Perro Aguayo Jr. died last night during a match with Rey Mysterio Jr. in Tijuana. In Mysterio Jr.’s return to Tijuana, during a tag team match with Mysterio Jr. and Xtreme Tiger against Aguayo Jr. and Manik, Mysterio Jr. appears to set up Aguayo Jr. for a 619 but something happened. What that something was is unknown right now. Initial reports said that whiplash from Manik hitting the ropes first caused the injury but that no longer looks to be the case.

Arguayo Jr. may have simply hit the rope awkwardly but regardless it’s clear that he immediately goes limp. The match continued for a brief moment or two but it then became apparent something was very, very wrong.

He was pronounced dead in the hospital shortly thereafter.
