Nigel McGuinness Confirms He Can Still Wrestle

Nigel McGuinness, the seasoned color commentator for AEW Collision, draws from his 12 years of wrestling experience to enhance the broadcast team. Despite not competing in an official match since 2011, the ex-ROH World Champion recently revealed on Wrestling Weekly with Les Thatcher and Victor Sosa that he's still capable of wrestling. He shared his return to the ring 'last week' from the podcast recording date, feeling 'perfectly okay' afterward.

He acknowledged Danielson's intelligence, albeit with 'weird viewpoints,' explaining how their debates, either in the car or backstage, add a playful layer to their relationship.
