WWE NXT Green Lights Charlie Dempsey to All Japan Pro Wrestling

Dempsey will challenge for AJPW Triple Crown Championship

Via AJPW video broadcast:

"Hello to all the fans of All Japan Pro Wrestling, I'm Lord Steven Regal, sometimes known as William Regal who works for the WWE
and NXT. I had a wonderful time in the 90s wrestling in Japan and I wrestled some of the greatest wrestlers of all time, including Mr Fujinami and Mr Antonio Inoki. Well now there's a new generation of European wrestlers who will continue the great European style that was a huge part of Japanese Wrestling. My trainer Marty Jones was trained by the legendary Billy Robinson. My mentors, Johnny Saint, also trained by Billy Robinson. My other mentor, Pete Roberts, a regular for All Japan Pro Wrestling. And now I'm sending to you what I consider the best up and coming wrestler of the old, traditional European and Lanchester style to All Japan Pro Wrestling, and that is Charlie Dempsey. And this is the first time that I'm telling people in public that Charlie Dempsey is my son. Charlie has been travelling the world for the last seven years honing his craft to continue the great legacy of Lanchester style wrestling, and now that he's going to come to All Japan Pro Wrestling and show everybody exactly how good he is and how the great traditions of European wrestling will continue in Japan. Thank you very much indeed." - Steven Regal
