PHOTOS: William Regal’s son begins wrestling career as NJPW Young Lion



Bailey Regal, the son of William Regal, has furthered his career in the pro wrestling business. 

Regal is currently working as an NJPW Young Lion, which is similar to a developmental talent working through the WWE Performance Center and onto the NXT roster.

In order to be considered a Young Lion, talent must have trained through the NJPW system as well as live in dormitories adjacent to their dojo before they can become a rookie on the NJPW roster.
