William Regal's Show a Success
William Regal performed at the Frog and Bucket Comedy Club after WWE Raw was completed in Manchester, England. There was several hundred fans that attended his show, which ran until after 1:00 am. Most of these fans came directly from WWE Raw taping and would fill the crowd in the comedy club. There were several wrestlers in attendance, including Daniel Bryan.
During the show, Bryan and fans asked Regal to share some stories about his days on the road. He was careful with what he was saying, so he would not "bury" anyone in the WWE. He stood up and talked about the kind of man John Cena is and how he deserves his spot in the WWE. Regal also mentioned that it is unfair to put so much pressure on the developmental talent, as this business is extremely difficult to work for.
