William Regal was interviewed by The Daily Star.
During it, he revealed that Sasha Banks was the first talent he pushed to have signed and told the company that if she didn’t work out, they could fire him over it. He’s a talent scout for the company.
“She was the first person I went to bat for to hire, because the people who were doing the job that I do now wouldn’t even give her the time of day.
“I’ve known her since she was 19 and she used to be an extra at Boston. The first day, I was in catering and she came and sat and said ‘do you mind if I ask you some questions about wrestling?’
“I wasn’t doing this job then but in the afternoon at the shows, I’d always be training outside the ring and she’d be one of the ones who would always come and talk.
“When it came to me getting this job… I went to them [about Sasha] and said ‘look, if this doesn’t work out, you can fire me.’
“To see the way she has come through this, and to see what she’s done [is] incredible.”
