Source: Kayfabe Wrestling RadioFormer ROH World Champion Nigel McGuinness joined Kayfabe Wrestling Radio this past Tuesday night. Here are some highlights from the interview:
Who will win the ROH Tag Team title tournament: "Well, they (The Briscos) are the founding fathers of tag team wrestling, pretty much, in Ring of Honor. They've been here since the beginning and they've certainly got everything going for them going into this one, without a doubt. But, I don't know. Jimmy Jacobs and Steve Corino, they've got that something, that ability to turn it on, on that big stage."
Which Jay Lethal do we get this weekend vs Homicide: the good Lethal or the edgier Lethal: "I think it will be the latter, you know what I mean. Jay's been around Ring of Honor for a long time; he's obviously had some success with other companies as well. I think, certainly now, he's very aware, that now's the time to step up and move to the next level in Ring of Honor, or not. And I think Homicide is going to be a great test to that end."
Can ROH carve out a niche for itself in the larger professional wrestling climate: "Yes, it's definitely possible. We've got a lot of talented guys here, both in-ring and outside of the ring. You've just got to understand that there's a lot that goes into doing that; when you talk about the effect that ECW had on the wrestling industry, it was a different world that the wrestling industry today. Professional wrestling, as a whole is down, the interest in professional wrestling is down now. In the late 90's it was, arguably, in the biggest boom it had ever seen in its history. The fact that we've got Sinclair behind us now, and that not to take anything away from when Cary (Silkin) was in charge or anything else, but to have that sort of national stage, is certainly a huge opportunity for us to carve out a niche, and I'm excited to see what we can do to do that."
