Dylan Postl is best known to WWE fans as Hornswoggle, and even though he might not be part of the WWE roster anymore, Hornswoggle’s name is still attached to some big moments in WWE history.

Of course fans still haven’t forgotten that Hornswoggle was revealed as Vince McMahon’s illegitimate son over 10 years ago, and the former WWE Superstar recently talked about the storyline during an appearance on Pancakes and Powerslams.

For months it appeared that Mr. Kennedy was being built up to be revealed as Vince’s son, but in the end it was Hornswoggle who was revealed to be McMahon’s son.

According to Dylan Postl, he only found out about the reveal a few hours before the show went live, and he thought it was a joke.

“Two hours. I thought it was a complete joke, and it was awesome to me because it was my hometown,” said Postl. “Bruce Prichard came up to me and he said, ‘I need your phone.’ [I said], ‘for what?’ [He said], ‘I need your phone.’ [I responded] ‘Okay?’ He held my phone for the night so it wouldn’t get out, and told me.”

It’s safe to say that there are plenty of other fans around the world who thought it was a joke as well, but alas, that wasn’t the case.
