Nobody has a story like William Regal! Bruce and Conrad cover his start in the business at just 16 years old, touring Europe, a surprise tryout with the WWF nobody talks about, who gave him a tip on how to get hired in WCW, who brought him in, why he left, who he called in the WWF to come in, what happened in the very first meeting, the illness that nearly cost him his life, his addiction, the rocky start with the company, the silly "Man" gimmick, rehab, the release, the match that got everyone talking again, the idea for the Commissioner, his title runs, his partnership with Tajiri, the pairing with Eugene, the parasite, his notable matches, winning King of the Ring, the failed drug test, his legacy, and everything in between that made William Regal one of the most fascinating stories in the history of professional wrestling!
