Silver King dead: EastEnders star Jake Wood saw wrestler die in front of him

Eastenders star Jake Wood claims he witnessed the death of wrestling star Silver King from the ringside.

Jake, who plays Max Branning in the long-running soap, tweeted that he saw the wrestler die as he sat in the front row with his family at the Roundhouse in North-West London on Saturday night.

In an emotional social media post, he wrote: “Shockingly my family and I were front row at @roundhouseldn last night when legend of the wrestling world Silver King aka César Barrón lost his life in the ring.

"Thoughts and prayers to his family and friends, so sad #rip #silverking #roundhouse #luchalibra #nacholibra #cesarbarron”.


This news probably only made it into The Mirror because some soap 'celebrity' was at the event

Sadly though, the life expectancy of your average wrestler is not a very long one
