“Fake” Razor Ramon Recalls A Cold Interaction With Vince McMahon, Shawn Michaels Offering Him Advice

Rick Titan joined Inside The Ropes on Thursday. Here are some highlights from the interview.

Shawn Michaels offering advice to him on his first night as an impostor Razor Ramon: “Actually, Shawn Michaels, a lot of guys really didn’t like him, Bret didn’t like him, unless that was all a work because Bret kept that sorta stuff to himself. Shawn walked up to me and goes “D’ya mind if I give you a little criticism, a little positive criticism?” I told him sure, you know this guy was one of my idols and now he wants to teach me something. “Well here’s how Scott used to do the Razor punch” and he showed me how to do it. I was starstruck man, that he was teaching me something and I always appreciated that. He was always really cool to me. Which was surprising given that he was good friends with Scott. But he probably thought there’s a kid trying to make it in the business and wanted to help me out. I was never going to be able to replace Scott as that character. It’s like trying to bring in another Hulk Hogan, you just can’t do it.”

On being let go by the WWF and his last interaction with Vince McMahon: “I didn’t find out. They just kind of sent us home after a tour in Memphis and I sorta saw the writing on the wall. I actually phoned Vince. I’d saved his home number. So I called him and I said “Hey it’s Rick Titan here from Calgary, Alberta, Canada and it looks like my contract’s up and I just wanted to see if you wanted to do anything else with the character?” All he said to me was, “Rick, please don’t call me at this number again.” That was it. I saw my dream was destroyed and he didn’t give a damn.”

Also in the interview, which is available at www.facebook.com/theinsidenetwork Rick recalls creating the Razor Ramon impersonation in ECW with Shane Douglas and Paul Heyman, dealing with WWF crowds that hated him, and more.

    vince loves to do that kind of thing, his Mr. McMahon ” character ” is the real thing, while his smiling, patronizing way is most definitely a ” work “…..what an asshole vince is, and I would’ve LOVED to have seen Bret Punch his wig loose…….

    I wouldn’t advise anyone to waste their valuable time and health going into professional wrestling. With few exception, most everyone is disposable and easily replaced.
