The Boogeyman announced on his Twitter that he too has signed a WWE Legends contract, joining Tatanka and “Superstar” Billy Graham who also signed a deal this week.
“Guess who, just signed a WWE SUPERSTAR Legends Contract…Never Give Up..Thank U Vince..Cmin2getcha,” he wrote.
The man behind the gimmick, Marty Wright, was originally part of the fourth season of Tough Enough and was among the eight finalists chosen. However he lied about his age and was 40 when the competition was about to start, five years more than the limit of the competition. He was cut from the show but was invited to go to OVW and train there.
He made his WWE debut in October 2005 and stayed there till March 2009, wrestling for the RAW, Smackdown, and ECW brands in the process. Since leaving WWE he made appearances on television including being an entrant in the 2015 Royal Rumble.
