McGuinness not going to WWE but to.....TNA!
« on: October 20, 2009, 02:52:09 pm »
Prowrestling.net is reporting that Nigel McGuiness is backstage at the TNA tapings today, and that Bryan Danielson may be on his way to the company as well. Apparently, they had agreed IN PRINCIPLE to WWE deals, but WWE may have dragged its feet and took their sweet time in signing them.

With guys like Booker and Steiner gone, this could be a great addition

I guess they'll be the newest members of World Elite.

Nigel was backstage at BFG, and I could see him at TNA, but Danielson has a strong connection to WWE through Shawn Michaels, who was his first trainer.  I just don't see him going to TNA.

With guys like Booker and Steiner gone, who were the weak points in the MEM, we have world elite ascendant (although I'm not impressed by any of them save the British Invasion).  They were so weak for faces, they moved Matt Morgan face, and they'd have to move one or two more face for McGuinness to join the British Invasion (unless they make him anti-British Invasion British face, which might be interesting)

I think McMahon could figure out something for Danielson (perhaps as going as far as to letting him keep his gimmick, a la CM Punk), but I don't think TNA could run a successful gimmick with American Dragon (Cornette could have, but he's gone).  McGuinness may go to TNA, but Danielson will go north.

Professional wrestling will never be the same.
Turd - I have never really bought into the genius that is Turd.  I know he is well loved and considered a great poster.  His brand of humor just doesn't do it for me.

It seems Nigel got tired of waiting on Johnny Ace to finalize on the deal and pretty much showed up at BFG

Danielson on the other hand might get in WWE since Regal and HBK have been pulling for him for over a year.

Nigel's new ring name will be Desmond Hawk and he'll be facing Kurt Angle at Turning Point.

Hate the name but Nigel vs. Angle = awesome-o....or it turns into Angle vs. Joe from 2007

Seems that WWE backed out on Nigel after looking at his physical. Either means his body is too torn up to work a WWE schedule or he tested positive for roids or other drufgs.  :-\

It's Desmond Wolfe, by the way, and TNA made him shave off the spikes.  You can barely recognize him.  Going after Kurt Angle was so weird, too.  I guess they're really trying to establish Kurt as a face quickly (which will be tough because he's been the top heel for so long), but if McGuinness competes well, that will solidify him as a major force in TNA fast.  Although Angle will almost certainly beat him at Turning Point, he doesn't have to put him over to let some of his own shine rub off on Nigel.

After what I considered to be a massive bore of the MEM running rampant, I think we'll see the vets and younger guys mix it up together.  And that's a good thing.

First time seeing him so a super RKO is his finisher?

Also how many shaved head guys are in tna now?

Curiuos to see if the 3 way with Daniels, Joe and AJ will be as good as the first two (the second coming in Ultimate X) doubt they can top the first one

Joe/AJ/Daniels first one should have been a five star match.  That's how awesome it was.  It doesn't have to be that to be good.  This was a surprise though.

The first AJ/Joe/Daniels match did get a 5 star review, the only one TNA has ever had.

As for Nigel err Desmond Wolfe's debut, good to see him feuding with Angle and that Tower of London looked sick. Wait till you see him break Angle's neck with his 1,000 different lariats and the London Dungeon submission
