• SmackDown Wrestler Reveals What Vince McMahon Appreciates About Him
During an interview with Inside The Ropes, SmackDown wrestler Rick Boogs talked about meeting Vince McMahon when he signed with WWE.
Boogs noted that Vince appreciates that he is an intense individual and loves lifting weights, just like the WWE CEO.
Here’s what Boogs (who is currently Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura’s tag team partner and hype man) said:
“I was very fortunate when I started, they flew me out to Stamford to get a tour, see the warehouse and all that. I then got a chance to talk with Vince for a bit and like you said, just bantered. Just a chat, nothing too businessy in a sense.
We are both similar in a sense, we are both intense dudes and just love crushing some weights, he appreciated that about me. He is great at communicating and letting you know what he wants and what he doesn’t want. Kicking it off with that first conversation was great, I felt like I can connect with this guy.
And now on TV or whatever it may be, if there is some aggression he wants…he is very blunt, he knows what he wants and he will drive that point home, and he wants you to know what he is saying.
Some people might take it the wrong way, but I am very appreciative of how he is like, ‘I like this, I don’t like this, try this…’.
It just makes it easier to know where you are going. I love his ideas, he likes characters as well, so it doesn’t hurt, that’s for sure. You want me to be a big character? I want to do that too, so we are on the same page.”
Boogs is incredibly strong. You can check out a video of him working out below:
