The world of Lucha Libre lost a legend as Silver King passed away on Saturday evening at a Lucha Libre World event in Camden.
PW Insider reports more details regarding Silver King’s unfortunate passing and we offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the legend.
Silver King faced off against Juventud Guerrera at the Roundhouse Theatre in North London. During the match, Guerrera was hit with a clothesline by King and he covered Guerrera for a two count. However, King did not get off the mat.
Both Guerrera and the referee took their time to check on Silver King but he simply did not get up. All of a sudden, many wrestlers made their way to the ring and they brought out the defibrillator, but to no avail. He was taken to a hospital where he later passed away.
