WWE Superestar Hornswoggle did an interview with PostCrescent.com last week under his real name, Dylan Postl. During the interview he stated that his WeeLC match with El Torito at the Extreme Rules PPV following WrestleMania "stole the show". 

I get four, five tweets literally every day saying, “Why do you still have a job?” And I guess it’s staying under the radar more than anything (laughs). I really think this whole storyline and these matches with (El) Torito has really made people look at me like, wow, he can do this. …

Before this, I really didn’t have matches. I’d wrestle a little boogeyman or I’d juggle around or use squirt guns, but now I’m having legit wrestling matches. Our WeeLC match at “Extreme Rules” stole the show. I don’t care what anyone says. It was a pre-show to the pay-per-view and I will go to bat for that match against any match that was on that night. That match stole the show because people didn’t expect what we did and the crowd tore the roof off.

New Jersey fans are the most ruthless fans in the country for booing and hating on whatever’s in the ring if they don’t like it. We had them chanting, “This is awesome” and “Holy (expletive)” the whole match. That’s when I realized I can do this. It felt so good to finally have one of those moments after eight years. It was great and I really think people are starting to take me seriously and realize that I’m more than a circus act.
