Following up on our breaking news from earlier today; PWInsider has confirmed along with a post on WWE.com that William Regal has been suspended for 60 Days for his violation of the WWE’s Wellness Policy. Below is the post on WWE.com:
STAMFORD, Conn., May 20, 2008 – In accordance with its Substance Abuse and Drug Testing Policy, WWE has suspended Darren Matthews (William Regal) for 60 days for his second violation of the company’s policy.
This has to be about the biggest blow to a star since Jeff Hardy’s two month suspension back before WrestleMania XXIV. Regal was getting a major push as the “King” and RAW GM, and his momentum is now dead as he’ll be off TV for two months after his storyline loss to Ken Kennedy last night. This is his second violation as stated above, so if he has another issue after his return, he’s gone from the company.
