We are sad to report that former CMLL/AAA/WCW star Silver King passed away today at the age of 51 after collapsing during a match with Juventud Guerrera in London, England.
Several media outlets in Mexico have confirmed the news of his passing. Record.com.mx is reporting that he suffered a stroke and then a heart attack a short time later.
The footage (we will not post it here) shows King collapsing. Guerrera did not know what was happening and tried to roll him over. He ultimately pinned him to end the match and paramedics rushed into the ring to try to revive him.
We’ll pass along updates when we get them.
I can confirm now. I hate this.
