    Section 1-Version History-------------------------------
    Version 1.0 - Just written.  That's it.
    
    Section 2-Bio-------------------------------------------
    Wrestler: Finlay
    Real Name: Dave Findlay
    Born: October 20, 1958

    Debut: 1978
    Previous Gimmicks:

    - Dave Finlay (WCW)
    - Fit Finlay (WCW)
    Finisher(s):
    - Tombstone Piledriver (WCW)
    - The Celtic Cross (Emerald Fusion) (WWE)

    Section 3-Stats-----------------------------------------
    Weight     - Heavyweight
    Overall    - 85
    Strength   - 7.5
    Submission - 8
    Durability - 7.5
    Technique  - 9
    Speed      - 7
    Charisma   - 7
    Hardcore   - 8.5
    Stamina    - 7
    
    These stats are pretty well rounded, though he has a curiously high technique
    stat, which makes up for his oddly low charisma.  So, reverse a lot, and try
    to get in some weapon shots if you can.  Finlay is pure heel, and must be used
    that way in order to unlock his full potential.
    
    
    Section 4-Movelist--------------------------------------
    
    Key:
    
    Please note, that because this game is multi-platform, GameFAQs will not accept
    movelists for a single character, for a single platform.  Originally, this was
    a movelist/FAQ for the 360, but it has been adapted for all three versions of
    the game.  As I do not own the PS2 or the PSP, this is entirely based off of
    SvR2006's control scheme, and the general layout of all the current controllers
    so if you see anything wrong with any of the controls, I urge you to email me
    the problem, and I will fix it immediately.
    
    ----Buttons----
    1 - A button (360) - X (PS2/PSP).
    2 - B button (360) - Circle (PS2/PSP).
    3 - X button (360) - Square (PS2/PSP).
    4 - Y button (360) - Triangle (PS2/PSP).
    (R) - Right analog stick.
    (L) - Left analog stick.
    (D) - D-Pad
    L - Left
    R - Right
    U - Up
    D - Down
    DLR - Down + left or right
    ULR - Up + left or right
    C - Click (for the sticks)
    [R] - Right bumper (360, PSP) - R1 (PS2) 
    [L] - Left bumper (360, PSP) - L1 (PS2)
    DIR - Direction of your target with the left stick
    
    Note: Stuff like "(R)U" means that you have to move the right stick in the up
        direction.

      It knocks 'em down, which is always a plus.  Though, if you are going for a
      finisher, Toe Kick 1 is the way to go, leaves 'em stunned a moment, so you
      can nail the Celtic Cross.

      Head damage, primarily.  None of these moves are really bad, so pretty much
      just flicking the stick whichever way will work out pretty well.  The Body
      Knee Strike works well too, because it leaves them open for a follow up move.

      An Ultimate Control Move, so many options, so much fun!  Basically, this is a
      really cool move, because of the lack of stamina drain.  It's one of the very
      few, if not ONLY moves in the game that takes no stamina to do...to use it!

      I hate to disagree with the signiature move, but the Piledriver UCM is damn
      strong.  And considering that you'd be smart to work on the head, using it is
      definitely not a bad idea.

      From the past couple picks, it would seem Finlay's strength comes from his
      UCMs.  Though, if you are playing him cleeanly, you are missing out on his
      true potential.  Finlay is a dirty fighter through and through, so if you
      have to play him clean, just keep packing on the head damage.

      Finlay, of Finlay, where would you be without your dirty moves?  You'd be on
      Velocity, that's where.  Anyway, the head pound and eye rake are about equal,
      thought the former drops them to the ground.  It's really your choice, though
      I personally would go with the pound, so you can follow up with stomps, etc.

    	Finlay scores pretty high in the technical grapples section as well, seeing
    	that they are likely his second strongest set.  The clothesline here is
    	very powerful, so I'd make use of it.  Just keep in mind that the T-Bone is
    	a KO move, so it can score you a tricky KO in a parking lot or bar room
    	brawl.

      This is definitely not Finlay's strong section, though with some properly
      executed moves, you can put a real hurtin' on your opponent's legs, and the
      Triple H Low Kick is a good weapon for just that.  Remember, an opponent with
      injured legs moves slower, and that can be key if you're fighting someone
      bigger or faster than Finlay, which isn't rare at all.

      Not as strong, but a TON faster, plus, it doesn't leave you open for a hit
      when they dodge it and get up quickly.

      * = This will change based on the match type.  In a submission match, it will
      be a generic submission move, for example.  Basically, it's a move that can
      always end the match, unless there is an odd stipulation (i.e. ladder match,
      tables match, etc)
      
      Aside from the head damage, the headlock is good because it can end matches,
      of course, as it is a submission A move.

      The kick to groin would've been my reccomendation, except it doesn't give
      dirty points, so it's rather pointless.  The clover leaf, though Finlay 
      does not really use it much, if ever in real life, has substantial leg
      damage, and is a sub A move, so if you find yourself at the opponent's legs
      and don't feel like using a hotspot, hit 'em with a cloverleaf.

    * - Indicates that the opponent must be sitting on the canvas in the corner.
    	
    	The running shoulder is good, because it drops the opponent into a sitting
    	position, so you can quickly follow up with the knee attack, for a good
    	body/head combo.

    	It was either the toss, or the clothesline.  I prefer the toss because it

    	thing.

    	Although the damage is less, you don't fall down if you miss, so the risk
    	is so much less, plus, it has a collision animation, so you are guaranteed

    	A bit of forewarning, using the Knee Drop online is considered extremely
    	cheap, as it cannot be reversed, and is an easy stored finisher.  Howerver,
    	the same does not apply to single player, so use it, considering it has all
    	the high damage, and no collision animation.  Also, missing will not cause
    	you any damage, or give the opponent a free hit.

    	This move is obviously not being selected for the damage, as it does not do
    	as much as the clothesline, nor does it hit the head.  However, missing a
    	clothesline in SvR07 starts a reversal sequence where you run agaisnt the
    	ropes behind your opponent.  True, this can lead to a nice counter, it also
    	leads to massive stamina depletion, which is bad.  Best to stay safe with
    	the shoulder block.

    	Another instance where you can inflict mad leg damage really simply, and

      I've got to go with the DDT here, the head damage is immense, as well as the
      chance of busting your opponent open.  A bloody opponent doesn't fight as
      well, so making 'em bleed is always a positive thing.  Also, I believe this
      is Finlay's ONLY (legal, not counting weapons) move to induce blood.  So that
      is an added bonus.

    Heel Play
    Finlay finds himself most useful as a dirty wrestler, so he can make use of the
    powerful moves in the dirty grapple, and so forth.  However, that does not mean
    you cannot play a realistic Finlay as a clean wrestler, you simply need to make
    use of the many hotspots around the arena, as they seem to be geared towards
    heel wrestlers.  I mean, how often to you see a face slamming the opponent 
    crotch-first into the ring post?  Regardless, you can score massive head damage
    using the apron HS, the stairs, tables, ring post, etc.  So make sure you do,
    and you'll find yourself easily in control of most matches.  Works against big
    guys as well!

    If you have any questions about the wrestler featured in this FAQ (Game-wise,
    not real-life-wise), feel free to email me.  But you absolutely MUST make the
    subject something clear and unmistakable.  For example, I won't open an email
    that is titled "help" or "question".  Make it something so obvious that my 3
    year old brother could understand it. "WWE SvR07 [wrestler name] Question!" or
    something similar.
