NJPW star David Finlay recently appeared on Cultaholic’s Desert Island Graps podcast, where he talked about a number of topics including how his dad and WWE producer Fit Finlay has spoken to him about joining WWE and how he will only entertain that option once he has accomplished all he needs to accomplish in Japan.

David Finlay said, “I mean, my only (WWE) contact is my dad, my only contact needs to be my dad so, on one hand, it’s never been talked about officially but on the other hand, about every other time I go over for dinner, it gets talked about because he’s like, ‘Yeah, you can come work with me’ so it’s like, mhm, when I’ve accomplished all I need to accomplish in Japan, maybe I’ll entertain the option but for right now, I got a IWGP Global Heavyweight Championship to win and make world-famous.”

He also talked about how his brother, Brogan Finlay, has signed with WWE NXT.

“So I guess we got my dad as an option (potentially being a good addition to BULLET CLUB). The old wise man in this day and age I would say. 63 years old, I wouldn’t wanna be on his bad side still. We got my little brother, who actually just signed to NXT… Yeah (I’ve given him some brotherly wisdom), save your money. I’m really proud of him. He just turned 21 this year. That was the age I was when I started (at) the dojo. He’s been very good with, ‘I don’t wanna do what dad did, I don’t wanna do what you did. I wanna be my own man’ so, I’ve been obviously trying to sweet talk him into like, ‘Hey! You can do Japan for a few years’ but, he was like, ‘Nah. I wanna go do my own path.’ So, I’m very proud of him. I think he’s gonna be very successful in about two, three years. The Finlays are gonna be running the entire industry.”
