Ring Of Honor has announced that Nigel McGuinness would no longer be the matchmaker. The way the announcement was worded was obviously keeping with the storylines and the word is that he is still working with the company. I wouldn’t be shocked if this is being done so that they can replace Steve Corino on commentary since Corino is expected to start with WWE next month as a coach at the Performance Center.
ROH announced the following:
BREAKING: MCGUINNESS OUT AS ROH MATCHMAKER
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.
