In recent years he’s been involved with NXT where his role is that of a coach and mentor until he became General Manager (GM) in 2016 He also served under this capacity at TNA from 2015-2016. In addition to wrestling, Regal can speak fluent French which came about because he learned it for one year as an exchange student when living on Jersey island during high school days while going to college in England.
He has also written for a variety of wrestling magazines, websites and books as both an author and columnist. Regal is considered to be one of the best wrestlers from Great Britain alongside Dynamite Kid and Davey Boy Smith who are his protégés.
In addition to being inducted into many halls of fame, he’s been named by Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) as the “Best Technical Wrestler” on six occasions: 1992-1997, 2000, 2002-2003. He was inducted into PWIs Hall of Fame Class in 2006 with Pat Patterson being among those present at the ceremony where it took place which was held in Rochester, NY that year.
Height And Weight
Height: 180 cm or 70.87 inches
Weight: 85 kg or 187 lbs
He weighs in at 187 pounds, a mere fraction away from the heavyweight limit of 190 pounds where he wrestles and is as tall as six feet one inch (he doesn’t have much trouble getting inside his opponents’ range). His measurements are 32-26-32 for chest, waist and hips respectively. He has brown hair which he keeps cut very short to go with his muscular frame. The beard that covers up most of his face gives him an imposing image but it’s not unusual to see him clean-shaven when working in a commentary booth during NXT tapings or even hosting WWE Live Events like this week’s show in Cardiff.
He always wears a suit and ties to the ring, which seems like an odd choice for someone who’s spent his career as part of one of sports entertainment’s most old school acts where even squeezing into spandex was considered dressing up. But it reflects his current role on WWE’s roster: He is a manager now more than ever before, having been put in charge of NXT while also serving as Raw General Manager when Stephanie McMahon cannot or will not be there due to her busy schedule (which has become all too often). Â It feels weird that he can’t wrestle anymore given how much wrestling defined him inside and outside the squared circle.
