Congratulations to the WWE for finally giving Mark Henry the chance and opportunity that he deserves. He has been a monster heel off and on for a while and what was supposed to happen in 2006 finally happened 5 years later at WWE Night of Champions.
I believe that there is one more man deserving of his time to shine before he phases out of wrestling history: William Regal.
William Regal is a very decorated athlete winning every title in the WWE except for the big one. I once read an article not too long ago stating that William Regal is asking for a World Heavyweight Championship opportunity. I marveled at the idea because honestly, he does deserve it. The generation of fans is about to change and the next generation won't know who William Regal is and his decorated history in the WWF and the WWE. He is an amazing technical wrestler as well as a good authority figure and a heel. The WWE has made a big enough joke for him and if not for anything give him the strap for his hardship in the WWE. He's a former IC, Euro, Hardcore, and Tag Team Champion and he needs that big one to cement himself as one of the greats as a Triple Crown Champion and a Grand Slam Champion.
I am not saying let him have the title for a long time because of course he is getting up there in years and he cant handle a full time wrestling schedule of course. I'm proposing that at a live event in England/Great Britain, have him at least win the championship and lose it the next week or something! Something along the lines of Nunzio's Cruiserweight championship reign. It will barely even phase the new fans of today but it will mean tons to older fans like ourselves and William Regal himself. He can have a World Heavyweight Championship to top off his impressive collection of championships.
I know its a lot harder to toss around because its the flagship belt and not the cruiserweight belt but come on, WWE can afford to do it, Cena won it twice by cutting the reigns of Mysterio and Del Rio short and making them "forgettable WWE Champions" and WWE made Dolph Ziggler Triple Crown Champion WAAY BEFORE he got over with the fans. I am sure the WWE can afford to fit William Regal in and top off his career before he goes into retirement soon.
I just wanted to express my opinion of giving someone deserving a championship like William Regal. Even in his old age he still wrestled very well which I applaud him for. He is one of the WWE's top tenured employees devoting everything he had to the sport. WWE, LET HIM HAVE IT
