The SmackDown newbie reveals how nervous he was before his debut in SmackDown. He made an appearance on WWE After The Bell and this is what he had to say regarding the situation:

“Let’s just say I was shocked, I was stunned because I had, I would say about maybe 12 hours of heads up. I got a text like the night before to be at SmackDown and this is what I was gonna do. So yeah, obviously I play his theme on guitar. Now let’s keep in mind, sure I dilly-dally a little bit with the guitar, [but] I hadn’t played guitar, other than maybe a little bit here and there, like I hadn’t practiced at all.”

Boogs also revealed how he only had roughly 12 hours to prepare and was very nervous because he wasn’t a regular guitarist.

Boogs revealed that even though he accepted the offer to perform he was still anxious about it.

“I’m not even kidding. From time to time, maybe I’ll do something simple and easy, whatever, maybe to put it on Instagram or whatever, but it’s not like I practiced. So them being like, ‘Learn this’, and of course I’m like, ‘Yes, I’ll do it,’ but the anticipation and the nerves of that, man. Not just playing guitar, because I was in a band in high school, not a very serious band, I think the biggest full crowd we played in front of was, I don’t know, 25 people. So now it’s like, can you learn this thing in a matter of hours and everyone’s gonna judge you, it’s gonna be in front of millions of people, and it’s not really what I do.”
