Former WWE Superstar Hornswoggle was one of the mainstays of WWE television during the mid to late 2000s. Despite his short appearance, Hornswoggle is a proper veteran in the business. Now it appears that Hornswoggle already expected his WWE release.

Hornswoggle started his WWE from 2006 until his departure back in 2016. During that time, he has given fans numerous memorable moments and solid segments that fans will never forget.

While speaking to PWMania, Hornswoggle talked about his release from Vince McMahon’s company. Swoggle admitted that he already expected his WWE release in advance.

“Yeah, it was I mean, I knew it was coming. I just didn’t know when. I was off the road for probably a year and a half. I just knew it was coming. I knew any moment. But knowing it’s coming and it actually happening are two very different things, obviously. And I had a young son at the time, I was a single dad. So it’s a very world changing and life changing thing to happen. Going from your dream job, making great money to nothing is a big reality check.


“I’d say like everything kind of paused and I had to take a deep breath and go alright, what now? But hey, when I got hired, they told me this is gonna be a six month gig. And it was somehow two weeks under 10 years, but I made it work. Yeah, I’m either decent at my job or I stayed under the radar really well.”

Hornswoggle would also love to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame. We will have to wait and see whether that will happen one day, as his in-ring career might be over for good now.
