Finlay Speaks On WWE Firing, Retiring From Wrestling


The following are interview highlights with former WWE Superstar David "Fit" Finlay:

Finlay on his WWE release: "I was shocked to get fired, but it was totally my fault. WWE trusted me and I broke that trust. I let everyone down. For that I am really sorry."

Finlay on working babyface for the first time with Hornswoggle: "I never was on that side of the fence before. It took a while to become comfortable. I knew what I was doing, but on the inside it didn't feel right. It was going against my personality. I'd rather be knocking heads around than hugging babies. But I got into it. I learned a lot and enjoyed it."

Finlay on when he will retire from pro wrestling: "I don't want to embarrass the business, myself or my family by trying to hang on for one more match like some people do when their work starts to fade. I want someone to be honest with me and tell me it's time to quit. I'd rather do that than throw all my years in this business into the trash."
