During an interview with Uproxx, former WWE wrestler Hornswoggle talked about how his WWE Wellness Policy test failure is affecting dating on Tinder for him, getting a standing ovation from Vince McMahon after his WeeLC match & more.
Below are the highlights:
On backstage reaction to his WeeLC match with El Torito:
“Unexpected. People expected it to be us biting each other’s asses on top of ladders. Instead, we beat the piss outta each other and ourselves. It was a lot of moving parts, man. Everyone was so excited. Everyone involved was so excited, between the agents and all the guys involved, we were so excited for everything.
And I remember getting … I say it at every interview. I get to the back and didn’t get ungeared for like two hours. I was like, “This is so awesome.” Easily, maybe my only standing ovation in Gorilla, even from Vince, which made me feel really good about myself. It was awesome. That’s the one where, if someone asks what I do, I give them that. I’ve only watched it once. It’s one of the three matches in my career I’ve watched. I’ve never watched any more than that. I don’t watch my stuff.”
On if he had a rematch with Torito:
“House of Hardcore. We did one … It was the week … Two or three weeks after we got released. Maybe a month. But it was very fast after we got released. My company, ACW Wisconsin, tried to bring him in last year but he got hurt literally three days before, and we couldn’t do it. And it was gonna be awesome for me cause it was my hometown, my company. It would’ve been awesome to do. We’ll see again. But it’ll happen again I’m sure. It was fun. We’ll never recreate that because first off, no one has the budget for 19 tables, and all that stuff.
That’s another thing. Drew McIntyre just flipping through a table for literally no reason. And I remember him saying that in … When we were talking, he goes, “What if we put Torito on there, and I flip, and he just moves?” I said, “And then what?” He goes, “Well, he’ll go through the table.” I go, “But no one’s there.” He goes, “Then I’m done for the match. Like I’m done.” “But no one’s on the table, Drew.” He goes, “Eh. It’ll be okay.” And he jumped so high in the air and literally just demolished him. And then they did the whole ladder spot, when the one ladder literally flipped onto Torito, I thought he was dead. And I’m literally in the ring going, “Oh no. That’s it. Done.” But it’s every moving part and that match is so awesome.
And I remember going through Gorilla, saying, “Thank you,” and all that, and taking it in all there kinda there. And then immediately running to the props truck and saying, “I need a piece of the table.” So they gave me one, and they had everyone sign it. It’s framed in my office.”
On how WWE’s Wellness policy failure (drug test failure) is affecting him:
“I say it all the time. That’s the one thing I’m sour about is how they all handled that, just [me] not being able to piss, and how they handled the whole situation. But it’s in the past. I’ve moved far on from that. I just hated like … I had a Tinder date one time, and after that she looked me up; she Googled me. And it was of the first things that came up. And I was like … She goes, “Oh, you like doing like … You a big drug guy?” I go, “No. I just couldn’t piss.” She goes, “Oh, okay.” I was like, “I legitimately couldn’t piss.” So, that’s what it’s … It’s ruining Tinder for me. Essentially, WWE’s drug testing is ruining Tinder for me. That’s the headline.”
