The cause of Mexican wrestler death Hijo Del Perro Aguayo, who passed away on Saturday morning has been revealed as it was a stroke caused by cervical spinal damage. The medical report confirmed that he suffered from whiplash.
As for the doctor in charge not being present at ringside during the accident, it should be noted that he was busy treating two other wrestlers backstage. The doctor defended the delay in responding to Aguayo, saying it was not malpractice.
