On this page you’ll find all merchandize cards from William Regal that were published in 2010 and that I actually own. I don’t copy & paste pictures from all around the internet. So chances are that these aren’t all cards available. If you like to suggest one or more cards for me to complete my collection, just give me a hint in the commentary section on this page. Thanks in advance!

William Regal’s journey through life has been documented in the very interesting and popular book, Walking a Golden Mile. During his tenure in WWE, Regal has been the King of the Ring, an Intercontinental Champion and World Tag Team Champion, as well serving multiple stints as general manager of Raw. William enjoys collecting snakes and lizards.
Note about the cards on the right: This obviously are two variations of the card on the left but with blue resp. gold frame on the obverse side and of limited number with these ones being no. 0326/2010 (blue) and 29/50 (gold).
I’m glad they mentioned William Regal’s autobiography on one of his cards, because I can very much recommend it. It’s funny and touching at the same time and also well written. You can get a copy here or the Kindle-version here or here.
Michael Cole says… How such a “refined” man can be so ruthless is beyond me. This former general manager of Monday Night Raw and 2008 King of the Ring is as nasty and physical as they come. Mr. Regal learned his craft as a teen, bare-knuckle fighting at the carnivals in his hometown of Blackpool, England. When you are in the ring with Regal, prepare to suffer in the most physical of ways, “sunshine.”
Note about the card on the right: This obviously is a variation of the card on the left but with coloured dots on the obverse side. It’s not a limited card.
Regal has lived by one credo since his days as a fighter on the carnival circuit of Blackpool, England – hit hard and hit often. Once Regal gets the advantage in a match, the multi-time champ very rarely gives it up.
Text from the reverse side (Arn Anderson):
“The Enforcer” had the rare combinations of great technical prowess and hard-hitting brawling. The master of the Spinebuster, Arn Anderson held multiple titles in his NWA, WCW and WWE career.

William Regal had long been viewed as one of the most technically sound competitors in the business. With that solid reputation behind him, Regal headed into Royal Rumble 2002 with the Intercontinental Championship in his sights. Regal challenged Edge in a classic bout and came away the victor that night, cementing his legacy. Regal would hold on the title until WrestleMania X8.
The picture on the left side are actually two alternative reverse sides to the championship card. These are parts of two separate championship puzzles, the upper reverse side from the Unified Puzzle, the lower reverse side from the Intercontinental Puzzle.
History of William Regal:
William Regal has been a mainstay in WWE for just about a decade. As entertaining as he has been often outside the ring, it’s his in-ring work that has made him one of the most hated, yet most respected Superstars in WWE. Regal has held titles such as the Intercontinental and now-defunct European championships for lengthy reigns, was the 2008 King of the Ring and is a constant title threat. Regal also served a term as WWE’s commissioner during the WCW / ECW Invasion.
Regal is one example of the hard-nosed British style of sports-entertainment. A product of the streets of Blackpool, England, Regal began his career in the rough-and-ready carnival circuit, taking on all comers. Not one to abandon his roots, Regal has proudly represented his homeland wherever he has competed, including in WCW and WWE.
