A  popular Mexican wrestling star named El Hijo Del Perro Aguayo, 35, was killed during a live show in Tijuana last night March 20th when a fighting stunt went terribly wrong in the center of the ring, TMZ reports. Aguayo was taking on former WWE star Rey Mysterio Jr. when he was performing a stunt and apparently snapped his neck or spine.

The wrestlers didn't seem to realize the extent of the injury at first – but soon realized something was wrong. Once everyone realized how serious it was – Aguayo (above) was put on a stretcher and rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
