Reggie Recalls Scary Experience Falling Out A Second Story Window


Former 24/7 Champion Reggie recalled falling out of a window as a child while he was practicing his acrobatic skills.

Reggie holds the record for being the longest reigning 24/7 Champion, and in recent weeks he’s been involved in a partnership with current champion Dana Brooke. The dynamic performer is known for his acrobatic style, one that fits him well as he used to perform with Cirque du Soleil.

Speaking to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, Reggie shared that his love of acrobatics began when he and his brothers used to do flips on mattresses in their backyard as children.

“So there were two moments I realized that. One moment is when I was flipping, my brothers and I had mattresses in the backyard and they were back there doing a back tuck and then another back tuck, consecutive back tucks. I didn’t know how to do two. I would do one and I would stop and then I would do the second one. I’m like, ‘How do I do that?’

“I remember I was sitting in my underwear in my room watching out the window. I was looking at my brothers do it and then everything slowed down, legit, it slowed down, ‘Okay, land the first back tuck and use that rebound to go into a second one.’ So I saw that ran outside in my underwear and I did one, two. Super excited. So there was that moment.”

However, Reggie revealed that flipping on mattresses didn’t always end well for him, as once it led to him falling out of his second story bedroom window. Thankfully, he came out of the experience unscathed.

“Then there was a moment that wasn’t so pretty where I was flipping in my bed and fell out the window. I bounced back up and just went back into the house. I’m like, ‘Am I actually a superhero? Because that was a two-story window.’ I fell out of the window at two stories and I was pretty young.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Reggie recalled a conversation with Vince McMahon where the Chairman claimed to do similar acrobatic feats to the former circus performer back in his younger days.

On the most recent episode of Monday Night Raw, Reggie and Dana Brooke defeated Akira Tozawa and Tamina in tornado tag team action. Full results from the March 21st Raw can be found here.
