William Regal Talks About Wrestlers Thinking They're Over Because Of Twitter Responses


Getting over with fans on social media doesn't mean you're "over" for a wrestling promotion in general.

William Regal spoke during the latest installment of his "Gentleman Villain" podcast about wrestlers thinking they're over because of responses they get on Twitter and other social media outlets.

Featured below is an excerpt from the episode where he touches on this topic with his thoughts.

“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.”

Regal continued, “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.”
