William Regal is one of the most respected names in the pro wrestling world, being a 40-year veteran in the industry. His contributions will forever be remembered and fans acknowledge them as well. Regal spent many years in WWE and even had a terrifying out of body experience during a match there.
Lord Regal has competed all over the world and has faced off against numerous top stars in WWE as well. He also teamed up with Lance Storm and faced off against RVD and Kane in a tag team match at No Way Out 2003.
While speaking on his Gentleman Villain podcast, William Regal talked about the aforementioned match. Regal recalled that he had a terrifying out of body experience in the match.
“There was a pay-per-view for WWE from I believe it was Montreal, whether it was myself and Lance Storm against Kane and RVD. I got slammed. At the time, I didn’t realize that I had a heart problem. I had an out of body experience where I was actually floating above myself thinking thinking I wish that I could rest and sleep this well at night. So I’ve read the studies from Oxford when they say you can actually not be right and still get these out-of-body experiences which I think is, I hate to break this to anybody, but if you actually study the dying and the white light calling me, really your brain is still functioning like a chicken having its head cut off right. So I was above myself looking down on Nick Patrick and Kane going, ‘Are you okay Steve?’, and me going, ‘Leave me alone.’ Luckily, they didn’t let me wrestle the next night in Toronto. Then they found out I had a heart problem.”
William Regal also got Vince McMahon’s blessing to use his own name in AEW. We will have to wait and see whether Lord Regal will make his way back to WWE, now that Triple H is in charge.
