- 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
