• “I had a heart problem” – William Regal Had A Terrifying Experience During A WWE PPV Match

On the newest episode of his weekly ‘Gentleman Villain’ podcast, WCW/WWF Legend ‘Sir’ William Regal revealed that he once had a terrifying out of body experience during a tag team match that also featured Rob Van Dam.

The match he talks about took place as part of the ‘WWE No Way Out 2003’ PPV at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on February 23rd 2003 and featured the World Tag Team Champions William Regal & Lance Storm successfully defending their Titles against the team of Kane & Rob Van Dam.

Here’s what Regal had to say:

“There was a pay-per-view for WWE from I believe it was Montreal, whether it was myself and Lance Storm against Kane and RVD. I got slammed.

At the time, I didn’t realize that I had a heart problem. I had an out of body experience where I was actually floating above myself thinking I wish that I could rest and sleep this well at night.

So I’ve read the studies from Oxford when they say you can actually not be right and still get these out-of-body experiences which I think is, I hate to break this to anybody, but if you actually study the dying and the white light calling me, really your brain is still functioning like a chicken having its head cut off right.

So I was above myself looking down on Nick Patrick and Kane going, ‘Are you okay Steve?’, and me going, ‘Leave me alone.’ Luckily, they didn’t let me wrestle the next night in Toronto. Then they found out I had a heart problem.”
