Nigel McGuinness was one of the most exciting superstars to make a name for themselves in Ring of Honor. The former WWE color commentator is also known to hang in the ring with the likes of Bryan Danielson, Jimmy Rave, and Chris Hero. Interestingly enough, he still wants one more match despite his retirement.

McGuinness has provided commentary for both ROH and AEW Collision, but fans wondered whether he would ever return to the squared circle. After all, reports suggested that he had been taking measures to try to return to the ring.

That never happened in the end, as a match between Bryan Danielson and Nigel McGuiness couldn’t come to fruition at AEW All In in Wembley Stadium due to Danielson’s broken arm injury.

While speaking on Grilling JR, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross revealed that Nigel McGuiness definitely wants to come out of retirement and have one more match somewhere down the road.


“I enjoy working with Kevin Kelly and Nigel. Nigel’s getting really good. Not that Kevin isn’t but Nigel is kind of a newcomer in that world and he’s doing a great job. I enjoy working with him. He’s fun, he’s a good guy.

“I know he wants to have one more match somewhere down the road and I hope he gets it. I saw online the other day Connie, where Bryan Danielson said he and Nigel would be a hell of a match at Wembley (ALL IN).”

Nigel McGuiness’ last match took place in December 2011, while his last televised bout was in September 2010 against Stevie Richards on TNA Xplosion. With Bryan Danielson set to end his full-time in-ring career by next year, we wonder if Danielson vs McGuiness can still happen.

What’s your view on what Jim Ross said? Are you disappointed he and Bryan Danielson never faced each other again? Let us know in the comments!
