The Sun Reports:
The 33-year-old Englishman says signing with WWE would be a dream come true.
Speaking exclusively to SunSport, he said: "I am not 100 percent on board yet. I still have to cross some I's and dot some T's but it's looking positive.
"It's been a long time coming for sure. Ten years since I first took a bump and about eighteen since that fateful day I sat in Wembley Stadium [at SummerSlam 1992] and said I was one day going be a pro-wrestler.
"Still, like I said, I don't want to tempt fate until it's all signed sealed and delivered."
McGuiness made his name playing the cocky, punkish, English heel for Ring of Honor, regarded as the number three wrestling group in the United States.
Ring of Honor promoter Cary Silkin said: "Nigel has been a tremendous leader in the Ring of Honor locker room and, without question, a wonderful performer.
"His merits, both in and out of the ring are extraordinary and any locker room with Nigel McGuinness in it is better for it.
"We couldn't be happier for Nigel as he takes the next step in his stellar wrestling career, and we extend our heartfelt gratitude to Nigel for all he's worked for and through."
McGuiness, whose signature move is called The Tower of London, hopes to follow in the footsteps of fellow Brits William Regal, Paul Burchill, Katie Lea and ROH pal Bryan Danielson — who has also inked terms with Vince McMahon's promotion.
Silkin added: "Everyone at Ring of Honor is extremely proud to have called both Nigel McGuinness and Bryan Danielson their own; and we looking forward to seeing their stars shine brighter than ever.
"Like many of the wonderful sons of Ring of Honor that have written new chapters in their wrestling annals, we will look on with a bittersweet smile to the future where we have no doubt that Nigel and Bryan will amaze the masses — just like they've done so many times in Ring of Honor."
