That’s a heck of a class. One of the things that you will constantly hear from veteran wrestlers is the importance of passing down knowledge to the new generation. At some point, these wrestlers have to tell the new crop of stars how to do all of this stuff and that is not something you often see. You could see it now in a pretty big place though, if the teachers would let you that is.
According to Alex McCarthy of TalkSPORT, AEW’s William Regal and Bryan Danielson will get in the ring every Wednesday morning at television tapings and teach/work with younger wrestlers. Phones are not allowed but all wrestlers are welcome to attend and participate. Ricky Starks has confirmed that the sessions take place and says that Regal and Danielson regularly engage with him.
Regal says he and Bryan Danielson arrive at AEW TVs and from 11am get in the ring to work/teach. No phones allowed. All the young talent are welcome to get in with them. Ricky Starks confirmed to me he's seen them working 'really early' and they regularly engage with him.

Opinion: This is something I could absolutely see happening and I am not at all surprised to hear about it. Danielson and Regal have long since talked about passing down what they know to the next generation and it is great to see that they are doing just that. What matters here is that they are getting in the ring and having a hands on approach with things, which is not something you hear about that often. Good for them, which is not something you get to say often enough about wrestlers.
