FORMER WWE wrestler Rick Bognar, who owns his own little piece of wrestling history died at the age of 49 with his family describing it as sudden and unexpected.

Chris Jericho led the tributes.

A family spokesperson said:
“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.”
Rick became an investment specialist after he was done with wrestling and he’ll always have his own piece of wrestling history.
May he rest in peace.
