I'm sure you all heard about this because it was the big news story of the week, but Perro Aguayo Jr. died after an in-ring accident, involving Rey Mysterio Jr. and TJP. I guess the spot was for Rey to set both Aguayo and TJP up for a double 619, but when Aguayo fell into place he landed incorrectly and injured his neck in such a way that he passed out. He was rushed to the hospital, but never woke up.

All around a horrible situation.

Some news sites have used headlines such as "Rey Mysterio kills wrestler" to garner headlines, which is dishonest, and has lead to Mysterio receiving death threats.

It's a real shame as Aguayo Jr. was a great talent. The Rey stuff pisses me off. It was a freak accident and it really cheapens what happened at the expense of being shocking.

Absolutely. I don't want to watch the video, but it's been described as being as simple as Rey setting Aguayo up for the 619, a spot that he's delivered safely and successfully thousands of times. As sad as I feel for the friends and family of Aguayo, I'm really feeling for Rey too, this must be an agonizing time for him.

Reportedly, both Rey and Konnan served as pallbearers at Aguayo's funeral, at the request of the family.

Rey might get some procedural investigations for manslaughter, but it will probably wash away, as this was clearly an accident. Lot of sensationalism in the media regarding the cause of death.
