WWE developmental head honcho William Regal recently spoke with the U.K.’s Metro. The former WWE and WCW star talked about NXT, the NXT UK tour, his friendship with WWE superstar HHH, and more. You can check out Regal’s comments on his friendship with HHH below and the full interview at this link.
On his friendship with HHH and how they became friends:
“We have a very odd friendship in the fact that I probably speak to him less than anyone in the company. He trusts me with what he needs to trust me with. He can literally look at me from across the room, and we know that have the same kind of mindset.
When I was younger wrestling in England, I used to go to a lot of countries on my own a lot of time. There was a four year period where I was constantly traveling the world.
I always remembered the guys who would look after me and the ones that didn’t when you get there. So I’ve always made it a point to try and help anybody that’s new, to try and make them feel settled in because people did that for me.
Without that, I would never have gotten to where I got to.
I’ve been lucky that a lot of good people always looked after me because I was polite or whatever, and they showed me around and let me figure out how the specifics of the company worked.
I do that with anybody, and I did that with him. He came to WCW and he hadn’t been wrestling long.
He was only a year younger than me, but I’d been around for ten years at that time, with the last six of those pretty intensive.
Straight away I asked him if he needed any help, and I’d bring him over to my apartment, my wife would cook for him and we’d help him out.”
