The pro-wrestling industry is saddened to learn the first death reported by Coronavirus pandemic, yesterday. The first pro wrestler to get victimized by this deadly virus is a Mexican wrestler who passed away.
The Luchador performer named Black Demon died at the age of 39, as per a report from ringsidenews.com. Earlier several superstars were noted to be in quarantine to be safe with their family.
But Demon appeared to be vulnerable to the COVID-19 attack. The news was first broken by Super Luchas who reported that Black Demon, real name Roberto Munoz Carrillo passed away on April 13th.
It was due to the complications related to COVID-19 as he was tested positive. It was added that the concerned authorities have not confirmed his death, but his family had.
Sonora, Mexico authorities have reportedly confirmed 12 deaths due to Coronavirus pandemic. The town has around 100 confirmed positive cases when the Black Demon’s death was noted.
It is another black day in the pro-wrestling world as we send our thoughts and prayers to Demon’s family. An uncertain situation has been created due to this awful pandemic which does not have any definite end.
This death is just another example of why the coronavirus pandemic needs to be seriously taken on every aspect of our life. Being safe at the indoors is perhaps the only way dictated by the doctors to get rid of the Coronavirus situation and get back to normalcy soon.
The pro-wrestling world has come to an overall halt and there’s no update when a company can start taping shows with fan-filled arenas.
Perhaps, that can’t be done for the entire 2020 if the current medical updates are any indications. Meanwhile, WWE was deemed essential business by the Florida government, last week which allows the company to go forward with live TV tapings.
WWE can now use more talents in tapings and air each episode of Raw and SmackDown in live format instead of banking shows in taped formats.
