Years active in WWE: 1998-1999, 2000-Present
Finishing move: Regal Stretch
Best heel moment: Winning King of the Ring
Regal was so good at playing a jerk that it overshadowed his talent in the ring. But watch him carefully during his matches, and you’ll realize one thing: This man lived and breathed professional wrestling and did it better than almost anyone else. He knew a thousand different holds, submission maneuvers, and slams, and he was incredibly talented at storytelling in the ring. Take a look at the above clip of him wrestling Finlay during the King of the Ring tournament, and you’ll see what I mean. Regal constantly goes back to working Finlay’s knee, and ultimately, that allows him to win the match. And that’s why Regal is so criminally underrated. His best moments are these low-key, subtle actions that are best appreciated in hindsight.
