The wrestling world lost Rick Bognar on Saturday, Sept. 28 at the age of 49.
Following his passing, various peers took to social media to share their memories and condolences.
Sorry to hear about the passing of my old friend @titan.rick today. Rick was a constant opponent and friend from the first month I moved to Calgary in 1990, all the way until we (and @stormwrestlingacademy) worked for #WAR in in Japan in 1995. He ended up in @WWE as the “fake” #RazorRamon and then become a motivational speaker. He was a funny guy who did great impressions and a literal giant in the ring! I last saw him before a @fozzyrock gig in Calgary a few years ago and it was great to reconnect and catch up. 49 is way too young to pass away, but I’ll always remember his big smile and drinking #chuhi with he and @dr.luther whilst singing Karaoke in Japan! God bless you Rick! #ricktitan

Sad to hear about the passing of Rick Bognar/Rick Titan. Great a d funny guy from the time I met him in ECW. Some remember him as Fake Razor Ramon. That gig came out of him doing it on an ECW house show. He popped the boys and the crowd. God speed Rick!— Brian Heffron aka The Blue Meanie (@BlueMeanieBWO) September 28, 2019
So sad!!! He worked at the Golds Gym when I did my first fitness competition. Always so happy and positive. -------- https://t.co/FlftlTVQ1i— Wera Loca (@TheTayaValkyrie) September 28, 2019

I’ve just heard that Rick Bognar (FMW’s Big Titan & WWE’s impostor Razor Ramon) has died.— Paul Lazenby (@MaulerMMA) September 28, 2019
Rick was the first one out of our crop of Calgary talent to make it in Japan & WWE, and he was always extremely cool and generous with me. If this news is true, he will be greatly missed. pic.twitter.com/Ngxqb8wSIy
