David Finlay Says He’ll Die In Top Spot After IWGP Global Title Win



At NJPW ‘Wrestling Dontaku’ (Night Two), David Finlay defeated Nic Nemeth to regain the IWGP Global Heavyweight Championship.

In a post-match interview, the multi-generational star celebrated his win. He said,

“Look how beautiful this [title] looks on my shoulder. Now, this is more than just a belt to me, this is more than just a title. How can I be telling my War Dogs to bring me bodies and bring me gold if I’m not out there doing it first every single damn time, like the savage king that I am? Because fuck leaders. Leaders come and go. Leaders can be replaced, but I will die in this top spot because that is how I do things. My boys wouldn’t have it any other way.

“Now, I have spent the last few months righting the wrongs of the past. I got my revenge on Billy ‘The Bitch’, Will Ospreay. I got my revenge on Nic Nemeth. I proved to the world that I was the rightful winner of the New Japan Cup. But one tiny, tiny blemish remains, and that blemish is you, SANADA. Now, I don’t care where. I don’t care when. Frankly, I really don’t care what condition you’re in. Just know, you’re up first, b*tch.

“Now, enough of the chit-chat. We’ve got beers to drink. We’ve got championships to celebrate. Drinks are on me tonight, boys.”

Finlay first won the title at Wrestle Kingdom 18 in a Triple Threat match with Jon Moxley and Will Ospreay before losing the title to Nemeth at New Beginning in Sapporo.

SANADA is currently out of action and was recently in Tokyo, Japan to undergo medical appraisal. There is no word on when he will return to the ring.
