Prowrestling.net is reporting that former ROH star and newly signed TNA talent Nigel McGuiness (who will now go by the name of Desmond Wolf) was not offered a deal from WWE after he failed a prescreening test from the company. As a result, WWE pulled their verbal offer and never offered him an official contract.
McGuinness had been telling people at the tapings yesterday that WWE simply took too long to offer him a deal, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. Were told this was not a situation where McGuinness failed a drug test and that it was more of a medically related test that caused WWE to pull the offer. It remains unknown at this time if he shared this information with TNA management as TNA does not have a prescreening process.
