    Seabs and I were discussing his current whereabouts in a thread the other day, so I thought I'd share.
     
  2. Since the ads on that site are unbearable I'll post it.

    Last I heard he was a FCW trainer? Never even knew he left.
     
  3. He was a road agent but was mysteriously let go sometime in 2011 and was working in the Indies.
     
  4. Stupid question but what does a Road Agent do if I may ask?
     
  5. Apparently at a house show he had Miz go out and interrupt the National Anthem as a way to get heat.
    The U.S. Army National Guard then really complained and wanted him fired.
     
  6. management employee, often a former veteran wrestler, who helps wrestlers set up matches, plans storylines, and relays instructions from the bookers. Often acts as a liaison between wrestlers and higher-level management. Referred to as "producers" by WWE. Sometimes they help train and teach younger active wrestlers and give criticism.
     
  7. :laugh: LOL
     
  8. It was b.s. that Finlay got fired for that (if that's the real reason he got fired), and that's coming from as patriotic an American as you're going to find (note I also said "patriotic", not "jingoistic"). If the National Guard complained and WWE wanted to discipline him, that's fine and they're within their rights to do it. To fire the guy over it is way over the top.

    And, Finlay's a great wrestler, a great trainer, and I'm glad he's back working for WWE if that's where he wants to be.
