As noted before, El Hijo Del Perro Aguayo passed away during a tag team match featuring Rey Mysterio, Xtreme Tiger & his tag team partner Manik. Hijo Del Perro Aguayo got injured when Rey Mysterio Jr. delivered a vicious dropkick.
Due to this incident, Rey Mysterio has reportedly received death threats in Mexico. Also, Rey Mysterio was the most searched term on the internet after this incident.
Although this wasn’t Rey Mysterio’s fault, as accidents are something that pro-wrestlers always risk, but the fact that AAA wasn’t prepared for something like this is just horrible.
Also, the post match conduct was extremely poor and it might have played a part in his death as well.
The cause of his death was revealed to be a stroke that was caused by cervical spine damage. The Associated Press is reporting the death is being investigated as a possible manslaughter.
