William Regal's Son Gets His First Win On WWE NXT

The son of the legendary William Regal has scored his first victory on "WWE NXT" television.

Charlie Dempsey, the second of Regal's three sons, defeated Andre Chase on the 11/8 episode of "NXT," but not without controversy. Although Dempsey seemed to have the match won with an Ankle Lock, Chase never tapped out, and the match ended with Duke Hudson throwing in a white towel on behalf of the leader of Chase U.

Dempsey had earlier lost to Chase in his "NXT" debut on August 30, following which he defeated former Chase U member Bodhi Hayward on "NXT Level Up" on September 4. 

It's unknown why Dempsey was written off WWE programming for over two months, but WWE's official website welcomed back the second-generation wrestler following his return to "NXT" last week. In a backstage segment airing on November 1, Dempsey ambushed Chase to set up their singles match for this week, which led to his success. 

Dempsey spent nearly 18 months on the "WWE NXT UK" brand before moving to the United States earlier this summer. During his time in the now-defunct show, Dempsey maintained an 8-2 win-loss record, with his only defeats coming against Tyler Bate and Oliver Carter. The grappling specialist scored two wins over Axiom (FKA A-Kid) and several victories over Gallus' Wolfgang and Joe Coffey. 

It remains to be seen if Dempsey continues his rivalry with Chase U, or moves on to other storylines moving forward, but a clean victory against Chase could be something that he searches for.
