    Wrestler dies during match, but it was so staged, at first no one knew anything was wrong

    LONDON (AP) - A well-known Mexican wrestler who co-starred in the film comedy "Nacho Libre" died in London after he collapsed during a match that a witness described as so elaborately staged it wasn't immediately clear something seriously was wrong.

    Cesar Cuauhtemoc Gonzalez Barron, who wrestled with the ring name Silver King, was one of the featured wrestlers of "The Greatest Show of Lucha Libre" on Saturday night. The north London performance venue, the Roundhouse, tweeted just after 12:30 a.m. Sunday that the 51-year-old "sadly lost his life" during the event.

    Lucha Libre World, which promoted the Roundhouse event, said in a statement the lucha libre star "suffered what we believe was a cardiac arrest while performing in the show and sadly passed away."

    51 is too old to be juiced to the gills and pushing the heart rate, his arteries were probably like copper pipe.

    "Nacho Libre" is a criminally underrated movie.

    RIP, Ramses.
