Son of Mexican Wrestler Dies

Pedro Aguayo Ramirez, known as Hijo del Perro Aguayo, fell unconscious on the ropes, apparently after receiving a flying kick from fellow wrestler Oscar Gutierrez, known as former WWE star Rey Mysterio Jr., according to video of the match in a municipal auditorium in Tijuana. The match continued for 2 minutes before the referee and other participants realized something was seriously wrong and tended to him. He was taken to a hospital a block away and died about 1:30 a.m.

The cause of death, based on autopsy, was trauma to the neck and a cervical fracture. It has opened an investigation into possible manslaughter. The company that reportedly organized the event, The Crash, couldn’t be reached for comment. The Tijuana Boxing and Wrestling Commission called the death an unfortunate accident like those that occur in other high-risk sports.

The younger Aguayo was popular and led a group called “Los Perros de Mal,” or the bad dogs. He won numerous titles, including national pairs with his father, a national heavyweight championship and the Consejo Mundial Lucha Libre world trios championship.

“It makes me very sad because he was a professional colleague and I have great affection for his father,” wrestler Hijo del Santo said in a telephone interview. “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.”
