The bare-fisted brawler from Blackpool, England tells his story of fortune and fumbling on the road to the WWE’s higher ranks.

Since joining the WWE in 2000 as a goodwill ambassador from Great Britain, William Regal has established himself as an up-and-coming Superstar. He took the wrestling world by storm defeating many of the WWE’s best wrestlers to win both the European and Intercontinental championships—although he’s probably best known for getting back in WWE owner’s Vince McMahon’s good graces by kissing his naked backside on national television. While fans may still chuckle at Regal’s humiliation, his in-ring success is no laughing matter.

In this no-holds-barred look at his life, Regal for the first time talks about how he has dragged himself out of a life of poverty and adversity on the street of Blackpool, England and battled his own inner-demons to reach the top of the WWE’s roster. He also discusses how he has overcome his recent life-threatening medical condition to return to triumphantly to the WWE.
