UPDATE: WWE confirmed the news by posting the following on WWE.com:
As he revealed on Friday via Twitter, The Boogeyman, one of the scariest Superstars to ever set foot in a WWE ring, has signed a WWE Legends contract.
Both through his powerful arsenal and his macabre tactics that included an abnormal affinity for worms, The Boogeyman made quite an impact during his WWE tenure. The creepy competitor terrified opponents in WWE and ECW, which included a heated rivalry with WWE Hall of Famer Booker T that led to a victorious effort for the nightmare-fueled Superstar at WrestleMania 22.
Please join WWE in congratulating The Boogeyman.
