Hello everyone. As always, I would like to thank all of you once again for joining me today.
It would appear that ECW is working its mojo once again. This time the lucky candidate is none other than Sir William Regal. Since leaving Raw he has gone from a lowly mid carder to the top of ECW.
I have to be honest: I was very surprised by this. It's not that I don’t think that Regal deserves of a title shot, in fact I have always been impressed with his work in the ring.
It has seemed though even going back to his WCW days, he has always been treated more like a second class citizen. Sure Regal has had his moments here and there, but he never really was given that big push.
It seemed that not too long ago he was going to get that push, but he was then suspended for substance abuse. I thought after that happened, things were going to be going downhill for our beloved Sir William Regal.
Like Mark Henry though, when he went to ECW, William Regal became one of the top dogs in the yard. To be fair it is a much smaller yard; that is not the point though. He is finally getting his dues paid to him after many years of faithful service.
I may be the only one that feels this way but I think Regal will not only win the title, I also think he is going to be a great ECW champion. He has always been a great heel champ.
Whether it was the Intercontinental or European championship, he always carried the belt with a little swagger on him. He always was a great ring worker and good on the stick in my opinion. I can honestly say I don’t think I ever saw him wrestle a bad match.
Throw on the fact that he plays one of the best heels in the business today, and I think you have a formula for a fantastic run as champion. The only thing that would make things perfect is to give him back “The Power of the Punch."
This may be Regal's only real shot ever at a big title. I am really pulling for him at Summerslam when he wrestles Christian. Who knows though how things will work out in the wacky world of pro wrestling?
I feel a lot of fans don’t give this man enough respect. I can count on one hand how many articles I have seen on him here. If he wins the ECW title though, the fans will have no choice but to respect him.
Only time will tell if things pan out for William Regal. Until then I can take solace in the fact that he is at least getting a little light shown on him.
I would like to thank all of you once again for spending a few minutes with me today.
As always, have a great and blessed day.
