Nigel McGuinness was furloughed by WWE in April. Many fans were left scratching their heads over that decision, because McGuinness was regarded by many as the best commentator in WWE. But once WWE announced that NKT UK is returning on Sept. 17, rumors started to pop up that McGuinness would be back from furlough.
Today, the media was given a sneak peek of NXT UK’s set at the BTSport studio in London, and it was confirmed that McGuinness will be back on commentary (remotely) for NXT UK:
Andy Shepherd will commentate for NXT UK at these tapings from a booth above the studios and Nigel McGuinness will be alongside him - from America!— Alex McCarthy (@AlexM_talkSPORT) September 3, 2020
Glad to see Nigel back and BT Sport have put a lot of effort in to make sure it works.
TalkSPORT’s Alex McCarthy showed off a few more interesting tidbits from today’s viewing:

Shawn Michaels leads the tapings virtually from the U.S. His voice booms over the whole studio when he wants to address the talent. pic.twitter.com/cwAfnQJ8GN
And of course there is NXT UK’s new intro music:
