William Regal was recently a guest on the Swerve City podcast. During the interview, Regal revealed his childhood dream of being a clown or a comedian if he didn't become a pro wrestler. Regal added that he got to do all three as a wrestler and also spoke about how much he enjoyed doing comedy:
"I can’t honestly think of any time when I didn’t say that’s what I want to do for a living. It was three things. I wanted to be either a wrestler, a clown or a comedian. And that was it. And I’ve always thought that I got to do all three doing this…. I’ve absolutely thrived on doing [comedy] because I was somehow gonna get into that world. Wrestling being number one, but I didn’t know if I had the ability or didn’t know how to do it. But I knew I was gonna try and get into some kind of world. I knew that real life wasn’t for me. So this wrestling or this comedy or this whatever, I’m gonna figure out a way and get into it." H/T: WrestleZone
