Former WWE Superstar Hornswoggle (real name Dylan Postl) was recently a guest on the Pancakes and Powerslams Show to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Here are the highlights:
How long he knew about being Vince McMahon’s storyline son: “Two hours. I thought it was a complete joke, and it was awesome to me because it was my hometown,” said Postl. He also revealed who approached him for the angle. “Bruce Prichard came up to me and he said, ‘I need your phone.’ [I said], ‘for what?’ [He said], ‘I need your phone.’ [I responded] ‘Okay?’ He held my phone for the night so it wouldn’t get out, and told me.”
WWE filming a “Where are they now” on him: “It was incredible,” said Postl. “[WWE] told me back in September, they asked me if I’d be available and I said of course. On such a huge platform, WWE, and so it would be dumb not to. I didn’t know what to expect going into it and the day they were filming, I picked up my son from school, and we just started filming. It was literally just like a day at home, I didn’t even realize that there were cameras there, hardly.
“It was awesome seeing the end product. I don’t ever watch myself in my matches. I overly critique myself, and I don’t enjoy them then. But this one… I was very happy. It didn’t come off bitter, it didn’t come off anything other than positive. It made everyone see how grateful I am for the opportunities I got in WWE.”
