Mexico’s Pedro Aguayo Ramirez, a popular member of the country’s ‘Lucha Libre’ wrestling world, died on Saturday March 21, 2015 after a blow during a professional wrestling match in Tijuana, Baja California.
“El Hijo del Perro” (as he was known), was fighting Rey Mysterio Jr. in a team matchup when he was apparently hit in the neck and went limp against the ropes, the Associated Press reports.
Aguayo hit the ring ropes after taking a dropkick from Rey Mysterio Jr., as seen in video of the full match, and was injured either then or when his tag team partner “Manik” hit them as well. (Either way, it seems to have been simply a freak accident.)
Referees and other wrestlers continued fighting for several minutes before realizing Aguayo wasn’t moving.
The wrestlers didn’t seem to realize the extent of the injury at first — but soon realized something was wrong. Once everyone noticed how serious it was — Aguayo was put on a stretcher and rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced dead 2 hours later.
The local prosecutor’s office officially stated that he was taken to a Tijuana hospital and pronounced dead at 1:30 a.m.
Aguayo was only 35-years-old, he began wrestling as a teen, following his father footsteps, a well-known wrestling personality.
