- Thursday marked 27 years since NXT General Manager William Regal moved to the United States to further his pro wrestling career. Regal began working for WCW and would debut in a backstage segment on the January 30, 1993 episode of WCW Saturday Night, which was taped on January 25 at Center Stage in Atlanta. He made his in-ring debut the next week with a win over enhancement talent Bob Cook on the February 6 episode, which was taped on February 2.
Regal, who works behind-the-scenes with NXT and the WWE developmental program, marked the milestone on Twitter and thanked everyone.
"I've just realised it's the 23rd of January. It's exactly 27 years ago today that I moved to the US to start working for WCW on the 25th. Thank you to everyone who has helped, watched and employed me. I'm a very fortunate lad and I never forget it," he wrote.
You can see Regal's full tweet below, along with video of a young Regal and WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross from that first appearance:
