World Championship Wrestling

Early face run (1993)

Matthews started in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) as Steve Regal, beginning as a face.[3] He was turned into the heel Lord Steven Regal in 1993, claiming descent from William the Conqueror. At times arrogantly charming in this persona, one of his memorable statements to a post-match interviewer was, "Do you know what my New Year's resolution is going to be?

Television Champion (1993-1994)

Bill Dundee served as his manager under the name Sir William, and he won the Television Title four times. He teamed up with fellow aristocrat Jean-Paul Levesque, later known as Triple H, but after Levesque left WCW, he was replaced by Alabama-born Bobby Eaton.[3] Regal formed the team The Blue Bloods and was involved in humorous vignettes where he tried to teach Eaton the finer points of dining and the proper usage of the Queen's English. He renamed him "Earl" Robert Eaton and soon added "Squire" David Taylor, as well. They came close to winning the WCW Tag Team Titles, but never did.[3] Among his feuds in WCW were Ricky Steamboat, Johnny B. Badd, Ultimo Dragon, The Belfast Bruiser, Sting, Prince Iaukea, and the team of Dick Slater and Bunkhouse Buck. During his stint in WCW, Regal faced Living Legend Antonio Inoki in what was a short but memorable match at Clash of the Champions on August 28, 1994.

Match with Bill Goldberg

On February 9, 1998, Regal had a now well-known televised match with Bill Goldberg on WCW Monday Nitro, in which he appeared more aggressive and stiff than expected with the then-rising star. It was later revealed that most of Regal's moves on Goldberg were shoot-style moves, which caught Goldberg off-guard at the time. WCW management was upset with Regal because, even though he did job to Goldberg as expected, he was supposed to lose to Goldberg in a squash, like most of Goldberg's other competitors at the time, as opposed to actually keeping the match competitive. For other persons named Bill Goldberg, see Bill Goldberg (disambiguation). ... For other persons named Bill Goldberg, see Bill Goldberg (disambiguation). ... To be stiff in professional wrestling is to hit an opponent with more force so as to make the attacks seem real to the fans. ...

In professional wrestling, a squash is an extremely one-sided match; one performer dominates the other and quickly defeats him with virtually no resistance. ...


Regal later admitted that the reason he wrestled more aggressively to Goldberg at the time was because he was not happy with WCW management giving someone with very few wrestling skills and someone that wasn't technically sound, let alone the fact that Goldberg had been wrestling for less than a year, a main-event push right away. WCW punished Regal by releasing him shortly afterwards. In professional wrestling, a push is an attempt by the booker to make the wrestler win more matches and become more popular with the fans. ...


World Wrestling Federation (1998-1999)

Regal's initial appearance in the World Wrestling Federation was on the June 29, 1998 edition of RAW is WAR, in which he defeated Droz via submission with the Regal Stretch. Regal had no particular gimmick in this showing, and he would not be seen on WWF television again until he returned that fall with a "Real Man's Man" builder/lumberjack style looking gimmick that was based on the image of The Brawny Man.[3] Vignettes for the character showed him doing "manly" things like chopping wood, shaving with a plain razor, and squeezing his own orange juice. He debuted in October 1998. He faced X-Pac in the opening round of the tournament for the vacant WWF Championship at the 1998 Survivor Series.[3] The match ended in a double countout, eliminating both men from the tournament. Regal then began a feud with The Godfather, but was taken off television soon after. Regal checked into rehab in January 1999 and was released from the WWF in April.

World Championship Wrestling (1999-2000)

After checking out of rehab, Regal was invited back into the wrestling world, making a somewhat brief return to WCW. Lord Steven Regal's official PPV Return took place at the Bash at the Beach '99 where he was one of many participants in the first ever Hardcore Invitational. On Nitro on July 12, 1999, Steven Regal w/Fit Finlay and David Taylor went against Billy Kidman. The fans acted as if Regal never left and right at the bell began chanting "USA! USA!." Despite outside help from Finlay and Taylor, Regal was unable to pick up the win. On Thunder on July 14, 1999 Steve Regal, Fit Finlay and Dave Taylor faced Brad Armstrong, Chase Tatum and Swoll (w/4x4). During this time Finlay was forced to stay out of action due to nerve damage in his leg sustained while wrestling in a hardcore match. On Nitro on July 26, 1999, Lord Steven Regal faced Mikey Whipwreck. Jimmy Hart's First Family came out to challenge the Blue Bloods at Road Wild for the Hardcore Trophy thus causing Regal to lose to Whipwreck. Nothing really came of this challenge as neither the First Family or the Blue Bloods were even featured at Road Wild. Similar to his former run, much of Regal's performance took place in tag team bouts. He continued his role as a rulebreaking heel and had small feuds with teams such as the Filthy Animals. In late February 2000, Regal faced off in a (Career vs. Career) match against Hacksaw Jim Duggan WCW Saturday Night for the Television title. Regal lost the match, and as WCW continued to lose the ratings war with WWF, Regal was again released in February 2000.

Regal was once again hired by the WWF and sent to Memphis Championship Wrestling for a short time. After a bout with Chris Benoit at the Third Annual Brian Pillman Memorial Show, he was promoted to the full roster and re-debuted on the September 18, 2000 episode of Raw is War as Steven William Regal (soon shortened to William Regal), a stereotypical British snob, hearkening back to his WCW character. As a heel, Regal had much more success, winning the WWF European Championship.[3] He later became the on-screen commissioner and self-proclaimed "Goodwill Ambassador" of the WWF and was given a comedy sidekick/man-servant in Tajiri.

In an interview with WWF Magazine, Matthews expressed affectionate feelings toward the WWF, citing the organization's support and patience during his time in and out of rehab, which had helped lead to the current reunion and pleasant relationship.[citation needed]


During the WCW/ECW Alliance storyline, Regal turned heel on his fellow WWF wrestlers by costing Kurt Angle (then a babyface) the WWF Title and joining the WCW Alliance. He was fired as commissioner by Linda McMahon, but Shane McMahon, who was the then heel owner of WCW, hired him as the Alliance Commissioner. After the Alliance was defeated at the Survivor Series 2001, Regal was forced to become the first member of Vince McMahon's "Kiss My Ass" club by kissing the left cheek of McMahon's ass (literally) so he could keep his job.[3] Kurt Steven Angle (born December 9, 1968) is an American professional wrestler and former Olympic amateur wrestler. ...

Intercontinental Championship rivalries & RAW brand (2002-2005)

In 2002, after an absence due to surgery on his nose, Regal returned and feuded with Edge. He won the WWF Intercontinental Championship from Edge at the Royal Rumble. There he began using a set of brass knuckles to win matches. Regal defended the title against Edge again at No Way Out in a brass knuckles on a pole match before losing the Intercontinental Title to Rob Van Dam at Wrestlemania 18. After this he beat former WCW Champion Diamond Dallas Page for the European Championship on an April 2002 edition of SmackDown!. It had been over a year since he last held the title. In mid-2002 the World Wrestling Federation was renamed World Wrestling Entertainment, and the roster was divided into two "brands". During this time he was drafted to the RAW brand by Ric Flair. He lost the European title to Spike Dudley but won it back two weeks later to become a four time champion. He later lost the title to Jeff Hardy. He also briefly held the WWF Hardcore Championship. He then formed an alliance with Molly Holly before joining The Un-Americans, an anti-American heel stable consisting of Canadian wrestlers Lance Storm, Christian and Test.[3] On the September 30, 2002 episode of RAW, every member of The Un-Americans lost their matches, causing the group to separate later in the night and splinter into separate groups. Regal began teaming with Lance Storm, Christian formed a team with Chris Jericho, and Test branched off into single competition and eventually turned face. Storm and Regal won the World Tag Team Championship from Booker T and Goldust thanks to Regal's trusty Brass Knuckles. Howvever, they lost the titles to The Dudleys because of the same pair of Brass Knuckles at the Royal Rumble. However, Regal and Storm regained the titles 24 hours later, thanks to an impromptu match set up by Chief Morley after Regal and Storm had put Bubba through a table. But Regal would later have to give up his title due to a heart condition (initially thought to be a stomach virus contracted on a recent WWE tour of India).[3] Adam Joseph Copeland (born October 30, 1973 in Orangeville, Ontario),[5] better known by his ring name Edge, is a Canadian professional wrestler currently signed to World Wrestling Entertainment and wrestling on the SmackDown! brand. ...

Upon Regal's return, Eugene (the "mentally challenged" nephew of RAW General Manager Eric Bischoff) was placed in the care of Regal during his return to WWE. He became friends with Eugene, turning him face in the process. Regal was ordered by Bischoff to make Eugene lose so that he'd leave the WWE, but Regal's friendship with Eugene caused him to try only half-heartedly to cost Eugene his match with Robert Conway. Despite this, Bischoff put Regal back on the active roster. Regal would then team with Eugene and they won the World Tag Team Championship from La Résistance on the November 15, 2004 edition of RAW. Later, Eugene injured himself at New Year's Revolution after botching a dropkick. This ultimately cost them the World Tag Team Championship, as Regal unsuccessfully attempted to defend the titles with announcer Jonathan Coachman as his tag team partner. The pair wrestled against La Résistance and lost the match at a RAW brand house show, crowning La Résistance with their third reign. On February 4, 2005, Regal and old ally Tajiri defeated La Résistance to win the World Tag Team Championship on an episode of RAW, broadcast live from Tajiri's home country of Japan. La Résistance repeatedly attempted to regain the gold (mainly on Sunday Night Heat) from Regal and Tajiri in many different matches, but just fell short during each one. During the "last shot" for Regal and Tajiri's gold, La Résistance thought they had won back the titles, only to have the decision reversed by referee Mike Chioda due to La Résistance not pinning the legal man. After winning this match Regal issued an open challenge to any tag team in the world to come after their belts. On the following episode of RAW, Regal and Tajiri successfully defended the belts against the debuting Romeo and Antonio, known collectively as "The Heart Throbs." On May 1, 2005, at Backlash, Regal & Tajiri participated in a "Tag Team Turmoil" match in which four teams competed for the World tag team titles. Regal & Tajiri were eliminated by La Résistance who, in turn, were eliminated by Hurricane and Rosey, who became the new champions.

Regal is admonished by the referee following a typical heel action

On June 30, 2005, Regal was sent to SmackDown! in an 11-person trade as part of the draft, leaving his tag team partner Eugene behind.[5] Regal's first match on SmackDown! was scheduled for July 7 against Matt Morgan, in what was to be Morgan's final WWE match.

On Velocity, Regal cut a promo telling the crowd that he had returned to his former self, referring to himself as a "scoundrel" and a "rogue", this promo ended when Scotty ran to the ring and attacked Regal.

On the February 3 edition of SmackDown!, Regal and Burchill told SmackDown! "network representative" Palmer Canon that they no longer wanted to be a tag team so they could go their separate ways. During this discussion Burchill informed Canon that his family heritage traces back to the pirate Blackbeard, and that he wanted to do a pirate gimmick on SmackDown!.[3] Burchill, with his babyface persona, started a rivalry with former team mate Regal, who would weekly try to convince Burchill to return to his ruthless ways. Regal faced Burchill (having his first match as a pirate) on the March 10 edition of SmackDown!.[6] Burchill defeated William Regal using his Walking the Plank move.[6] Burchill once again defeated Regal in a singles match on the April 7, 2006 SmackDown!.

After announcing he was finished being a whipping boy, he introduced his old tag team partner Dave Taylor, and the two went on to easily defeat the team of Scotty 2 Hotty and Funaki. Though the pair reformed their previous tag team, Regal and Taylor did not reuse the Blue Bloods gimmick, instead portraying themselves as sadistic fighters.

On the September 3 edition of RAW', Regal was attacked by WWE Champion John Cena in retaliation for rewarding Randy Orton with a WWE title shot after Orton had kicked John Cena's father in the head the previous week. Regal was missing from Raw programming for one month due to this attack (kayfabe). He made his return as General Manager on the October 1 edition of RAW as a heel once more by siding with Vince McMahon. Regal still wrestles on Raw, especially during foreign tours. On the December 31 edition of RAW, Triple H was scheduled to face Ric Flair, in which Flair's win or retire ultimatum was still active. Regal announced that if Triple H lost the match in any way, he would not participate in the Royal Rumble match at the 2008 Royal Rumble. This was to give Triple H a reason to want to win the match rather than avoid ending the career of his best friend and idol. Regal was scheduled to compete against Hornswoggle that night with Mr. McMahon at ringside.[15] McMahon tossed Regal some brass knuckles during the match and encouraged him to use them on Hornswoggle.[15] Regal let Hornswoggle go and left the ring.[15] During the Flair vs. Triple H match, Triple H performed a Pedigree on Flair and appeared to be going for the pin when Regal suddenly punched Flair in the face with the brass knuckles. This gave Flair the win by disqualification, ensuring that his career will live on and that Triple H will not be part of the Royal Rumble.[16].
