Why Nigel McGuinness didn’t sign with WWE
According to reports, the reason Nigel McGuinness ended up signing with TNA instead of WWE is because WWE withdrew its contract offer after he failed the company’s pre-screening test. This does not mean that McGuinness, who was believed to be WWE-bound last month, failed a drug test. The speculation is that it was a medical issue that caused the deal to fall through.
Whether TNA knew about McGuinness’ test failure is unknown, and apparently the company does not have a pre-screening test. Hopefully, McGuinness is not putting his health at risk by wrestling.
The former Ring of Honor champion makes his TNA debut on Thursday’s episode of Impact under the name of Desmond Wolf.
