Hornswoggle was interviewed by Brian Soscia and his radio show. Here are some highlights from the interview.
What drew him into wrestling: “Ultimate Warrior. Everything about him. The entrance, the face paint, just his look, everything. I was the biggest Ultimate Warrior fan. [when Warrior beat Hogan] He won, that was the biggest night of my life. [when Warrior came back and saved Hogan] Saved Hogan, Wrestlemania 8. And then he had that match with Triple H at Wrestlemania 12. That didn’t turn out so well [for Triple H]. That’s like the last guy on my list that I need to meet. I heard he’s around. They always say don’t meet your heroes because you’ll be let down. I don’t want to be let down.”
If he is offended by the term midget wrestler: “That’s fully what I am. If you put little person wrestler on a poster, people are going to say oh is that kids? Is that weird, odd people? You put midget wrestling they know what it is. I am technically not a midget. I’m a dwarf, or a little person, but I consider myself a midget. I just don’t care enough to, I’m not going to waste anger on the word midget.”
If he still collects wrestling merchandise: “I still 100 percent [collect]. Me and Hawkins and Ryder have the collection wars and figure wars about who got what. I still have never owned the Legion of Doom Hasbro’s.”
Who would be on Hornswoggle’s wrestling Mt. Rushmore: “Cena, HBK, Taker and yeah, I want to say Bret Hart or Hogan but I can’t [decide]. It’s a legacy here, but I think Hogan because it would be the eras.”
