Ring of Honor announced a big change on Sunday, as the company confirmed that matchmaker Nigel McGuinness will no longer be company matchmaker. McGuinness hasn't wrestled in years as he stepped away from the ring due to medical issues following his TNA run, and has been working in his on-screen role ever since.
ROH announced the news on their official website.
“Earlier this evening, with heavy hearts, Ring of Honor officials accepted the resignation of ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness.
Speculation surrounding McGuinness’ sudden resignation has begun to boil among ROH officials. While some chastised his leniency toward Bullet Club’s behavior in the summer, others believe that now McGuinness may be under extreme duress from Bullet Club’s Adam Cole for changing the stipulations of the Final Battle main event just days in advance.
One of ROH’s all-time greats, the former ROH World Champion has resigned. ROH management has announced it is forming an executive committee to oversee matchmaking in ROH. We wish Nigel McGuinness the best of luck in his future.”
