David Finlay was a guest on Cultaholic's Desert Island Grapes podcast. One of the topics was his father, as well as WWE producer Fit Finlay. David revealed that he had talked to him about joining WWE. However, Finlay has no plans to join WWE anytime soon.

“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 said, as quoted by pwmania.com!

David Finlay: My brother, Brogan, signed to NXT

His brother, Brogan Finlay, signed with WWE NXT. Although David had some interesting advice for Brogan, he took a different route. David hopes that Brogan will succeed and build a great career.

“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.”
