The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has been plunged into mourning following the death of legendary star ‘Fake’ Razor Ramon. Rick Bognar, who infamously portrayed the “fake” Razor Ramon character, is said to have died “suddenly” and “unexpectedly.”

“It is with great sadness that I share some news with Rick’s Facebook friends. On September 20th Rick passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at the young age of 49,” Ken, Bognar’s brother posted on Facebook.
Razor Ramon is understood to have died mid-September. The wrestler’s death was described as “sudden” and “unexpected.”
“It is tough to comprehend and will likely never sink in fully. Rick left behind a great legacy and I know he will be remembered and missed by all of us,” he further submitted. Despite not being common among most WWE fans, Bognar will famously be remembered from the 1990s having played a lead role during the Attitude Era.
The American has also previously worked for numerous independent promotions, including ECW briefly and New Japan Pro Wrestling. Meanwhile, following his death, several former and current WWE stars have paid tribute to him, with Chris Jericho mourning Bognar as “a constant opponent and friend.”
