Backstage Belief On What Regal Took That Led To Suspension

It is well known that William Regal has had problems with recreational drugs in the past; ultimately losing his job two times over it (early 1998 from WCW and April 1999 from WWE), as well as a stint in rehab (early 1999). However, he has long since claimed to be clean. No one has said anything on Regal struggling to maintain his sobriety, so that the theory of him failing a drug test due to recreational drugs appears to be out.

Regal has been telling people that believes he took an illegal supplement by mistake, which led to his drug failure. However, a number of people are skeptical of that, mostly because so many athletes have used that excuse in the past and its rarely believed.

The belief backstage among some in WWE is that Regal started taking steroids again somewhat recently due to his renewed push after winning the King of the Ring tournament. Seeing how he was being pushed as an active wrestler and not just a suited-up authority figure, he needed to get back on the gas to look his absolute best.

Obviously, Regal doesn't have the chiseled bodybuilder look that many people associate with steroid use, but he also didn't have that look when he was nabbed for buying steroids online last August. According to Sports Illustrated, Regal purchased a variety of steroids including stanozolol, somatropin, genotropin and anastrozole between November 2004 and November 2006 through Signature Pharmacy, an alleged illegal internet drug distribution network.

Sucks for Regal, I was enjoying his push and also his heel GM
Hopefully he comes back and doesn't get fired, I'm sure the push will continue, well I hope it does!
