WWE Network will air a new documentary next week on the career of Nigel McGuinness.

“The Nigel McGuinness Story” is set to premiere on Saturday, January 12 immediately after NXT UK TakeOver, which airs live starting at 2pm ET. 

The synopsis for the documentary is as follows:

The story of Nigel McGuinness, a man with lifelong aspirations of becoming a WWE Superstar, whose career was unceremoniously cut short.

For those unaware, McGuinness had a WWE offer rescinded during his time as a wrestler due to injuries discovered during the pre-signing physical. 

The current runtime is listed as 1 hour. As in the past, the special could be shorter or longer.

No word at this time on how in-depth the documentary goes or whether it will include footage from his stints in Ring of Honor and Impact Wrestling.
