Former WWE Superstar Hornswoggle recently appeared as a guest on The Two Man Power Trip Of Wrestling podcast for an interview. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On overcoming obstacles in his life: “I was six years old and I had major back surgery and that paralyzed me for three months. When my back got fixed the first thing the doctor said was no contact sports and no trampolines. Two years into my WWE contract my back doctor called my Dad and said that he didn’t listen to me and my Dad said he didn’t listen to me either and they kind of laughed and he said well at least he’s happy and living his dream. I recently wrestled for House of Hardcore in their TV Title tournament and unfortunately I didn’t go as far as I wanted to but I went three rounds in and the whole thing with that is everyone in my life has told me no you can’t and that this would never work and every obstacle and it is so cliché but literally every obstacle I’ve gotten around and I’ve proved everyone wrong. Tell me I can’t and I’ll prove to you three different ways how I can. I don’t know if that is my mindset or just someone telling me no you are a midget and this won’t work and I say I am going to make it work and I am going to f*cking do it better than you thought I could.”
On his favorite match of his career: “(WeeLc) That match is the single greatest thing I’ll ever do in my career. It wasn’t possibly the best match on the show, it was the best match on the show and that is not me having to say that because it was. I’ve gotten a little bit of heat for saying that in other interviews but it was. It was better than the Shield vs. Evolution and it was better than everything on that card and I know it was. The reason I feel so strongly is because going into it this was a “ha-ha” comedy show and we beat the piss out of each other, all seven of us beat the piss out of each other and it was the greatest night of my career. Everything went off so flawlessly and exactly like we had it and had it in mind to go and it was the best match of my life.”
On Vince McMahon’s words to him before being revealed as his ‘illegitimate son’: “It was just Dylan you are going to be revealed as my son and we are going to try this tonight and going to see what this brings.”
On if the angle met his expectations: “I think it kind of exceeded my expectations because I didn’t know where it was going and I had no idea. Obviously, it ended in a different way than most people would have thought and maybe it ended abruptly but I was happy with it.”
On whether or not he interacted with Vince more during that angle: “At times. Obviously, I wasn’t in his office and hanging out and eating grilled chicken breast. We were doing “backstages” and sometimes it was three times a day with each other and he was very hands on with all of that and it was a lot of time with us working together on it.”
