- Our condolences go out to WWE Producer Fit Finlay as his mother passed away this week. Finlay noted earlier this month that his parents spent their 62nd wedding anniversary in the hospital after his mother's health took a bad turn.
"I'd like to thank everyone for your prayers and thoughts. My Mom passed away and is now in a better place and pain free," Finlay wrote on Wednesday.
