Background


Postl started his career in the Fox Valley Wrestling Alliance in 2004.


He moved to National Wrestling Alliance in 2005 where he won the Wisconsin X Division Championship and SSW tag team Championship.


In 2006, he relinquished the title to join the World Wrestling Entertainment.


World Wrestling Entertainment


Postl made his WWE debut on the 26th May 2006 in SmackDown as the character Little Bastard, the leprechaun partner of the fellow Irish wrestler, Finlay.


He made regular appearances in the ring by attacking Finlay’s opponents much to the dismay of Finlay.


He even attacked Finlay when he stopped him from attacking. Nevertheless, Finlay won the WWE United States Championship courtesy an involvement on Postl.


In February 2007, Postl changed his ring name to ‘Hornswoggle’, meaning swindle, cheat, hoodwink, or hoax.


The character became more and more aggressive as he started intervening in Money in the Bank and other Championship matches.


Hornswoggle became the WWE Cruiserweight Champion after he pinned Jamie Noble in a Cruiserweight Open at The Great American Bash.


WWE Exit


Postl was suspended from WWE on the 28th of September, 2015 for violation of a wellness policy of the company.


He did not get back in the ring after that and was subsequently released by the management on the 6th of May, 2016.


After WWE


Postl returned to the ACW after being released from WWE. Since then he has featured on shows like Global Force Wrestling, WrestlePro and Impact Wrestling.
