As noted earlier, William Regal announced to the crowd at Tuesday's RAW live event in London, England that the ongoing British tour would be his last because he is retiring soon. He recently signed a 42 month contract renewal with WWE, which puts him under contract until 2014.

You can watch his announcement below. The video starts a few seconds after he started speaking. Regal said:

"Ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much from all of the WWE Superstars to each and every one of you, for coming out and supporting us each and every week and every year, when we come here. There's something, just a little over 27 years that I've been doing this now. As you can see, there's an incredible, wonderful crop of WWE Superstars coming up. Maybe this is my last tour, so thank you very much. Please, believe me, this is a wonderful way to end it all. Thank you."
