    So was it the heart attacks that actually killed him, or the CPR which broke a rib and punctured his lung?

    Regardless of the bad reporting and making it sound like he literally died ***in*** the ring (according to many reports), I’m sure pro wrestling will be blamed for it. Very sad either way.

    Why did they do CPR when he was having a heart attack?
