Wrestler Silver King dies after suffering heart attack in ring
Professional wrestler Cesar Barron, who goes by the stage name Silver King, died during a match over the weekend when he suffered a heart attack.
According to Mattha Busby of The Guaradian, Barron was taking part at an event at the Roundhouse in England called “The Greatest Show of Lucha Libre” when he went into cardiac arrest during his match against Juventud Guerrera.
A video that was posted online showed Silver King face-down on the mat, and he looked to be struggling before Guerrera kicked him and pinned him for a three count. It appeared that no one understood Barron was having a serious health problem, as he was left motionless on the mat for a long time while the referee raised Guerrera’s arm following the victory.
Silver King is best known for his stint wrestling in the WCW, and he also played the villain role of Ramses in the movie “Nacho Libre.” He was 51.
