We've profiled NXT rising star Eric "Rik Bugez" Bugenhagen before, as he's the hard rock wrestler WWE needs right now. Now Bugez is back making headlines over the holiday break for pretty much just being an all-around beast.
Playing "The Trooper" by Iron Maiden on guitar is no easy task all by itself. Playing "The Trooper" by Iron Maiden on guitar while squatting what looks like 345 pounds is just insane. Yet here's self-proclaimed Bugez doing exactly that, and doing that really well.
I'm also slightly jealous of his choice in pants.
