Dreadful news from the world of wrestling emerged on Friday night in Mexico as Perro Aguayo Jr. passed away from an injury suffered in a bout against well known former WWE superstar Rey Mysterio.
According to reports, Aguayo fell unconscious as he was about to receive Mysterio’s finishing maneuver which involves an elaborate acrobatic routine which commences on the ropes.
It has not been confirmed what the actual cause of death was or indeed what caused the luchador to fall limp, however some reports suggest that damage to his trachea resulting from whiplash may have been responsible.
The wrestler was treated by medical personnel on site before being rushed to a nearby hospital where he was tragically pronounced dead.
A very sad day for the world of wrestling and our thoughts are with the family and loved ones of the supremely talented luchador.
Footage of the incident is available online. However, for obvious reasons we have chosen not to share it.
