The WCW posted a tribute to the star, confirming he had died aged just 51.

Silver King hit the canvas. 

Barron was taking part at an event at the Roundhouse in England called “The Greatest Show of Lucha Libre” when he went into cardiac arrest during his match against Juventud Guerrera.

Fans at first thought it was part of the act before Silver King, real name Cesar Cuauhtemoc Gonzalez Barron, was surrounded by other wrestlers.

Silver King is most known for his  wrestling stint in the WCW, and he also played the villain role of Ramses in the movie “Nacho Libre.”
