On the December 11th 2013 edition of NXT, William Regal was revealed to be the leader of the faction The United Kingdom that had recently taken over the NXT brand, Regal teamed with the NXT Champion Sheamus, defeating Triple H and the NXT General Manager Ted DiBiase in the main event. The following week, Regal teamed with Drew McIntyre to defeat The Prime Time Players, winning the NXT Tag Team Championship. The team successfully defended their championship for the first time at Royal Rumble, with McIntyre & Regal retaining against The Hard Knox.

On February 6th, The United Kingdom lost the NXT Tag Team Championship as issues began to brew among the faction as DiBiase began to spread rumours that one of the members had been bought out by him, this lead to issues between McIntyre & Regal, causing them to lose their championship to the Motor City Machine Guns. The United Kingdom then won the championships back from the Machine Guns on March 5th, this time using the team of Regal & Adrian Neville.

As WrestleMania III drew near, The United Kingdom split into two teams, with Regal & Neville remaining a team and McIntyre & Sheamus going their seperate ways as The Celtic Cross, the two faced off at WrestleMania III, with The United Kingdom retaining the NXT Tag Team Championship. They lost the championship on April 23rd to Shelton Benjamin & MVP following issues between Regal & Neville.

NXT General Manager (2014-present)

In mid 2014, Regal was declared the new NXT General Manager. He debuted the first solo branded event NXT Arrival in December of 2014, as the event drew near, NXT talent Alberto Del Rio began to target William Regal, demanding an opportunity at the NXT Championship and going as far as to attack Regal. At NXT Arrival, Regal returned to the ring for a one-off match, losing to Del Rio via submission. Following this, Regal returned to in-ring retirement. At WrestleMania IV, Regal stepped into the ring once again to face Del Rio who was continuing to target him, losing to Del Rio again, this time in a Last Man Standing match.

On November 11th, Regal returned from retirement and defeated Fandango. At TakeOver: Brooklyn, the two faced off again in a Royal Rumble qualifier, with Regal defeating Fandango again.

Following the 2016 Draft, with Bad News Barrett back on NXT, Regal & Barrett reformed The United Kingdom as just the two of them. They competed in a #1 contenders match for the NXT Tag Team Championship, defeating The New Day to earn a shot at Perfection's championships. Two weeks later, The United Kingdom were unsuccessful in winning the championships. Regal then called out one of the champions for a singles contest the following week, however, the challenge was answered by Kevin Nash who quickly defeated Regal. Regal then teamed with Barrett to face Nash & Scott Hall in a #1 contenders match, losing to The Outsiders.

Regal then began having issues with Daniel Bryan, who was frustrated over his under-utilization on NXT. Due to this, Barrett returned to action on July 6th, doing Regal's dirty work as he attacked and defeated Daniel Bryan.
