Lucha Legend Perro Aguayo Passes Away

Lucha legend Perro Aguayo has passed away at the age of 73-years-old.

AAA confirmed the unfortunate news not long after and Lucha Libre CMLL commented on the wrestling legend’s death, calling him “one of the greatest figures of this sport.”

Aguayo is one of the biggest non-masked draws in the history of Mexican wrestling. Perro also helped establish AAA in the ’90s. His feud with Dos Caras and Konnan was a major box office draw.

American wrestling fans might be more familiar with Aguayo for the appearance he made in the 1997 Royal Rumble. He appeared in the match alongside other famous luchadors.

Below are some Tweets from people around the industry paying tribute to the late luchador

 

S.A.M.’s Spiel: As someone that grew up watching lucha libre, this really saddens me to see this news. Aguayo was one of my favorite luchadors to see wrestle during the 90s and he was incredible in the ring. If you get the chance, I would encourage you to seek out his work because he truly was one of the best. We all wish his family and friends our condolences during this time.
