Eric Bugenhagen made his WWE debut on an episode of NXT Live in October 2017 as “Ric Boog.” He is a two-time WWE 247 Champion who made his main roster debut on SmackDown in May 2021. Bugenhagen is a YouTuber in addition to being a WWE wrestler. He has almost 240,000 followers and posts amusing and silly videos. However, he mostly shares videos of himself working out in his home gym and sometimes offers practical advice. In those films, he hypes himself up before lifting with incredible force.
Fans can’t help but worry about the WWE star’s better half, who chooses to keep away from his extremely public vocation, despite his popularity and fortune.
Bugenhagen’s Wife Made a Difference in His Life
Bugenhagen maintains his personal life discreet, thus, nothing is known about his wife; nonetheless, she is sometimes shown in his exercise films, assisting him with his lifting. In one of his uploads, he did, however, describe how he met his wife and their relationship. Bugenhagen posted a video titled ‘Relationship Breakup?’ on February 25. He began the video by reading a question from Micheal, a 21-year-old fan who sought some life advice from the wrestler.

Micheal asked him whether he should terminate his new relationship since he wasn’t sure if it was what he was searching for. Micheal apparently decided Bugenhagen was the appropriate person to ask the question to because of how happy Bugenhagen seemed to be with his wife. So Bugenhagen reacted with a tale from when he was 20 years old.
He said that he drank a lot, got in a lot of trouble, and that wrestling was the last thing on his mind. He attempted to improve but failed, and he was eventually evicted from his residence. To cut a long story short, he met his wife while looking for a new apartment. That’s when Bugenhagen’s life took a turn for the worst. He ended up falling in love with her and admitting that she helped him get his life back on track. He then offered his suggestions.
Bugenhagen and His Wife Faced Difficulties
In the same video, the powerlifter discussed the difficulties he and his wife faced. Bugenhagen has gone through a lot with his wife. He said they had been impoverished for many years and depended on his parents for food while living with his wife’s mother. He went on to say that if he hadn’t had his wife at his side while he was suffering, he would have been even more self-destructive and poisonous. But now he’s delighted he stayed by his wife’s side all these years.
