• Hornswoggle Opens Up About His Brother Committing Suicide At Age 16

During a recent appearance on WINC podcast, former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Hornswoggle talked about his autobiography “Life Is Short And So Am I”.

Hornswoggle noted that the autobiography includes some rough stories about his family.

Below is what he said:

“I went to my dad and stepmom about it and was like, ‘Hey guys. It’s too rough.’ They both didn’t know what to tell me and said it’s your book. To be honest, even as rough as it is, I took some stuff about my real mom out of it because it was too ‘pot-shotty’.

It was a rough upbringing at times with her and my relationship with her for 25 years is nothing. But I also wanted to put it out there in that it was a huge speed bump in my life. But I’m over it and I’m doing pretty damn good.

My real mom had two kids, my half-sister Tara and my half-brother Clint. When I was growing up Clint was a big wrestling fan and he instilled that into me. I was immediately encapsulated with everything pro wrestling.

When he was 16, and after my parents divorced, he didn’t take that well and his relationship with our mom was strained at times. Because of the divorce and his demons, he committed suicide at 16 years old.

It’s one of those things where it happened but I’m gonna try to not to let it affect me. How long can you cry and be sad about it? I remember the fun moments we had together and you can’t let something like that affect you and not be able to enjoy life.”
