Bugenhagen debuted on October 19, 2017 in a match lost to Lars Sullivan. He lost again to Sullivan on October 21 in a rematch. Returning on November 2, Bugenhagen teamed with Heavy Machinery (Otis Dozovic & Tucker Knight) in defeating Chad Lail & The Forgotten Sons (Steve Cutler & Wesley Blake). They defeated Lail & The Forgotten Sons the following day in a rematch. On November 10, Bugenhagen lost to Adrian Jaoude in his third singles match. This marked the final time he would wrestle under his real name.

After a year-long hiatus, Bugenhagen returned under the new ring name Ric Boog (an abbreviated version of his actual name), he wrestled during the November 30, 2018 house show against Kassius Ohno. The following month, Boog returned for the December 6 house show, during which he teamed with Riddick Moss in a tag match lost to Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford).

Two nights later during the January 12 house show, Boog lost a singles match against Dominik Dijakovic. Bugenhagen made his NXT television debut, under his real name, on the February 6, 2019 episode where he lost a singles match against Drew Gulak. It was on this date, Bugenhagen debuted his new gimmick, wearing flamboyantly new ring attire, growing his hair long and wearing a handlebar-styled mustache. Drawing from his guitar-playing background, Bugenhagen presented a rock-and-roll character in which he often plays an air-guitar or other invisible instruments during his entrances and matches.
