Hornswoggle Suspended from WWE, Mark Henry Talks Retirement Match


WWE’s version of “Wee-man” has had a wee too much fun as of late and in turn has violated the World Wrestling Entertainment’s policy on those matters. WWE released a statement earlier today:

The official WWE website is reporting the suspension of Hornswoggle:

“In accordance with its Talent Wellness Program, WWE has suspended Dylan Postl (Hornswoggle) for 30 days, effective immediately, for his first violation of the company’s policy.”

Hornswoggle’s most prominent run came when he aligned himself with Finlay as a leprechaun to the Irishman who “loved to fight.” He hasn’t been on too much WWE television as of late after a brief feud with El Torito that culminated into a very forgettable “Wee-L-C” match. Hornswoggle was last seen on the WWE’s version of Jackass called “Swerved” only shown on the WWE Network.

In other news, Mark Henry has long been talking about retiring which is rumored to be taking place sometime in 2016, he addressed this on a recent episode the WNS Podcast:

“I want to go out in dramatic fashion,” Henry explained. “Win, lose or draw I want to have a retirement match and a lot of guys have done it. Maybe even let the WWE Universe decide what my match will be. I’m not sure yet but it’s imminent. It’s coming.”

Henry also revealed that WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan is the person he would like to end his career against:

“Daniel Bryan is one of my favorite wrestlers. As a talent, as an entertainer, the way our fans love and revere him. There’s never been a match he and I have been in where it was bad. He is one that I would definitely like to consider. He’s been gone a long time dealing with injuries and I know how that feels and I know that somebody like Daniel with his credentials would be really cool,” Henry said.

Currently Henry has been demoted to mid-card action and is cannon fodder to anybody the WWE feels needs a good push into the spotlight. Recently he was taken out by the current “Mr. Money in the Bank” Sheamus in a match that lasted maybe 4 minutes tops at last week’s Monday Night Raw. A retirement match with Bryan will have to wait until Daniel can pass the WWE’s test to perform back in the ring.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
