As you unfortunately know, poor Rick Boogs got badly injured in his first Wrestlemania when he tried to lift the Usos twins at the same time and failed. On April 8, the PWInsider was able to confirm that Rick Boogs had undergone a surgical operation, which would have ended successfully, in particular, he was operated on his quadriceps.
"WWE Star Rick Boogs underwent successful surgery to repair his torn quadriceps this week in Birmingham, Alabama, PWInsider confirms this."
Latest update on Rick Boogs
Rick Boogs and Shinsuke Nakamura helped kick off WWE's WrestleMania 38, facing off against The Usos for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships.
At the approximately six-minute mark, Boogs suffered a legitimate injury, forcing WWE to call an audible during the match and end it prematurely. Through a video on his YouTube channel, the wrestler wanted to update the WWE Universe on its rehabilitation path after the injury and the subsequent operation: "It's been a while, guys, I just wanted to update you.
new to say or exciting things I can do in terms of power, strength, and test limits ... I'm just doing machines in the gym, that's all I can do right now. I can't use the lower end, you know what I mean? I have to let that puppy heal, but I wanted to give you a little information ...
This is PT: physiotherapy. As of now, this week's goal for PT was 85 degrees of knee flexion. Sticky Ricky performed 112 degrees of knee flexion. We're talking about next week's goal of 90, next week of 100, maybe next week of 105.
You know, I'm about a month ahead, 112 is a nice personal best." Obviously, it is not known exactly when he will return to the ring, but let's say that the news that came out of his mouth in that video is more than positive and make us think that he will not be out for much longer.
The important thing, however, is that he recovers 100% to continue his career, so take it easy, Boogs, don't worry, we are waiting for you here! While there's been no confirmation on whether Boogs and Nakamura were set to win the SmackDown Tag Team Titles, the duo had a decent chance to do so.
WWE will have a big hole to fill in Boogs' absence, as he and Nakamura have become key features of SmackDown in the last year.
