If you haven't heard the story of Hornswoggle and The Rock having heat with each other, today's your lucky day. That's because the latter gave an interview to and explained the situation in detail, even going so far as to reveal the conversation that took place between the two when they finally cleared the air.

Hornswoggle had caused a fuss when he called out Rock for having wrist notes during a promo on Raw after he came back for his feud with John Cena. When "The Great One" approached Hornswoggle, here's how the conversation went:

The Rock: Why you got to call me out like that?

Hornswoggle: The first time I met you, you thought I was a Make a Wish kid.

The Rock: What!?

Hornswoggle: Yeah, I met you backstage the night you came back in [Anaheim], when you were revealed as the guest host for WrestleMania, and you thought I was a Make a Wish kid. You tapped me on the shoulder and said, ‘Did you have a good time tonight buddy?' Then you walked off and you realized it, then you said to Big Show, ‘Hornswoggle thinks I thought he was a Make a Wish kid, and I did think he was.'

Hornswoggle: So I don't pull any punches now when I say things about you. Because you are so out of the loop, I've been on TV for 8 years now, and you thought I was a visitor?

The Rock: Yeah, yeah I did. Not gonna lie.

It's noted that the two "hashed everything out" and are on good terms now.

Considering the circumstances, Hornswoggle had a fairly good reason to be upset, no? Still, imagining that story actually playing out backstage at a WWE show is good for a laugh.
