It's not easy being a little person, as Dylan Postl found out during his time in the WWE as the gibberish speaking, ankle biting Hornswoggle character that got thrown around more times than he should.
But it wasn't dumb costumes, leg humping, or crazy storylines that are the most shameful moments from Postl's time in the WWE.
Instead, that was the time he met The Rock. What should've been an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime moment was ruined as Rocky thought that Hornswoggle was actually from Make-A-Wish. Seriously.

Postl did a Shoot Interview with Kayfabe Commentaries recently and snippets of it have been released on social media ahead of the full release of the DVD. It includes the 30-year-old talking about his soul-crushing meeting with 'The Great One'.
Apparently, on the night that The Rock returned to the WWE in Miami and electrified the audience as he normally does, Hornswoggle was waiting for him backstage for the chance to meet him for the first time.
So when Rocky got back behind the Gorilla Position, Postl - dressed in a suit - stretched out his hand and said: "it's very good to meet you." The Rock's response was incredible.
"Did you have a good time tonight, buddy?"
According to Postl, he then went to Kofi Kingston and said: "I think The Rock just thought that i was a Make-A-Wish kid!"
Naturally, that was the worst thing he could've possibly done. In a locker room full of guys ready to make jokes at each others expense, The Rock thinking his co-worker is a Make-A-Wish kid is truly fantastic stuff.
So, remember kids, The Rock thinks all short people are from Make-A-Wish. Maybe.
