51-year-old Mr Cesar Barron, known as the Silver King, died last night during a wrestling show in London. The man was a star in his native Mexico and appeared alongside Jack Black in the 2005 film Nacho Libre.
He was performing at the Roundhouse in Camden when he suddenly fell to the canvas. Paramedics declared that he had a heart attack.
A fellow Mexican wrestler paid tribute to his “great rival”, saying: “He went as he wanted: fighting!”
El Hijo del Santo, aka Jorge Rodriguez, tweeted his “deep regret” at the death of his “partner in so many battles”.
