More Speculation on Chris Jericho Leaving WWE, Finlay’s Status with WWE

– There has been a lot of speculation about Chris Jericho leaving WWE when his contract expires in September of this year. Jericho, a RAW brand star, has released new UK tour dates for his band Fozzy in October and some of them are Monday night dates. This could add to the speculation that Jericho may take some time off when his deal is up in September. Jericho has said himself that he doesn’t plan on leaving WWE anytime soon but anything is possible. Here are Fozzy’s dates in October:

10th – Cardiff, Millenium Hall
11th – Sheffield, Corporation, a Monday night
13th – Edinburgh, Studio 24
14th – Belfast, Spring & Airbreak
15th – Dublin, Button Factory
16th – Manchester, Club Academy 3
17th – Leicster, Leicster Academy
18th – Norwich, Waterfront, a Monday night
19th – Southampton, Taylors
20th – Yeovil, The Orange

– Even though Vince McMahon made the call of not having Finlay on WWE TV anymore, he’s still being booked on live events to work with younger talents. WWE is using Finlay on the SmackDown brand and Goldust on the RAW brand in similar roles at live events.

    Jericho did the Fozzy Band thing once before he will be back …Finlay was a cool wrestler I agree with comment above me they Use Goldust hahahahaha Wow Vince thanks for using the Rhodes family disgrace (goldust) in matches..


    WTF! Finlay and Goldust are nothin alike . dat Gold jackass can t even lace Finlay s boots! Finlay is a great wrestler i cud evn see him as the chmp.Wwe is down rating his ability and quite frankly if i were him i d go to the boss and retrieve ma dignity and more respect other wise i d be on my way to TNA!

    i read all the comment bout Goldust in this section.
    I strongly agree. Goldust couldnt lace up Finlays boots..
    However.. Let not completely ignore his history. Hes a former U.S, I.C, I think European and hes been Tag Champions in both WWE and WCW..
    And hes a hell of a comedy act.. So dont completely discount using him on a spot even if for undercard development on

    wow.. umm.. actually finlay is like 45 years old and the only match on tv i saw him on this year was like a smackdown battle royal in which he sucked… he can hardly move in the ring..

    and goldust is argueably in the best shape of his life and in my opinion one of the best wrestlers in-ring i have seen in my life. he could be fighting for the US/IC title easily if only he was made to look stronger and be respected instead of jobbing next to santino and the rest of those… i always wanted him and cody to team up somehow and fight for tag titles at least. but that will never happen 😛
