Mexico’s Pedro Aguayo Ramirez, a popular member of the country’s ‘Lucha Libre’ wrestling world, died Saturday after a blow during a bout in Tijuana. He was 35.
Ramirez was fighting Oscar Gutierrez in a team matchup when he was apparently hit in the neck and went limp against the ropes, the Associated Press reports. Referees and other wrestlers continued fighting for several minutes before realizing Ramirez wasn’t moving.
The local prosecutor’s office said he was taken to a hospital nearby and pronounced dead at 1:30 a.m. Ramirez began wrestling as a teen, following his after father, a well-known wrestling personality.
