We are sad to report that lucha-libre star Principe Aerero, real name Luis Angel Salazar, passed away of a heart attack while performing at last night’s Mexa Wrestling event from the Arena San Juan Pantitlan in Mexico City. He was only 26.
Aerero took a series of chops across the chest when he suddenly fell to the mat. EMT’s were quick to act by strapping him to a back board and rushing him to a nearby medical facility, where Aerero would eventually pass. He’d been working in smaller circuits around Mexico, but did appear a few occasions for AAA.
From all of us here at Wrestling Headlines we’d like to wish our condolences to the friends and family of the departed. Rest in peace Aerero.
