Podcast Guest: Nigel McGuinness
Nigel McGuinness is on the commentary team for AEW Collision, and explains how that happened and the role that his abilities as a real-life magician may have played in clinching the deal. He discusses his commentary philosophy, his chemistry with both Kevin Kelly and Ian Riccaboni, finding his voice, and what it was like to transition from wrestler to broadcaster. He shares the story behind the injury that forced his retirement, and his surprise return to commentary at ROH Supercard of Honor PPV in March. Nigel also has stories about CM Punk, Jay Briscoe, and Colt Cobana along with his self-produced documentary, “The Last of McGuinness,” and the reason why he refers to Bryan Danielson as a clam digger. Plus, Nigel reveals the one match that would pull him out of retirement and back into the ring.
