Mexican luchadore Silver King, perhaps best known for his stint with World Championship Wrestling from 1997-2000, and for playing the villain in Nacho Libre, has died aged 51, after suffering heart complications during a match.

The story I read makes it sound horrible for all involved.
It's my understanding he collapsed while going for a pin (on Juventud Guerrera) who then had to try his best to kick out of a pin by a 'sandbagging' guy. Juvi got up, tried to continue and only after a few seconds did people realize something was wrong....Tragic.

I mostly know Silver King as the guy from WCW and I was told by Tenay to NOT be fooled by his stocky physique.
From what I remember he was a good solid wrestler. From what I see now he was a great talent. Never realised Dr.Wagner was his father and Wagner Jr his brother.

Rest in Peace, Silver King.

I've watched the clip, and it appears that Silver King has his attack moments AFTER Juvi kicks out. The kick-out looks totally normal, SK is above him, then he freezes up and slowly his head starts to lower.

I don't know if those details are important. Tragic indeed in any event.

I watched too. Sad clip. Why the ref wasnt more proactive is a mystery to me. The guy wasn't moving at all.

The video is really disturbing to watch as he lays there motionless and nobody does anything and the only concern is finishing the match.

Actually, I wasn't pulling the number out of my ass. Considering the build-up to Mania appeared to be leading to a rating of approximately 4.7-4.8 (approximately 4.418 million viewers) entering Mania, a 2.0 buyrate (1.6 million purchases)
