Hornswoggle went on to say that he received around 50 text messages between 10am and 3pm that day, with people in the business checking to see if he was alright. Hornswoggle also revealed that talents get paid for 90 days following their releases but due to the non-compete, they can't appear on iPPV events or indie shows.
Austin also asked about Hornswoggle being suspended in September 2015 for violating the WWE Wellness Policy. Hornswoggle said he wasn't angry about getting fired but he's still angry about that suspension. He said he didn't actually fail the Wellness Policy, he was just unable to provide a urine sample when he was asked for one. He understood they had to suspend him but he wasn't happy with the generic report they issued on his "failure" because he didn't fail. He asked WWE officials to phrase their announcement differently but they wouldn't. Hornswoggle said this was the only thing in 10 years with WWE that rubbed him the wrong way.
Hornswoggle also discussed his various WWE storylines, issues he faced growing up, his son and more. Our own William Windsor will have a detailed recap soon, so stay tuned.
