Was Rick Bogner A Time Lord? (’96 WWF/nWo question)

From the Observer May 27, 1996


"On the undercard, Big Titan came out in a total Razor Ramon get-up as Slice & Dice
Ramirez with the toothpick and the slicked hair and the Cuban accent."

Was this actually in the works before Hall even debuted on Nitro or some freaky coincidence I’ve never heard about until now?

​Not really a coincidence, but Big Titan was doing the Ramon impression on the indy scene for months as a gag, which is why Vince signed him​ later in the year for the Ramon II role. The fact that there was someone out there doing the Slice & Dice bit probably gave Vince the brilliant idea to rip off his own creations, in fact.
