Nigel McGuinness serves as a commentator for NXT, NXT UK, and 205 Live. The former Superstar amassed fans all over the world as a performer, and had an incredibly memorable feud with Daniel Bryan back in their ROH days before he was forced into retirement.
McGuinness had a lot of potential, and was seen by many to be a massive star in the making. Tragically, McGuinness had to step away from in-ring competition due to devastating injuries he had suffered over the course of his career.
As confirmed by WWE Network News, the special will take place immediately after NXT UK TakeOver, which airs at 2pm ET on January 12. At this time, it is unknown how long the documentary will run for, but it is listed at approximately an hour in length.
The synopsis reads as follows:
The story of Nigel McGuinness, a man with lifelong aspirations of becoming a WWE Superstar, whose career was unceremoniously cut short.
McGuinness competed in promotions such as ROH and Impact Wrestling. It is, therefore, possible that the WWE documentary includes footage of the commentator from his days as a wrestler working for promotions like ROH and Impact.
