Former WWE star and agent to the Divas division, Fit Finlay, has addressed the criticism lobbied towards the WWE Divas, specifically the former models who have been signed by WWE.
Finlay told the website IMetaWrestler.com: “I do think it’s unfair. I’ve had a great relationship with all the girls, we’ve trusted each other and I taught them quite a bit, and it was a real privilege for me to work with those girls and see them grow. But they’re under a microscope, you know, and it’s easy for anyone to sit at home and criticize. You can’t look back at Moolah and all those other people and compare them. Wrestling has changed, it’s different and it’s just moved on.”
Speaking on the criticism thrown at former models, he says: “Those girls are so beautiful, and most of them are models, but every single one of them that I’ve worked with has got a passion to be in the ring. If they didn’t – they wouldn’t be there. I know nothing about football, absolutely nothing. And I can sit and watch and pull it apart, but I can’t go in and do it. Opinions are like backsides, everybody’s got one. I think the girls are very unfortunate that people try to pull them apart. They’re not as good as this, not as good as that. Hey, here’s my opinion: shut your mouth unless you try it.”
“I’ve seen them all get busted open, you know. Trish dislocated her shoulder, or her elbow I think it was. Victoria slapped Beth in the face and broke her jaw, I’ve seen all sorts. And for someone to sit at home and pull the girls apart, especially girls doing this as a profession, as their job, they need to just sit back and enjoy it. As I said before, if you’ve never done it, shut your mouth.”
