WWE commentator Nigel McGuinness was recently interviewed by Tom Feahney. He discussed a number of topics, including if he misses in-ring competition, moving to “Raw” or “Smackdown Live” and more.

Here are some highlights along with his answers:

Getting a job with WWE:

“It was just something that happened. One day I was told you can do it, I wasn’t so sure but when I was given the chance, I’m now just grateful. I knew when I retired I may be given those chances, to do different things and I am glad that is what has happened.”

If he misses being an in-ring performer:

“There are moments I miss being an in-ring performer. I had a very brief time in a WWE ring a long time, but I can do commentary for a very long time. I am enjoying it and feel I am growing as a performer.”

Being a commentator on “Raw” or “Smackdown Live:”

“I’d be open to anything. In WWE you are given chances, if you respond well, you are given more opportunities. I will just keep doing my thing and see what happens.”
