For the first time since WrestleMania 38, Rick Boogs is back on WWE programming.
The Miz came out to the ring on the 1/30 Monday Night Raw and expressed his displeasure about his performance in the 2023 men’s Royal Rumble. Miz also stated that he was not happy about not having an opportunity to qualify for the United States Title Elimination Chamber match.
He was interrupted by Adam Pearce, who introduced Miz’s opponent for the night, the returning Rick Boogs. Boogs scored a win over Miz in quick fashion.
