• Breaking News: Old School WCW Veteran Died In The Ring Earlier Today
We are saddened to learn that earlier today we lost Old School WCW Veteran Silver King (Real name: César Cuauhtémoc González Barrón) at the age of 51, after he suffered a health issue during his match against fellow Old School WCW Veteran Juventud Guerrera earlier today.
If you were watching Ted Turner’s WCW TV during the famous Monday Night Wars, you will most likely remember Silver King as one of the luchadores that were part of the Cruiserweight Division.
He lasted from 1997 till 2000, before he returned to his home country Mexico.
We extend our condolences to his family, friends and fans.
† REST IN PEACE SILVER KING!
