A former WWE star has revealed the reaction he got from Vince McMahon and Triple H for a ‘joke’ match on a PPV.
In 2014, Extreme Rules saw El Torito taking on Hornswoggle in a match that featured an alternative commentary team, ring announcer and referee.
Hornswoggle has now reflected on the match (which can be seen below this news story), revealing the reaction he got from Vince McMahon and Triple H.
Speaking to WrestlingNews.co, Swoggle revealed:
“It was supposed to be presented I believe as a joke and a comedy thing, but we had the best match on the card that night including Evolution vs The Shield in a Street Fight.
“We killed it and I know we did, and I’m going to tell everyone we did. That might not have been a good move on my end, but I didn’t care at that point.
“We all had the mindset, all the 3MB guys and the Matadores and Torito, we all had the mindset, and everyone helping us, agenting and producing the match, had the mindset of, shove it up their ass. If we’re going to be honest, shove it up their ass.
“If they want us to be a Ha Ha comedy thing, let’s just go out there and kill it. It was the greatest thing I’ll ever do in my career.
“That was the first time I ever got a standing ovation in Gorilla, including Vince and Triple H, so that was a pretty cool thing.”
Swoggle would also reveal that the “greatest thing ever” during his time in WWE was joining DX and getting the pyros to go with it, along with working with Triple H and Shawn Michaels.
Hornswoggle joined WWE in 2006 and would remain with the company until his release in May 2016.
