NXT coach William Regal underwent a second neck operation last week which was performed by WWE’s medical director Dr. Joseph Maroon.
In an interview with the WWE.COM, Regal revealed that he underwent a procedure called laminectomy, where they go in and completely clean out the calcium deposits from the back. The surgery lasted just over an hour and involved working on the C3, C4, C5, and C6 vertebrae.
Regal noted that he won’t be able to make the WWE European tour next month however he’ll be good to go to tour with NXT in December. He won’t be wrestling anytime soon and said that it’s too early to see if it’s a good idea or not to step in the ring but he’s not “desperate” to wrestle again.
