On the July 11, 2005 episode of ''[[WWE Raw]]'', [[Horror film|horror movie]] style [[Vignette (wrestling)|vignettes]] began airing to promote the debut of Wright in his "Boogeyman" personality. After a few weeks the vignettes were moved from ''Raw'' to ''[[WWE SmackDown|SmackDown!]]'', but his planned debut was delayed when he [[Extension (kinesiology)|hyperextended]] both [[knee]]s and needed time to recover. The Boogeyman made his first appearance on October 13, 2005 ''SmackDown!''. He was brought in by [[UPN]] Network Executive [[Brian Mailhot|Palmer Cannon]], who claimed he was going to be a part of another (unspecified) UPN show that never came to be due to an on-set "accident" involving The Boogeyman; it was implied he had "done something" to another member of the cast, but never elaborated on. Cannon said he brought him to the ''SmackDown!'' brand as part of a "new talent initiative". The Boogeyman then proceeded to recite a version of the child's chant ''One, two, Freddy's coming for you '' from the movie ''[[A Nightmare on Elm Street]]'' before smashing an oversized [[Clock|alarm clock]] on his own head. The Boogeyman continued to "terrorize" other Superstars for the next couple of months. For the next few weeks The Boogeyman (who was then a tweener) appeared in unexpected places backstage (closets, vans, et cetera), reciting different nursery rhymes and holding up clocks before screaming his [[catchphrase]] "''I'm The Boogeyman and I'm comin' to get'cha!''" and [[Evil laughter|laughing maniacally]]. This would leave the performer(s) that had discovered him both confused and creeped out, usually ending with them backing out of the room slowly while the commentators remarked on how strange the whole situation was.
