Mexican Wrestler Dies Mexican professional wrestler Pedro Aguayo Ramirez, died in the early hours of Saturday morning on 21 March 2015. He passed away in hospital, after a wrestling match in Tijuana. Where on the ropes and limp, a strike to his neck may have ultimately been fatal. Wrestling under the name of Hijo del Perro Aguayo, the wrestling match continued until the referee and other wrestlers realised Aguayo’s situation was dire and went to help him. Many onlookers and fans initially thought it was all part of the show. Aguayo was wrestling against Rey Mysterio Jr., whose real name is Oscar Gutierrez. Baja California’s state prosecutor’s office is investigating whether possible manslaughter charges may apply.
