If you are a true fan of World Wrestling Entertainment(WWE), then the name Eric Bugenhagen for sure isn’t new to you. Apart from being a popular face in WWE, he is a professional wrestler, bodybuilder, and a former powerlifter. However, there is much more his life offers that this blog is going to unveil.
He was born in Franklin, Wisconsin on December 1, 1987. So far Eric hasn’t disclosed anything regarding his parents or siblings. This has left fans with a great mystery. He was a two-time wrestling winner during his high school period. Further, he attended the University of Wisconsin where he majored in Kinesiology and History. Even though he holds American citizenship, his ethnicity is Caucasian.
Besides enjoying inside the four corners of the ring, he is fond of playing guitar. In addition to that, he is also an animal lover and pets a dog.
He has a total net of about $1 million, which he earned on his own throughout his career. An online source says that the average earnings of WWE NXT players are around $80000 per year.
How can I let go of this detail of a bodybuilder like Eric Bugenhagen? Eric has a height of 6 ft. 1 inch while his weight is 106. He has black hair with brown eyes. You will also get to see a tattoo of a WWE logo on his left chest. He has overlapped the tattoo with the skull meaning he is the only one and only ruler of the WWE developmental territory NXT. Nevertheless, he has a jaw-dropping physique.
Eric is a married man. However, he has kept her wife’s profile hidden from the media. Yet another time leaving fans with great mystery. The couple together is blessed with a child. And it seems like they are having a pretty good time with each other.
During 2012 he competed in the Badger’s wrestling team as a heavyweight and serves the team as a great strength. Furthermore, he was also a four-year letter-winner in college. Likewise, Eric even ranked among the top ten amateur wrestlers in 2011. Later he returned under the new ring name “Ric Boog” after a long time. The following year he wrestled against Kaussius Ohno. In the following month, he teamed with Riddick Moss in a tag match. Sadly he lost to Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford). On October 19, 2017, he officially began his WWE career. And established himself as one of the WWE superstars.
