Ex-WWE Personality Rejoins Ring Of Honor
It was a big night for Ring of Honor in Los Angeles on the 31st of March as the company presented Supercard of Honor and in a night of great action, it also proved to be a homecoming for former WWE broadcaster, Nigel McGuinness.
Nigel McGuinness made his name in wrestling as part of Ring of Honor, holding both the ROH Pure and ROH World Championships. During his time in the promotion, he shared the ring with the likes of Bryan Danielson, Kevin Steen [Owens], and Tyler Black [Seth Rollins] among many other wrestling greats.
McGuinness also spent a year in TNA as Desmond Wolfe but his career was cut short and in 2011 he embarked on a retirement tour, ending his days in the ring. McGuinness then went on to rejoin Ring of Honor as an announcer and in 2016 he was picked up by WWE working on the likes of NXT, 205 Live, Main Event, and NXT UK during his six years with the company before he was released in October 2022.
Before Supercard of Honor went live on pay-per-view, ROH ring announcer Bobby Cruise introduced McGuinness as the surprise announcer for the show as he joined Ian Riccaboni and Caprice Coleman at the announce table.
