WWE's William Regal shares X-ray of his neck to warn current wrestlers

William Regal spent three decades as an in-ring performer, and though he was never one of WWE's top stars, Regal was a two-time Intercontinental Champion and a five-time Hardcore Champion, frequently wrestling in some of the company's most dangerous match types. 

Regal has since become a mentor for young wrestlers, working with the NXT brand and at the WWE Performance Center. On Monday, he tweeted a chilling X-ray of his damaged neck, and warned future WWE stars not to take the same risks he did over the course of his career.
