William Regal Biography

Darren Kenneth Matthews is an English professional wrestler, author and color commentator currently signed to WWE under the ring name William Regal. Matthews made his ring debut wrestling in carnivals and on the North Pier of Blackpool at the age of fifteen. Having started his career wrestling on a rare surviving carnival booth in England, Matthews moved on to wrestle for national-level promotions on the British wrestling circuit, including on UK television. He then progressed to touring around the world, in countries such as Germany and South Africa, before being called up to World Championship Wrestling in 1993. Matthews started in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) as Steve Regal, beginning as a face character. Regal's initial appearance in the World Wrestling Federation was on the 29 June 1998 episode of Raw Is War, in which he defeated Droz via submission with the Regal Stretch. In 2000, after leaving WCW, Matthews joined the World Wrestling Federation (later World Wrestling Entertainment and now just WWE), where he became commissioner. More recently he has been General Manager of Raw, the 2008 King of the Ring and was briefly the official match coordinator for NXT Redemption in 2011. He is currently a color commentator on NXT. Throughout his career, he has won more than 60 titles worldwide, including four in WCW and 13 in WWE.
