The man began his career as Silver King in the Universal Wrestling Association and lost his mask early to El Hijo del Santo.
He formed a tag team with El Texano called “The Cowboys” (Los Vaqueros), and the tandem saw success with a UWA and WWA World Tag Team title reigns and an appearance on WCW‘s Clash of the Champions XIX in 1992 being defeated by The Fabulous Freebirds.
In 1993, Texano and Silver King jumped to Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre where they continued their success by winning the vacant CMLL tag titles.
In 1996, he and his brother Dr. Wagner, Jr. defeated Dos Caras and Último Dragón to win the vacant CMLL World Tag-Team titles but in 1997, Silver King joined WCW full time and gave up his half of the title.
Later, Silver King participated as the super wrestler “Ramsés”, in the film production “Nacho Libre” starring American actor Jack Black.
But on Saturday, May 11, Silver King died in the ring, during the main event of the Wrestling World London 2019, in the British capital.
After more than 20 minutes of intense combat against Juventud Guerrera, Silver King simply vanished in the ring. Subsequently, seven minutes passed before the brother of Dr. Wagner Jr. received attention from British paramedics.
According to the first reports from promoters, media and fellow wrestlers, the Mexican gladiator died of a heart attack at age 51.
Rest in Peace Silver King…
