Damn.

As noted earlier, former Ring of Honor Champion Nigel McGuinness is backstage at the TNA iMPACT! Zone in Orlando, FL for tonight's taping. Although Ring of Honor recently issued a statement that McGuiness had "agreed in principle" to a deal with World Wrestling Entertainment, he has opted to sign with TNA instead and is expected to debut at tonight's tapings. Nigel is expected to get a new ring name in TNA Wrestling. WWE apparently dragged its feet on signing the duo, so TNA swooped in and signed Nigel. Danielson very well could be next although we do not have that confirmed just yet.
I was really looking forward to seeing McGuinness in WWE, even more so than Danielson. Hopefully WWE hurry up and sign Danielson and TNA don't get a hold of him aswell.

Excellent news I didn't want him signing for WWE. At least now he will be used more correctly, perhaps as a new addition to the British Invasion.

I guess he doesn't have confidence in his ability to shine in WWE and believes that he'll get a bigger chance in TNA. That's how I see it personally.

I really hope Danielson doesn't do the same thing either.

I hope Danielson goes TNA too. Just think, Danielson v Joe, AJ, Daniels, Homicide, Amazing Red, Kaz, Angle, the list goes on. In WWE he would be stuck on ECW feuding with non entities such as Zack Ryder.

First off, Zack Ryder is AWESOME.

Second, eh, I'm disappointed. The WWE is the big leagues so I'd prefer to see him there...but whatever.

TNA could be bigger but they lack the resources WWE have. Ryder is nothing special in my opinion Millz, you see the opponents I pointed out McGuinness can feud with in TNA? I would much rather see those matches than the ones he would have been lumbered with in WWE. Sorry dude I am a TNA mark as you probably can gather.

Yeah I hear ya...lots of potential options in TNA. I guess I just wanted another ROH guy in WWE and see what they can do with him like CM Punk and hopefully shut out the notion they won't push those wrestlers.

There's also a list of epic feuds he could have on WWE. Danielson vs Jericho, Punk, Morrison, Edge, Triple H, Ziggler, Orton, Undertaker.... Also I'm pretty sure everybody would love to see Danielson go up against his mentor, HBK. That would be an epic feud. It's pretty much a dream Wrestlemania match up.

Jericho, Punk, Morrison and Edge I agree but the others I would rather not see to be honest. It's never nice seeing a talented young guy job to a washed up over the hill 40 something.
