UPDATE (x2) According to the Wrestler Observer Newsletter, the initial cause of death for Aguayo Jr. is that of cervical spine trauma that was caused when he hit the ropes, snapping his neck in the process.

That would completely negate the report of the Mexican legend passing away due to an errant '619' or dropkick. If the report is true, the circumstances of his death would be eerily similar to that of Japanese legend Mitsuharu Misawa.

Misawa passed away in 2009 after suffering severe spinal trauma during a match in Japan.

ORIGINAL: The Mark Out's original report indicated that now deceased lucha libre legend Perro Aguayo Jr. passed away after a '619' finishing move from Rey Misterio hit his trachea and killed him.

However, that doesn't appear to be the case a video of the full match has surfaced and those initial reports appear false. The 35-year-old Aguayo Jr. appears to be knocked unconscious after a dropkick from Misterio.

Here is the full match:

At around the 6:20 mark, Mysterio dropkicks Aguayo Jr. into the second rope, setting him up for his trademark 619 move. But as he receives the dropkick, he appears to be completely knocked out, resting on the second rope without any sense of awareness.

It's possible the dropkick is what hurt the trachea of the AAA legend, leading to his untimely death. That contradicts the earlier report from the PWTorch which stated the Aguayo Jr perished from the 619 move itself.

Any further updates will be passed along once they become available.
