It’s a long way to the top if you want to be a world champion in the world of professional wrestling, but a world champion is something that most wrestlers aspire to be.
A few months ago former NXT star Rick Bugenhagen was called up to the WWE main roster, and when he was called up the former Bugenhangen announced that his new name is Rick Boogs.
Chris Jericho recently talked about Rick’s new name during an appearance on Keepin’ It 100, and he made it clear that he does not think the SmackDown star will win a world title due to his name.
“I hate the fact they changed his name from Bugenhagen, which is one of the coolest names. Bugenhagen! It was Rick Bugenhagen. That’s a fuc*ing name, man. ‘Boog’ – it sounds like a fuc*ing booger. I think he’s super entertaining, very hyper. I think he would have a chance to do something if they were to give his name Bugenhagen. I don’t think Boogs… I always equate it to, say, ‘World Champion Chris Jericho’ – that would work. ‘Your World Champion Disco Inferno’ – doesn’t work. Same thing with Rick Boogs – there will never be a World Champion called Rick Boogs.”
