William Regal
"Surely, to be an expert at my profession, you have to have made at least a proper living out of it and truly understand all its ins and outs. I've spent 30 years making a living out of it, and I don't consider myself an expert. A lot of delusional tosspots seem to know more than me. And while I'm at it, please don't ask me question in wrestling lingo. Unless you're a pro, you come off like a mug. I don't talk to my comedian friends in their professional lingo because I'm not a pro comic or a plumber or a mechanic. While I'm at it, surely you have had to make a living at this at some point to be considered a pro. Now and then, I like to rule up the more intellectually malnourished of you. It's always a great learning tool. Thank you." - William Regal bashing fans
