Speaking with Mark Hoke on a recent episode of “The Mark Hoke Show,” Nigel McGuinness discussed his storyline-beef with Bryan Danielson in AEW, considering their history from years ago in Ring of Honor.
Nigel, who currently works as a commentator for AEW/ROH, said he doesn’t think Danielson would fight him.
“Not a chance. He’s afraid of me. No chance he’d ever get in the ring with me. He knows he’s got nothing to gain from that. He’s got his long list of cherry-picked opponents that he wants for his odyssey so he can go back to his little humble abode in Seattle and dig his clams out of the beach every weekend, so I don’t think he has any interest in that. That’s all well and good. It’s probably better for him. I enjoy making fun of him and belittling him. Obviously, the truth is, he’s an incredible wrestler, one of the best that I ever faced. But that can’t take away from the vitriol and legit jealous of and sort of resentment that I have towards someone, their career was at the same sort of level as me, and then our stars certainly went in different directions,” McGuinness said.
