Wrestler Silver King dies after collapsing in the ring

Wrestler Silver King dies after collapsing in the ring

He was wrestling a match with Juventud Guerrera at a lucha libre event in East London at Camden Roundhouse when he collapsed in the ring.

Gonzalez had reprised his role as the "evil Ramses" from Nacho Libre during the bout.

A well-known Mexican wrestler who co-starred in the film comedy "Nacho Libre" died in London after he collapsed during a match that a witness described as so elaborately staged it wasn't immediately clear something seriously was wrong. He grew up in a wrestling family with his father, Dr Wagner who was a popular lucha libre fighter, and brother, Dr. Wagner Jr who also competed professionally.

American fans may best remember Silver King from his time with WCW in the late 1990s, as part of the cruiserweight division.

Fellow Mexican wrestler, El Hijo de Santo, tweeted his condolences to Barron, saying that he "left as he wanted: fighting!".

Below is a statement from Lucha Libre World concerning the tragic loss of Silver King last night at the Roundhouse. He & Tejano were an wonderful team. Like so numerous great Luchadores that helped Americans appreciate Lucha Libre and make Nitro the success it was, he will be missed.

The LAS said two ambulances, an advanced paramedic and an incident response officer were dispatched, "with the first of our medics arriving in five minutes". They declared that Barrón died at the scene. In a report from Record.com, the 51-year old was participating in a match against Juventud Guerrera when he suffered the health issue.

All of us at Cultaholic wish Silver King's family and friends our deepest sympathies.
