LONDON, ENG. (THECOUNT) — Former WCW wrestler Silver King, who starred as “Ramses” in the comedy “Nacho Libre” with Jack Black, died Saturday night in the ring, according to TMZ.

King, aka, Cesar Barron, was playing his tried-and-true role of villain in London at the Roundhouse when he suffered a heart attack, collapsing and dying. Authorities say he died at the venue.

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 take a kick to the chest, and that drops him to the ground. His face is planted into the mat and he never gets up.

It looks like Silver King was supposed to win the match, because the ref didn’t count him out, holding on the 2 count. His opponent turned Silver King over, making it appear he’s pinning him to end the match, but Silver King is unresponsive. The ref ends the match, but Silver King doesn’t move.

The ref takes off Silver King’s mask, and it’s apparent something is terribly wrong.
