Welcome home. There were a lot of changes to the WWE landscape in 2022 and there is nothing to suggest that those changes will be ending in the new year. Several of the changes involved names moving to or from the company with a bunch of wrestlers coming back. That was not just the case with wrestlers though and now we have a new name returning behind the scenes.

According to PWInsider.com, William Regal has officially returned to WWE, starting back with the company on January 4. There is no word on his official job title or duties. Regal left AEW last month to return to WWE, reportedly to help with his son Charlie Dempsey. As part of his release from AEW, Regal cannot appear on WWE television for one year in any capacity.

Regal is a big return for WWE. Check out what he did while he was around:

Opinion: This is the kind of change that could mean quite a bit for WWE, as Triple H is likely going to make Regal his right hand man behind the scenes. Regal is one of the most revered and well respected names in wrestling today and having him around should only help the company. He won’t be seen for a long time, but that just leaves him with more time to help develop talent behind the scenes.

What do you think of Regal returning? What should he do in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
