Rick Boogs Says Vince McMahon Appreciated Him During WWE Performance Center Tapings

Rick Boogs has said that he was told Vince McMahon enjoyed his antics while WWE was taping shows in the Performance Center in 2020.

Before the introduction of the WWE ThunderDome, episodes of Raw and SmackDown were taped in the Performance Center, with NXT talents acting as the live crowd.

Speaking with Louis Dangoor of GiveMeSport, Rick Boogs recalled using the opportunity to showcase his over-the-top personality, despite his background role.

Boogs also said that he heard that McMahon told higher-ups to let him be himself, noting that it was later expressed to him that his high energy was appreciated during the tapings.

Discussing Vince McMahon’s reaction to him ‘going crazy’, Boogs said:

“So I was like screaming my head off and going crazy. Higher ups are like ‘We’ve got to just tone it down a little bit. Take it back a notch…’ I heard that like Vince (McMahon) was like ‘Nah don’t, just let him just be himself’.

“I got a lot of people, especially like when I got called up and I was in the locker room with everyone on the regular, they all expressed how much they appreciated the high energy.”

Boogs officially joined the SmackDown roster in May, aligning himself with Shinsuke Nakamura. In a separate interview, the WWE star explained why he believes he’s ‘similar in a sense‘ to McMahon.
