Publisher's Summary

Heart, determination, and triumph

This is the story of a boy who fell in love with wrestling before he was able to walk. Born with achondroplasia, a condition that causes disproportionate dwarfism, Dylan Postl had endured multiple surgeries by the age of 12. And yet, he held on to the dream that he would one day become a professional wrestler. Ignoring the naysayers and against doctors' recommendations, Postl began training in his teens, and he soon began appearing on local independent shows. Before he turned 20, he was signed by WWE to play the role of Irish grappler Finlay's feisty sidekick, Hornswoggle, and remained a fixture in the company for a full decade.

While most of Postl's adult life has been spent in the wild world of the wrestling industry, his is more than a story of a little person's journey through a world of giants; it's a memoir of elation and anguish, triumph and disappointment, and of how an endlessly positive outlook combined with the unwavering support of family and friends helped a long shot become a success in his industry and a loving, responsible father.

gonna learn today

Dylan had explained a lot, I knew some things about wrestling but he also goes more in depth on some things i didn't expect him to nor did I expect he would go into a little bit of detail on Benoit and Mr Kennedy.

One of the best wrestling books I’ve read

Wow, I was surprised with how much I enjoyed this audiobook. I just finished Kane’s book and figured I’d give this a try and it was 10x better than Kane’s (which is solid in its own right). Whether you’re a fan of hornswoggle or not, give this book a try.

Great book

I wasn't sure what to expect since I was never a big "Hornswoggle" fan - in fact outside of the WeeLC match, I can't really think of anything I remember him doing as I didn't watch wrestling for most of his run. BUT I was going on a kick of reading all the wrestling books on Audible and this was one - so I said I'll give it a download and see how it goes.

With that said this was a really fun. Hornswoggle doesn't suffer from the "woe is me" dramaqueen stuff and as such the book is 100000x better. There's lot of stories, lots of travels, and a lot about WWE.

If you just want to read a wrestling book this is for you.
If you just want an enjoyable read, this is the book for you.
If you just want to read an entertaining book, this is the book for you.

Also Dylan does a great job on his own narration.
