Silver King tragically passed away after collapsing during a match. He was only 51-years-old.
The professional wrestling world is reacting in droves as many remember him and were privileged enough to work with Silver King in the ring.
Although a cause of death is not known at this time, PW Insider reports that Silver King is believed to have suffered a heart attack.
F4WOnline also reports “according to those in the arena, the rest of the show was cancelled.” Therefore Silver King vs Juventud Guerrera was not the main event of the London Lucha Libre World event.
After Silver King would not get up after a two count, Guerrera and the referee talked for a moment and then Guerrera kicked Silver King in the collarbone and pinned him to end the match. At that time wrestlers and emergency staff hit the ring to assist Silver King.
Out thoughts are with anyone dealing with this tragically sad situation whether they were Silver King’s family, friends, or fans.
