William Regal’s advice for young talent regarding social media

Aug 8, 2022 - by James Walsh

During his Gentleman Villain podcast, William Regal gave his thoughts on young wrestlers in AEW receiving feedback from the internet…

“I asked somebody recently, I said, ‘You’re on AEW Dark a lot. Let me try and put this into perspective for you. It’s great that you’re on there because you’re getting reps. Any exposure is great. It’s an opportunity, but don’t buy into Twitter. Worry about the producers or the people that are paying you, or the older wrestlers, or your peers. Find out from them. Don’t worry about what people on Twitter are saying.”

“I said, ‘Can you look up what the figures are for Dark?’ He said, ‘200,000. I said, ‘Do you get 200,000 tweets?’ He said, ‘About 20.’ I said, ‘Do I need to say more?’ If you’re in this job, you need to worry about getting over yourself and listening to people that can help you. I’m one of the people that will actually help you. Worry about getting the right things over and not somebody you never met.” (quotes courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
