• Rick Boogs Gives An Update After WrestleMania 38 Injury

In the opening match of Night 1 of WrestleMania 38, The Usos defeated Shinsuke Nakamura & Rick Boogs to retain the SmackDown Tag Team Championship.

This was Rick’s 1st ever WrestleMania match and he got injured during it.

He had one of The Usos on his shoulders and the other Uso also jumped on top of him.

Boogs couldn’t handle the weight and went down. He immediately held his leg in pain and the trainers began checking on him outside of the ring.

After the match, he was carried to the back.

Later in the show, Michael Cole revealed that Boogs suffered a torn quad patella and will undergo surgery in the next few days.

Boogs wrote the following on Instagram after WrestleMania and explained what went wrong:

“From the highest of highs to lowest of lows. Having my beautiful wife with me to experience my first WrestleMania. Getting the incredible opportunity to open the show! Being able to demonstrate brute strength in front of millions of viewers!

Unfortunately, the doctor told me my quad was too strong for the tendon and it was flexing so hard, it ripped the tendon totally off the bone.

I’m still incredibly grateful for the experience and for all the love and support.

History proves I will come back bigger, better, and stronger. IT’S A MINDSET.”

On his YouTube channel, Boogs gave the following update on his recovery:

“It’s been a while fellas, I just wanted to give you an update here.

There’s not much cool and exciting I can do in terms of power, horsepower, strength, and testing limits.

I’m just doing machines at the gym, like a cookie-cutter right now, that’s all I can do.

I can’t use the lower extremity, you know what I’m saying, the horse leg, I’ve gotta let that puppy heal. It’s about physical therapy.

As of right now, the goal this week for PT was 85 degrees knee flexion. Sticky Ricky accomplished 112 degrees knee flexion.

I’m about a month ahead crushing it, setting PRs.”
