El Hijo Del Perro Aguayo's death being investigated as possible manslaughter
The Associated Press has picked up Pedro Aguayo Ramírez's passing. Aguayo died early this morning after an accident during a match in Tijuana, Mexico last night where he teamed with Manik to face Extreme Tiger and Mysterio for the CRASH Lucha Libre independent promotion.
As noted, Aguayo took a spinning head scissors from Mysterio during the match that sent him outside of the ring. Aguayo immediately got back in the ring and took a dropkick from Mysterio to setup the 619. The initial cause of death appears to be a snapped vertebrae from how his head landed on the ropes.
According to the AP, authorities have opened an investigation into possible manslaughter. They also spoke to Aguayo's former tag team partner, Hijo del Santo, about his tragic passing.
"It makes me very sad because he was a professional colleague and I have great affection for his father," del Santo said. "I think the fans in Japan, the U.S. and Mexico of course, where he was very popular, must be in mourning, especially because of his youth. He had much ahead of him."
As noted earlier, Rey Mysterio posted the tweets below on Aguayo's passing, which translates to, "Just a friendship of brothers that formed began years ago and we should not question the ways of God. But on this occasion I wonder why and I do not understand. I miss you and I will take you with me the rest of my life. Rest in peace Hijo Del Perro."
