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 issued the following update on his injury on Instagram:

“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.”

Rick Boogs is said to be the strongest pound-for-pound wrestler in WWE in 2022.
