Through an interview, William Regal revealed that he underwent a second neck surgery this month. The former European Champion stated that it was a laminectomy, where doctors went in and cleared out the calcium deposits in his vertabrae. Regal stated that he needs a little bit more time to heal, so that he can head back into the ring. The belief is that Regal is going to start working out with the developmental wrestlers in NXT.
