Liam Alexander-Stewart of Inside the Ropes recently sat down to chat with wrestling legend, accomplished author, actor and stand up comedian Dylan Postl FKA Hornswoggle, during the interview, Postl discussed a range of topics including fatherhood, tales for the road, the only moment in wrestling he regrets and who he sees as the most entertaining wrestler in the industries currently.
Postl would refence his run in August of 2014 that saw him dawn a Cows costume whilst teaming with El Torito of Los Matadores.
The man formerly known as Hornswoggle would state:
“The most the worst thing, I guess, that when they had me dressed as a cow, that was really like the down point, a real negative moment for me, and I was really pissed off at it and I knew why. And I got it. It was what it was, I got paid to be on television, but that part that that was like the one moment where I was like, someone’s screwing with me here. I don’t. But whatever.”
The man behind such great wrestling moments as WeeLC, The Anonymous RAW GM and more would continue, discussing why although he was dissatisfied about the segment he managed to take it on the chin and reflect on positive moments just months before:
“Again, two months before that, I put on the best pay per view of that whole year in the WeeLC Match, so I can’t be too pissed off about it.”
The 2014 Extreme Rules PPV would feature Hornswoggle vs El Torito in a WeeLC match including appearances from former WWE Champions Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal, Postl would reflect on this match identifying it as his careers crowning moment and a match that will forever be his greatest ever match.
“I mean, obviously, WeeLC. I’ll never top that ever in my life. Nothing I do in life will ever top WeeLC. It was the greatest match of my life easily. But all those moments, like I look at I think it was the 15th anniversary of RAW. I opened the show. I had three segments during the show. And the closing shot was me with Steve Austin pouring beer on Vince McMahon like it doesn’t get. But that same show I posed with Hulk Hogan like it doesn’t get better than that. And so I look at that like, again, I’m supposed to be here for only six months. They told me this could be a six-month schtick and I got two weeks under 10 years and so many memorable things.”
The one-time son of Vince McMahon would round up his thoughts on his time in the WWE, describing the whole experience as fun and a fantastic memory:
“That’s always kind of like I look back. I’ve never been I never watch my stuff back. Still to this day, I just don’t if it comes up on a PPV, I skip it. But just it’s I think back and lately, it’s finally hit me like, man, that was really fun. Like that was really, really cool what you did. And I did a lot of fun things. And I was always like, hey, what do we have? Oh, why don’t we have Hornswoggle do it? 100%, we need GM. Here’s Hornswoggle. We need a DX Mascot, We need a son. But I was way OK stepping up to the plate. Every guest host I worked with, every guest host every week. It’s just it’s awesome.”
Finally, Postl would end by discussing his recent cameo mentions on WWE TV at the hands of legendary WWE 24/7 Champion R-Truth, Postl would express extreme gratitude at the WWE for allowing him to be mentioned and to develop a lasting legacy within professional wrestling:
“That’s a crazy thing. Like even something like that. Like they didn’t have to write that into the thing. And then it was every week, literally every week. And it’s one of those things that I don’t ever think of legacy stuff, but it’s pretty awesome.”
