- TNA executive Eric Bischoff gave a strong endorsement for former TNA wrestler Nigel McGuinness (Desmond Wolfe in TNA) on his Facebook page Thursday. “Best of luck to Nigel McGuinness in his efforts to produce his project,” Bischoff said about Nigel’s newKickstarter project to release a DVD documentary. “Class guy, and could have been one of the best of the new generation.”

- Former TNA/ROH wrestler Nigel McGuinness (Desmond Wolfe) is attempting to release a DVD documentary explaining his pro wrestling journey and why he quit wrestling related to his health issues. McGuinness has launched a fundraiser through Kickstarter.com to raise funds to produce, edit, and distribute the DVD.

“Moving on from wrestling is the toughest decision I have ever had to make. I am looking to get the funding, not only to make the documentary, but also to learn the skills to be able to explore other avenues beyond the ring in the future,” McGuinness says about why the doc is important to him. “More than this though, I think it’s a story everyone will enjoy and learn from. I know I did.”

A trailer for the documentary is below from Kickstarter.com
