This has confused me for long time.

I remember back in 2008 when Regal won King of The Ring, it seemed that he was getting a push straight to the main event, as he became the GM and he got amazing heat everytime, I was convinced he was gonna win the WHC at one point, but all of a sudden it seemed that his push halted near the end of the year. Why? Was it backstage issues or something?

It's a shame that Regal's push got ruined by a violation of the Wellness Policy. He was set for a rivalry with Triple H over the WWE Championship.

Holy shit, that would of been amazing. Thanks for all of the answers guys. Although, if he fueded with Regal we wouldn't of seen the surprisingly good matches with Jeff Hardy, so I guess that was good.

What a fucking shame! Imagine him as World Champion - title defenses, promos... I believe it would be awesomeness all around.

I would have loved to see him as a world champ, would have been genuinely different and interesting. He's not an obvious choice but look what happened with Bradsahw.

Shame he got busted, I read his autobiography and thought he'd done really well to kick the drugs.

He would've added tremendous value to the WHC.

Lol, Imagine Regal with the WWE Championship? I can't see it... it looks so "not royal", to say.

They gave him the king of the ring gimmick or else they would have have probably released him or offered him a road agent role... simple as that. That's what happened to his push... he was never going to get one.

Sadly enough I must say.

LOL at WWE waiting until 2008 to push him. He should have been pushed from day one. The guy is phenomenal in the ring, as good as anyone I’ve seen, and he can sure play a character. One of the most balanced talents in the history of pro wrestling. He deserved Booker T’S entire push and run, for a start.
