NXT Star Called Up On SmackDown

NXT Star Called Up On SmackDown

WWE has seemingly called up another NXT star to the SmackDown brand on tonight’s episode of SmackDown.

During the show, King Corbin came to the ring without his crown, and called out the man who stole it, Shinsuke Nakamura. Instead of Nakamura however, NXT star Rik Bugez came to the stage with a guitar.

Rik, now going by the spelling “Rik Boogs”, introduced the King of Strong Style to the ring, playing his theme song on the guitar ahead of his match with King Corbin.

Boogs’ last televised match was in a battle royal at World’s Collide back in 2019, under his real name Eric Bugenhagen
