Recently on The Ross Report, 'Good Ol' J.R.' Jim Ross interviewed Dylan Postl, formerly known as WWE's Hornswoggle. Postl talked about preferring the term 'midget' to 'little person', his WeeLC match against El Torito, whether he ever refused a storyline in WWE, and the longest time he ever stayed under a professional wrestling ring.
Postl stated that he prefers the term 'midget' to 'little person' because the former is more commonly known in the professional wrestling industry.
"I like the term 'midgets'. It makes me money. You can't put 'little person wrestling' on a poster. Otherwise, it's like, 'what is that?' [If] you put 'midget wrestling' on a poster, people know what it is, so I always called myself a midget and I don't ever care if other people do the same thing either."
Postl claimed that his Extreme Rules 2014 WeeLC match with El Torito was the best match of his professional wrestling career.
"That match alone, I will fully say that that WeeLC match made my career. It's the best thing I've ever done with the company, bar-none. We got to work too. We did our comedy stuff, but we actually got to work."
According to Postl, he never turned down any storylines or otherwise refused to do anything while with WWE. With that said, he pointed out two things that he did not want to do, but did nonetheless.
"I never said, 'no, I'm not going to do that'. Two things stand out that I really didn't care for, there was the one where they dressed me as a cow. Obviously, I didn't care for it, but I knew it was for 'hahas' for fun stuff. And then, when they put me in a diaper as the New Year's baby, I was like, 'ugh, here we go'."
'Swoggle' said that the longest he had to stay under a professional wrestling ring was when he was revealed as Vince McMahon's illegitimate son on the September 10, 2007 episode of WWE Monday Night RAW.
"To be honest, it was probably the 'Vince's son day' because I went, I ended up being an hour before doors because they did all the rehearsals and I was under there because we wanted to kayfabe the boys even. So I went an hour before doors and then it was the last segment, so it ended up being probably an hour before doors, an hour before that, so that's two hours, and it ended up being five or six hours."
