Desmond WolfeNigel McGuinness – Let's make the above discussion official. I imagine that the above views remain the same. Desmond Wolfe was a name he used when he was with TNA but since he has left I propose that per WP:COMMONNAME we move the page back to Nigel McGuinness, the name that he used for most of his career and the one by which most wrestling fans recognise him by.

  • Supported - I have no idea why the frogsplash an administrator decided to move to Desmond Wolfe in the first place - a couple of novice editors gave bad arguments for the move whilst three experienced editors were opposed. Nigel McGuinness is indubitably the COMMONNAME - hell, the wrestling media regularly referred to him as "the former Nigel McGuinness" (or variants) for most of his TNA tenure. Which was relatively brief and is now history. Also, TNA is not like WWE - a larger audience saw "Nigel McGuinness" wrestle (in the States, Europe and Japan) than ever saw "Desmond Wolfe".

Well, TNA is currently on British TV and ROH hasn't been since The Wrestling Channel went off the air in 2008 but that's still a very good point. The C of E. God Save The Queen! (talk) 16:04, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
  • Support move - Agree with above, back to Nigel McGuinness. Duffs101 (talk) 19:35, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Kayfabe age[edit]

Apparently he just revealed to the Wrestling Observer or some other newsletter that he was actually born in ~1975. I cannot immediately find a citation, but I am sure it is out there. (talk) 05:18, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

He was on Wrestling Observer Radio yesterday and actually said he's 36 and will be 37 next year, so he's born 1976. Online World of Wrestling seems to be the only site that claims he was born 1978, so I'm changing that.Ribbon Salminen (talk) 05:55, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

"After attending Les University"[edit]

Is this a typo for Leeds University? There is no such university in the UK as "Les University" -- ChrisTheDude (talk) 09:49, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Could be LSE - London School of Economics. Walloper1980 (talk) 21:14, 27 May 2017 (UTC)
