— The Sun has an interview with William Regal. He says he wants to be champion. “Of course I want to be involved more in a wrestling capacity, that’s why I’m in the shape I’m in. Next I want to be world champion, I really do.” He also wants to be a lot more active in the ring. “Iâ<80><99>m always jumping all over Vince McMahon to let me wrestle more. He can’t stand the sight of me! But youâ<80><99>ve got to. Iâ<80><99>m 40 in a few weeks and I feel like I’m better in the ring, and more on my game, than I’ve ever been. I don’t want to be remembered for pulling funny faces, I want people to get a chance to see me wrestle the top fellas and have some big time matches.” He also talks about Chris Benoit. “It was a really weird time for me, because the only time that I got to show off the kind of wrestling I was capable of was against him. And all of sudden it was like â<80>~thatâ<80><99>s itâ<80><99>. It is selfish, after all the horrible stuff that happened, but that was a big part of my career gone. I couldnâ<80><99>t go out and do those matches anymore. Then again I put my name on YouTube the other day and there must be 10 of my matches against Benoit on there. So people are obviously watching them again. Theyâ<80><99>ve forgotten all about those horrific things and have gone back to watching the actual wrestling.” Regal also talks about wrestling stars on the rise, Ric Flair, and more.
