Hornswoggle – ‘Vince McMahon Was Set To Face Finlay At WrestleMania 24’



WWE WrestleMania 24 saw Finlay face JBL in a highly-physical match but the original plan was reportedly for Finlay to face Vince McMahon.

On a recent edition of the “Insight” podcast, Dylan ‘Hornswoggle’ Postl spoke about his feud with Vince McMahon after being revealed as McMahon’s ‘love-child.’ He said,

“It was supposed to be Finlay and Vince at that Wrestlemania. Not only that, but they were going to try to make it for a WWE title. I was like, man, if it was against Vince, the JBL match was enormous, build to it and everything. If it was against Vince, can you imagine how much of that build would have been like at that time? Yeah.”

The match at WrestleMania 24 instead saw Finlay face JBL, who had revealed weeks earlier that Hornswoggle was Finlay’s son and not a McMahon.

Postl added that while the match wasn’t what he first envisioned, he was glad to be a part of the showdown between JBL and Finlay. He said,

“I am very grateful, the match was so fun. And JBL is just the man. He’s the absolute man. And he’d been nothing but great with me. There’s a spot with a trash can in that match that wasn’t talked about. Literally, the last second I saved my own life by just going no, he just whips his trash can because he saw me that’s him thinking on the fly. And he whips the trash can. I had no idea of it. It wasn’t talked about. But it’s like the highlight of the match.”

JBL defeated Finlay in the ‘Belfast Brawl’ at WrestleMania 24 and would enter the WWE Championship picture the following month at WWE Backlash 2008.
