William Regal Undergoes Neck Surgery – Details Inside

William Regal recently spoke with WWE.com, and spoke about his recent neck surgery. Here are the highlights…

On His Neck Surgery: I had a neck surgery last year and everything was very, very good, and I went in for a follow-up exam six weeks ago. Luckily, we did the exam, because they found there was more damage in the back of the neck that needed to be taken care of as soon as possible. The last surgery I had, they went in through the front of my neck; this one’s in the back, so there’s a lot more work involved and a lot of healing in the muscle in the back of the neck. It was my C3, C4, C5 and C6 [vertebrae]. I believe the operation is called a laminectomy, where they go in and completely clean out the calcium deposits from the back. Now that I’ve got this done, it’s just a matter of healing up and I’ll be good to go. Dr. Maroon, who is head of the WWE Wellness Program, performed the operation. He said I’ll be good to go for another 50,000 miles, or 50 years. Hopefully, that will cover me for the rest of my time on this Earth, anyway.

On a Timetable For Return: No. it’s just a lot of doing nothing but walking for the next couple of weeks, and then we’ll go from there. I’ll definitely be on the NXT tour of the UK. Definitely, there’s no question. I won’t be wrestling, but that wasn’t the plan to begin with. I’ll definitely be at all the shows. There will just probably be three to four weeks when I can’t fly long distance. I won’t be able to go on WWE’s November tour, which I normally always go on to do TVs in Manchester, which is a shame. But, as long as I’ll be there for December …

Does He Expect to Return to The Ring?: I really don’t know. It’s too early to tell to see whether it’s a good idea or not. I’m not one of those people desperate to get in the ring again. I’ve been in this for 32 years. I haven’t wrestled for the last two years. Including a year off once, when I got sick after going to India, with a couple of suspensions [laughs], I worked a solid full-time schedule for 26 years. Most people don’t get anywhere close to that, especially with the physical style I did. So if I don’t do anything else, I’m quite happy with that. There’s no problem with that, to me.
