Professional wrestler and actor Silver King,has died at the age of 51 after suffering a heart attack while playing his tried-and-true role of villain in London at the Roundhouse.
According to reports, a kick may have activated a coronary that occasioned the heart attack, with authorities confirming the wrestler breathed his last at the venue on Saturday, May 11.
In the video, you see him get knocked down 3 times, kind of writhing on the ground look somewhat dazed. It doesn’t really look odd — just doing what wrestlers do when they choreograph matches.
But, then he takes a kick to the chest, and that drops him to the ground. His face is planted into the mat and he never gets up.
