The Boogeyman Says He’s Still Under A WWE Legends Contract, Recalls Vince McMahon Telling The Roster To Fear His Character


WWE legend The Boogeyman was a recent guest on the Ryback Show to talk all things pro-wrestling, including whether he’s still under contract with WWE. Highlights from the interview can be found below.

Whether he’s still under a contract with WWE:

Yeah, I’m still under contract – still under the Legend’s Contract. They had me going down [to Florida]. Myself, Mark Henry, Ricky Steamboat, Nia Jax, Jimmy Hart – we sold [WrestleMania 36] tickets at the Tampa Stadium down there prior to the pandemic. So, that was my last thing with them. But as far as TV-wise, it was the RAW 25th Anniversary.

His thoughts on Bray Wyatt:

Bray Wyatt is a cool dude. I would love to work with him, and he plays The Fiend character so f—ing well,” stated Boogeyman. “So freaking well, man. He does a great job, and I actually liked him before the mask. He’s a good dude, and it would be a great thing working with him because I will totally play off him and vice versa when you have those two types of characters.

When Vince McMahon told the roster to fear him:

I don’t know if that was the case, but I kind of started taking notes of only guys wrestling me and getting fired. And if you recall, there was a production meeting one time and Vince gathered everybody around the ring and had me in the center of the ring,” said Boogeyman. “The first degree of The Boogeyman and the whole bit he said, ‘You see that guy? You see that f—ing guy? God da–it, he eats worms for Christ’s sake. Everybody on this roster better fear him! And Boogeyman, God da–it, I give you permission to make them fear you if they don’t fear you! It was everybody in talent. They were around the ring and he’s got Big Show, Taker, all the big names, Benoit. That was the list of people. So, I know Vince had big plans for The Boogeyman.
