Matches That Time Forgot #9

I have to apologize for the poor quality of this video, but I didn't upload it. There are only so many websites that I can pull content from. I could have chosen a different match, but this one was too good to pass up. Today, I proffer a grueling scuffle between The Boogeyman and a green upstart by the name of Mike Mizanin. This match is a testament to how much The Miz has improved over the years, both on the mic and in the ring. Bless his heart; he tries to make this a wrestling match.

I thought that The Boogeyman was a terrific gimmick. Sure, the gross-out tactics were unnecessary and may have kept him from getting over as a babyface (the crowd is dead for his entrance), but the creative team never gave him any real opportunities. I imagine that the writing sessions went something like this - "Ratings, ratings, ratings...wait a second! We can have him bite a wart off of Jillian Hall's face!" It pains me knowing that there are people who gather paychecks for scraping shit like this together.

FACTOID: The Boogeyman was played by Marty Wright, brother of Charles Wright. Who is Charles Wright? None other than Kama/Papa Shango/The Godfather!
