s the scenario. Have Y2J win the rumble, that way, the smackdown elimination chamber match will determine the number one contender at WM. Based on the current storylines on smackdown, the elimination chamber will feature Orton, Sheamus, Big Show, Henry, Barrett, and Rhodes. After the Royal Rumble, have regal come out on smackdown and make the same comments as he did on twitter. This will cause, a now full fledged heel, Daniel Bryan to come out and start the whole classic “I’m better than my trainer and achieved more in my short run than you ever had since you been here” angle. Make the match for the EC PPV as it will give Bryan a little, but very important and useful feud going into WM28 where he will face Sheamus, after he wins the smackdown EC match.

  • Patrick_Peralta

    I've been wanting to see Regal get a shot at the World title for years from the time he was in WCW then later when he came to WWE. He deserves a title shot. Plus I've been wanting to see Bryan and Regal have a series of matches. more then just the match they had on Superstars a couple months ago.

    I'd even like to see Regal mange Bryan right now during Bryan's Heel run.

  • Jameson

    I'd definetly let him have a title shot, booking wise I doubt he would get the strap coming into mania

  • Zach

    Regal was getting the push of a lifetime a few years back, but he failed a wellness test so that put all holds on it.

  • Winky p

    Another pointless match up same old crap

    • XKonn247

      Explain how Regal/Bryan that has happened once on SmackDown “same old crap”.

  • proud

    As much as I love Jericho, I’d so mark out if Kane won the Royal Rumble instead… Just saying as Y2J isn’t the only RAW worker with any hope of winning.

    • H.M.

      I can actually agree with this. I'm a huge mark for Kane and always have been.

  • Alex P

    I would like to at least see them give the man a match…it doesn't need to even be the main event of a ppv or anything…just one match!

  • Patrick V

    Put the strap on Regal at EC then have him Hold it til EXxtreme Rulea

  • Synyster

    Honestly I’d rather see Kane win a world title over regal because Kane has deserved it regal blew it after wellness violations (just like Evan Bourne)

    • XKonn247

      Kane did hold it. And beat undertaker three times while he had it.

  • Chopper

    I am not one bit against regal holding the title he does deserve it in his long career.
    Heres my little problem regal got squashed by the funkasaurus on SD not the best way to start off.

  • Chris

    Regal v Bryan – how 'old school' would that be?? Leave the gimmicks at the door and let's wrestle. I'd love to see it.

  • Carl Badham

    Regal 4 champ yes Please. Deserves it.

  • Casey Mac

    Regal deserves his shot and that may be a "MATCH of the YEAR"
