perro aguayo jr aaa Perro Aguayo Jr. dies after wrestling match with Rey Mysterio and TNA's Manik

Though former WWE star Rey Mysterio’s return to wrestling in Tijuana was supposed to be a celebratory affair, it took a tragic turn when El Hijo del Perro — also known as Perro Aguayo Jr. — passed away after his match with Mysterio for wrestling company AAA, according to local reports. He was 35 years old.
The match featured Aguayo teaming with TNA star Manik against the duo of Mysterio and Xtreme Tiger. When Aguayo leaned against the ring ropes as Mysterio set up the 619 — a move he regularly performed in both WCW and WWE — the wrestler suddenly appeared unconscious. There is video of the match, but be warned that it is disturbing to watch.
Once they realized something was wrong, the other three men in the match continued the bout while a person checked on Aguayo ringside. When the bout ended, medical personnel transferred Aguayo to the hospital, where local media reports he was pronounced dead at 1:00 a.m. PT.
It’s not yet clear what the cause of Aguayo’s death was. AAA released a statement on Twitter which roughly translates to, “The grief overwhelms our hearts. Rest in peace, Hijo del Perro Aguayo.” Manik also spoke out, writing, “Godspeed Perro … Life goes so fast man. I can’t believe some of us  pack our bags and don’t make it home.”
