William Regal reveals he had open heart surgery last year



For the first time, NXT General Manager William Regal has opened up on the health issues that kept him away from NXT TV for a few months in 2018.

Dave Meltzer reported last year that Regal was dealing with medical issues but it was never stated exactly what those issues were.

Regal put all rumors to rest on Twitter and noted that he is doing fine now: "1 year ago today I had open heart surgery to remove a calcified pericardium. Just wanted to get that out as I’m healthy and fit as a butchers dog now. Just wanted to get that out as I’m dedicated to my family and NXT. Please don’t reply, it’s just life."
