He tweeted Sunday, "I've never asked Daniel Bryan for anything for my help and guidance over the years. So now perhaps it's time. I still want to be the first English World Champion. I would like Daniel Bryan to grant me a title shot. WWE pay attention."
Regal then stated in response to those who doubt his ability: "It seems as though a lot of people think the same. One thing though, I don't deserve a title shot, but I want one. Some People think I'm not up to it. people have been counting me out for years but I can still wrestle as good as ANYONE in the world."
Regal faced Bryan in his last WWE match, which took place at the November 8, 2011 WWE Superstars taping in Liverpool, England. Regal's last match on a top-tier show was also against Bryan, on the December 20, 2011 RAW.
