William Regal explained his infamous match vs Goldberg

In a recent video with Inside The Ropes, wrestling legend William Regal talked about his infamous match with Bill Goldberg. The clash between the two superstars took place on the February 9 episode of WCW Nitro. In contrary to initial plans, the match went on for longer that it should have.

Regal adopted a stiff and aggressive style, landing numerous hard shots on his opponent and pushing The Myth to his limits. Bill eventually closed the match after executing a spear and a jackhammer, marking the end of the bout after six minutes. It was the longest match of his career at that time.
