I don't mind listening to Regal ramble on a bunch of topics, and while he tends to go on tangents, he always remembers where he started and gets back there eventually. That he didn't have much to say on the Real Man's Man gimmick shouldn't have been a surprise, as he's repeatedly said he has very little memory of it and that it was all over very quickly - the team behind him should have known that and realised they weren't getting a tight hour out of him on that topic.

There are a few points when he mentions a match and asks when it was, and the host doesn't really have anything to add - I don't know if they don't have the likes of Derek Sabato, who does research for Conrad's podcasts, working on his, but it just doesn't feel like the background work has been done to make it anything more than just William Regal rambling for an hour. I'm not saying it should go full Conrad and just be an annoying man reading whole passages of the Observer and then saying, "what are your memories of this?" or trying to be One Of The Boys, but it could be tightened up a little more. 

If, in a few months time, it's still Regal talking around topics and going on about how he'd go to PWG shows and make sure he was stood up rather than sat down, or repeatedly saying "I don't have a pack mentality", then I'll give up on it, but I still think it's an easy and fun enough listen at the moment.

I like it, but as I've said before, Regal just having a ramble seems more him than the Conrad format. I'd rather it be another Arn Anderson history cast than some 'I don't recall' Michael Hayes impression and Regal doing dickpill ads.

The guy accompanying Regal sounds terrified of interrupting him and they also have zero chemistry. Dud so far for me anyway, which is a massive shame. 

I actually really like Foley's podcast. He has a surprisingly great memory for interesting little details and him and Conrad both sound like they're enjoying themselves.

Matt Koon had his own podcast a couple of years ago and it was torture to get through.  Has the voice but nothing else - a nice enough guy it seems but isn't really cut out as a podcast host.  Is Regal's show actually part of Conrad's network?  Odd that he isn't taking it on himself if so.  I know he's already doing about 10 others but that's never stopped him before, and he's been passing some of the less popular ones off to other people so no reason he couldn't have done the same here.

Regal would benefit from being on with someone he has history with doing shows with to reign him in. Can’t see it lasting that long given how it’s started, hedoesn’t give impression he’d keep it going when it stops being fun for him

Regal's explanation for his suspension during his KOTR/Raw GM push was fairly flimsy I thought. Nobody could tell him what showed up in his drug test but  it was probably the chemist where he gets his heart meds fault for giving him wrong meds. Not bothered fighting it because he owed WWE too much for hiring him in 2000. Just admit it was for roids/hgh/whatever for your mega push like.

Regal was far better with the "AMA" style I thought. Allows him to go off on tangents and tell half a dozen little stories per answer. They should stick to that format, would be ages before they run out of questions.
