Rick Boogs somehow looks even better than before (Picture: WWE)
WWE superstar Rick Boogs made his return to Raw on Monday night and he looked absolutely incredible.
The 35-year-old wrestler hasn’t been seen on TV since suffering a brutal injury during his and Shinsuke Nakamura’s SmackDown Tag Team Title match at WrestleMania 38 on April 2, 2022.
He made a surprise comeback on last night’s show as Adam Pearce introduced him and set up a match against The Miz.
The A-Lister wasn’t dressed to compete, let alone against the utterly ripped fan favourite.
Boogs looked the part and delivered after receiving a warm welcome from the live crowd, making quick work of his opponent as he won with a gorilla press into a body slam.
It was a dominating victory that did everything it needed to do, and fans online were delighted to see him back, while everyone was left talking about his physique.

‘I don’t remember Rick Boogs looking this jacked,’ wrote one viewer as another added: ‘Rick Boogs looks huge. Dude has been hitting that iron.’
A third admirer tweeted: ‘Looks like Boogs spent most of his time working his arms while his leg was being rehabbed. Dude is jacked.’
‘Rick Boogs got more jacked and I didn’t think that was possible,’ added a fourth fan, while a fifth person echoed their sentiment and wrote: ‘Damn….. I think Rick Boogs is even more jacked than he was before the injury…. (sic)’
Boogs was still playing air guitar and drums during the brief match, but it remains to be seen how much of his rock god character is kept now that he has been split from Shinsuke Nakamura and will no longer be playing him to the ring.
However, there are hints of a feud with acoustic troubadour Elias, which could be a fun way to ease the heavyweight into singles action.
WWE Raw airs Monday nights at 1am on BT Sport 1.
