Beloved indy darling, one of the greatest of his generation, one of the best champions in ROH history. There are a lot of ways one could describe Nigel McGuinnes. But one of the ways he for a while described himself was failure. In his documentary the Last of McGuinness (One of the best wrestling documentaries out there, watch it seriously) he talks about a biceps injury hindering his way into the WWE, being signed to TNA, getting Hepatitis B and being mistreated by the company which led to his release. Making McGuinness decide to retire from the business. This took a beating to McGuinness self confidence, that he could not make while friends of his like Bryan Danielson and Austin Aries went on to success in WWE and TNA respectively. McGuinness claimed that he could have been just as big as both of them but at the same time was happy for their success. As we have seen since filming it Nigel has not completely retired from wrestling. Currently serving as ROH's authority figure as well as working backstage with health and medical issues. He is also now in a much better place mentally as he himself said. But here is the main subject. If Nigel had made it to the E or continued with TNA. Would he have become a main stay? Would he have become a main eventer or in the least a mid card main stay? Lord knows that Nigel could deliver in the ring and cut a damn good promo when needed. While no CM Punk on the stick he isn't a Davey Richards either. Would Nigel have succeeded in mainstream wrestling? Talk about his career and discuss.
