Backstage Reaction To William Regalâ<80><noscript><img class=
There is a lot of concern backstage within WWE stemming from William Regalâ<80><99>s recent 60-day suspension. Regal has been battling a drug addiction for years, and ProWrestling.net reports that many are worried about him relapsing during his suspension. The other concern is that the big push heâ<80><99>s been getting will not resume after he returns from suspension.

A former WWE creative team member revealed that Vince was never a fan of Regalâ<80><99>s in-ring style and rejected pitches to push him in the past. Vince is said to like Regalâ<80><99>s personality, which is how he landed the RAW GM gig.

There are no reports of Regal struggling to maintain his sobriety, and there are a number of people who are skeptical of the theory that he took an illegal supplement. “I don’t think he was a street drug or a steroid guy,” said one WWE source. “I’m just happy we have a strong program and that it’s being taken seriously.”

Overall, there is a much different mood in the WWE locker room in regards to Regalâ<80><99>s suspension than there was when Jeff Hardy was suspended. People were using words like â<80><9c>idioticâ<80> and â<80><9c>stupidâ<80> to describe Hardyâ<80><99>s actions, whereas most within the company are concerned and disappointed for Regal.
