Despite Vince McMahon making the call a few months ago of not wanting Fit Finlay to wrestle on television anymore due to his older age, he has continued to be booked at Smackdown house show events and for good reason. The company wants Finlay to work with younger talent (like Goldust on the Raw brand). The feeling is that rookies vs. rookies will not help younger talent advance in the ring, so having them work with Finlay and Goldust at house shows is a huge plus.
