ROH News: Update on ROH World Champion Nigel McGuinness's arm injury (w/RADICAN analysis)

By Sean Radican, Torch Columnist

PWTorch has learned that ROH World Champion Nigel McGuinness, who injured his arm in the main event of the March 20 ROH show held in Elizabeth, Pa in a tag match that featured him teaming with Davey Richards against KENTA & El Generico, has not made any decisions regarding having surgery on his arm at this point.

McGuinness defeated KENTA to retain the ROH World Title on the March 21 event in Manhattan, N.Y. and according to live reports, it was evident his arm was injured. McGuinness and KENTA were able to work around the injury and put on an excellent match by all accounts.

McGuinness's current plan is going to be to wait a week to see how his arm feels before making any decisions regarding surgery, which would put him on the shelf for a significant amount of time.

McGuinness is scheduled to defend the ROH World Title against Jerry Lynn on April 3 in Houston, Texas.

RADICAN'S ANALYSIS

After it initially appeared McGuinness was definitely going to have to have surgery, it appears he is now going to wait and see if he feels he can work through the injury to his arm and avoid surgery. If McGuinness feels he can work through the injury, it would be great news for ROH.

It's hard to imagine ROH going forward on television and PPV without McGuinness, who has become the most valuable wrestler in the promotion over the course of the last two years. When watching an ROH DVD or PPV, McGuinness's match can be counted on to be one of the best on the entire card.

If McGuinness can't work through the injury, it will certainly be interesting to see who management chooses to unseat him as champion. The last two years haven't been the best for the company, but McGuinness has been a highlight, as he's put together an incredible body of work as champion, despite a lack of credible rivals to feud with him over the title outside of Bryan Danielson.
