WWE Legend to Return on SmackDown After 24 Months to Replace Nick Aldis at Roman Reigns’ Request? Exploring the Possibility

WWE SmackDown used to run as per Roman Reigns’ wishes, but Nick Aldis has changed the trend since becoming the new General Manager. Could these happenings lead to a legend’s return?

In case you missed it, this week’s WWE SmackDown featured a backstage confrontation between Nick Aldis and Roman Reigns, where the latter demanded to run things through him before making big decisions regarding the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. The GM reiterated that he is the one who runs the blue brand now. This situation may call for a massive return after 24 months.


This star is none other than William Regal, who has been a notable onscreen authority figure in professional wrestling. He left AEW on December 30, 2022, and cannot appear on TV in any other promotion for one year. This means his clause will end soon, and he can appear on WWE television starting from the New Year’s Revolution episode of SmackDown.

Considering The Tribal Chief’s dominant onscreen character, a potential storyline could feature him bringing back William Regal as an authority figure to replace Nick Aldis. This scenario is not confirmed, but William Regal might return to the blue brand.
