Aguayo was one of lucha libre’s biggest draws at his peak.
Perro Aguayo, one of the biggest draws in lucha libre history, has passed away at 73 years old.
The Perros del Mal stable’s Facebook page announced the news last night. Mexico’s leading promotions, AAA and CMLL, have since confirmed it. The cause of death is currently unknown.
Debuting in 1968, Aguayo eventually became known for the influential rudo brawling style that made him one of his era’s most effective villains. After starring for the defunct UWA promotion throughout the 70s and 80s, he helped form AAA in 1992, continuing as a top star, and participating in one of his best drawing feuds with Konnan and Cien Caras.
Aguayo’s retirement tour eventually saw him jump ship to CMLL. He took the hair of Caras and Mascara Ano in 2000 and lost what was supposed to be his last match to Universo 2000 the following year, but ended up returning in 2005 and wrestled his last match in August 2007.
His son, Perro Aguayo Jr., passed away in the ring while wrestling Rey Mysterio in 2015. Aguayo Sr. removed himself from the public eye thereafter, living a quiet life for his last few years.
We here at wrestlingnewsplus.com would like to express our deepest sympathies to Perro Aguayo’s friends and family during this difficult period.
