WWE Legend ‘Tried To Sell’ Hornswoggle At Hotel

Hornswoggle had a memorable run in WWE, where he had many gimmicks. He was a leprechaun, to Vince McMahon’s illegitimate son, to even a member of DX and the anonymous RAW General Manager. He also teamed up with WWE legend Fit Finlay from 2006 and that lasted a couple of years, as the two proved to be a successful duo.



Fit Finlay recently spoke to WWE Hall Of Famers JBL and Gerald Brisco on their ‘Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw‘, where he revealed that he once tried to sell off Hornswoggle while waiting at a hotel in the Philippines.

“So we’re in the lobby of the hotel in the Philippines somewhere. I see the guy looking at Swoggle like he’s looking at a meal. Right. And I go, ‘hey, you want to buy him?’ So I’ve got Swoggle by his collar and I’m holding on while this guy and myself we’re talking money, we’re going how much? While Swoggle’s looking up and me, like, ‘Wait, no, what are you doing?’ ‘I’m going to sell you it’ll be alright I’ll get you back.’ The guy is talking serious money here, and I’m pushing them towards and pushing Swoggle towards the guy. And he’s going ‘oh no,’ as we said he’s going ‘Dave, Dave, Dave…’ The more serious of this was like 15-minute conversation. And he [Swoggle] is sweating his nuts off because he thinks I’m going to sell him, I would have done it if the money was right.”
