As noted here on eWn, former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Hornswoggle, was a recent guest of the “Art Of Wrestling” with Colt Cabana. During a specific portion of the podcast, Hornswoggle touched provided a specific reason as to why being an indepent wrestler may be better than being on the road with WWE 300+ days out of the year.
Here’s Swoggle’s take:
“We get to have fun. In reality, I get to sell merchandise and talk to people and not go to the venue, go to the bus, go to the airport and go to the hotel bar. Kofi and I one time, it was about a year ago actually, we went to the Sydney Zoo. We had like a day where we flew in, we didn’t sleep or anything. Instead, we actually saw and did things and that’s actually the only time you can do stuff is if you didn’t gym or sleep and I didn’t ever gym, obviously. I didn’t do a lot of things, so I’d go and see the town and that and Kofi and I would randomly pick a day on the tour and walk.”
