-- AWE sent out the following interview they did with Fit Finlay:
Fit Finlay asks himself, Where did the sport of wrestling go?
His answer: "For a while, it went down the toilet."
"We need to bring it back, and AWE is doing that in a great way," said Finlay, a former champ in both WWE and WCW, who will be wrestling on AWE's Night of Legends pay-per-view on Oct. 15.
Finlay has seen a lot change in wrestling in his 37 years in and out of the ring. He sees wrestling returning to its grassroots, with Awesome Wrestling Entertainment promoter Marvin Ward leading the way.
"The way it used to be was competitors. The way it used to be was heart and passion, desire, athletes making a difference so that you or anyone else could tag on to these people and make you believe in the bad guy or good guy or whoever it might be in your case."
Wrestling needs to get back to giving fans something they can watch and believe in. That's the gamble that Ward is making with the debut of AWE on pay-per-view.
"This gamble is going to pay off, because I know that people want to watch one of the most watchable events that ever came to any town, any city in any part of the world. I know. I was there," Finlay said.
Finlay will appear at AWE's Night of the Superstars this Saturday in Woodstock, VA, you can get more details by clicking here.
