Fit Finlay AKA as Dave Finlay has worked all over the world.  We talk to him about his start in the business over in England and what it was like to be the son of a famous pro wrestler.  How did he break into the business and what was it like touring on the road at such a young age with his father.  His thoughts on meeting Dynamite Kid early on.  What was it like to tour for New Japan?

You will hear how he got his start in WCW and why he did not like Eric Bischoff that much.  What was his early relationship with Steven Regal like?  What about his early matches with Chris Benoit and Alex Wright.  What did he really think of Booker T!!

We talk about the death of Chris Benoit, to the infamous junkyard match that put Dave out of action for quite a long time.  His thoughts on Brian Knobbs, and everything else that he saw in the WCW locker room during its heyday.  Dave talks about the power of the NWO stars and what he really thought of Kevin Nash as he has a great Nash story.  What about Hogan and Flair and even Vince Russo.

The interview would not be complete if we did not talk all about his WWE run from 2001 until 2011.   We talk about all of his major matches with Bobby Lashley, Matt Hardy, RVD, Chris Benoit, Rey jr and so many more.  The list is too long to write all of the names that he talked about because he worked with them all, but we talk about every one of them!!

Dave talks about  the locker room fight with Batista and Booker T, you will find out who really won!!!  We also talk about the early careers of Randy Orton, Batista, John Cena, CM Punk and so many more!!

Dave also worked as a WWE road agent and we talk all about the behind the scene stories of what really went on with the Divas.  Who did he think had the “it” factor.  Who gave him problems and who did he think would make it to the next level.  We talk about his duties on the road and what lead to him getting fired by Johnny Ace of the WWE and how it all went down.
