William Regal opens up on Chris Benoit

On the latest episode of His Lordship’s ‘Gentleman Villain’ podcast, Regal discussed his relationship with Benoit.

Once Benoit got together with Nancy, the future wife that he eventually murdered, Regal’s relationship with him changed. William Regal’s wife would not even allow him into their home. By the 2000s, they barely spoke.

Here is what Regal said:

‘My wife would not have Chris anywhere near my house. Eventually Chris moved from six miles away from where I lived, once he was with Nancy. Chris knew that he was not allowed near my house, so any of our social life ended then.

We used to knock around with each other in the ’90s, but by the 2000s I wasn’t going out anymore, so when we were back together in WWE, our only time that we were ever together was at work ’¦ We still had a, ’˜Hello, how’re you doing?’ and that was it, and he understood the situation at my home, that he wasn’t allowed, and because we lived six miles apart, we never saw each other.’

Recently, IMPACT Wrestling star Jordynne Grace received backlash from fans for her comments on social media about Benoit. She had said:

“This is gonna be the coldest take I ever tweet on this app. I already know y’all gonna be mad. I don’t think Benoit could 100% hang with most of the present day best wrestlers. He would not be able to remember matches. Also may he burn in hell, amen”

Later she had apologized for her comments saying:

‘Last week I made an irresponsible and unnecessary tweet. Regardless of how my personal emotions influence my opinion, I should have recognized the impact my words would have on friends and family close to the situation. I was completely thoughtless in that regard.

Since reflecting this past week, I’ve reached out privately to friends and family that I angered or hurt.

Among those was David Benoit, Chavo Guerrero, and Chris Jericho, who are supporting me in the decision to partner and fundraise with the Concussion Legacy Foundation (formerly Sports Legacy Institute). I have pledged $5,000, with the overall campaign goal being $20,000.

I’m acutely aware that the damage has been done. I would never intentionally add onto the suffering of those already dealing with such a traumatic event, and I am sorry for my insensitivity and aggravating this already delicate topic. This is my way of attempting to squeeze something positive out of the negative situation I created. Thank you in advance to everyone who donates.’
