Principe Aereo has passed following heart attack

It is with a heavy heart that we bring the news that luchador Principe Aereo, real name Luis Angel Salazar has passed away. He was 26 years old while wrestling at Mexa Wrestling in Mexico City.


According to Lucha Blog and PW Insider, Principe Aereo passed away after suffering an apparent heart attack in the square circle. He collapsed after he took two chops to the chest and when he was waiting for his opponent to rebound off the ropes, he fell down.

Late in his match, Principe Aereo took two normal (maybe even light) open hand chops to the chest and then suddenly collapses. If you’re familiar with basketball player Hank Gathers, it’s the same sort of sudden faint. No fault of his opponent.

The report stated that he was immediately put on a stretcher and received medical attention. Unfortunately, he passed away by then.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Salazar’s family and friends during this sad time.
