American movie actor turned professional wrestler. He tried out for "WWE Tough Enough 4" in 2004 and made it to the finals of the auditions but was cut for lying about his age. Despite this, he received a developmental deal and was sent to Ohio Valley Wrestling. He was first called "Liar" Marty Wright before being repackaged as the Boogeyman. In Summer 2005, "WWE SmackDown!" started airing vignettes promoting the debut of the Boogeyman. On the October 14th episode, storyline UPN executive Palmer Cannon told "SmackDown!" General Manager Theodore Long about how "The Boogeyman" was going to be a new show on the network until "something happened on the set," but, that they had a "multi-year holding deal" with the intended star and that in Cannon's opinion "he'd be a great addition for 'SmackDown!," leading to the Boogeyman making his first appearance on WWE TV. He made his TV in-ring debut on the December 2nd episode, defeating Simon Dean (Mike Bucci) in 25 seconds. He went on a streak of defeating his opponents very quickly, usually through scaring them before he even entered the ring. He made his PPV debut at "WWE Royal Rumble 2006," defeating former WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Bradshaw Layfield (John Layfield) in 1:45. Lasted with WWE until March 2009 and went on to the independents. On March 14, 2015, he won his first title when he and Bobby Lashley won the AWF (Alabama Wrestling Federation) Tag Team Titles. Continues to compete in the independents.
