Mexican wrestling star El Hijo Perro Aguayo dies after match against Rey Mysterio

What was supposed to be a celebration of the return of Mexican wrestling legend and former WWE superstar Rey Mysterio has turned into a week of tragedy for Asesoria y Administracion (AAA) as star El Hijo del Perro Aguayo died early Saturday morning after suffering an injury during a match with Mysterio.

Multiple media outlets in Mexico and PWTorch here in the United States have reported El Hijo del Perro Aguayo's death.

El Hijo del Perro Aguayo, 35, took part in a tag team match against Mysterio, who had returned to Mexico after parting ways with the WWE in February.

During the course of the match El Hijo del Perro Aguayo took the set up to Mysterio's 619 finishing move, where he went limp after landing on the ropes.

According to PWTorch, he received medical attention by paramedics and was taken to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead. You can watch footage of the entire match here.

This is the second tragic event to hit AAA in the last week as a bus transporting a group of wrestlers crashed in Mexico, injuring several on board and killing office staff member Irma Osorno.
