Aguayo Jr. Died Almost Immediately, Investigation Underway

The Associated Press is reporting that an autopsy performed on the body of El Hijo del Perro Aguayo — whose real name was Pedro Aguayo Ramírez — revealed he died almost immediately due to injuries he suffered in the ring last Friday night.

Aguayo Jr. had three fractured vertebrae and was dead by the time he reached the hospital. He was pronounced dead around 1 AM Saturday morning.

Just to be clear, the show was promoted by CRASH and while Aguayo was a AAA talent, they were not running the show.

As previously reported here on, prosecutors have opened an investigation.

Rey Mysterio, Extreme Tiger and Manik are among four wrestlers that will be questioned about the incident. In addition, prosecutors are expected to question Wrestling and Boxing Commission officials who handled Aguayo's body and the medical workers who attended to him.
