Swoggle recently spoke with Connor Casey of ComicBook and discussed numerous topics. He described his new show, Short Stories With Swoggle, and he reflected on his recent work with both IMPACT Wrestling and All Elite Wrestling. Here are some highlights, transcription credit of Connor Casey of ComicBook.
Frst, Swoggle previewed his new show. “‘It’s…essentially a Saturday morning cartoon based off pro wrestling, which is pretty awesome,'” said Swoggle via Casey. “‘I’m essentially controlling all the stories. Essentially like the snowman in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, I’m the tie-in for all the stories.
“‘Chris [Jericho] and I have been buddies for a decent amount [of time],'” said Swoggle via Jericho. “‘He literally texted me. He goes, “Hey, are you traveling?” I said, “I would love to be.’ He said, “Okay.” He goes, “We have this really crazy idea. I’d love you to be part of it. We’re essentially doing a [The Hangover]-esque sketch.” I said, “Let me guess, I’m the baby?” He goes, “You’re the baby.” I said, “Perfect.” I said, “This couldn’t be more fitting” as to anyone who knows me outside of the ring closely that I fit that part in the Hangover sketch very well.
“‘I was flown to Las Vegas to film it. We filmed. I went to Caesar’s Palace to the actual Hangover suite, which they being like all of us, me being a Hangover fan, it was pretty awesome. We filmed in the suite. I was there for an hour for an eight-second thing. Then I flew home that night, so I was literally in Vegas for less than 12 hours. We filmed the whole thing, it was pretty awesome.'”
Swoggle has been featured in IMPACT Wrestling, where he made an eye-opening appearance as “The Wee-nomenal One.”
