As soon as it became clear that something was wrong, medics rushed into the ring to perform CPR, while the audience was asked to vacate the premises.

London Metro police said the death is being treated as non-suspicious.

The London Ambulance Service reported that two ambulances, an advanced paramedic and an incident response officer were sent to the venue after a call came through at 10.21pm.

Cesar Barron, known as Silver King, was a star in his native Mexico and appeared alongside the comic actor Jack Black in the 2005 film Nacho Libre.

WWE ( World Wrestling Entertainment) said in a statement it was "saddened" to learn of his death.

The Health and Safety Executive said an investigation would be in the remit of the local authority, but Camden Council has been unable to comment. However, we will not be posting them here as I believe it to be in poor taste.

She also hit out at Modi for not responding to the questions posed by the opposition. Gandhi said, "It is Election Commissioner's responsibility".

Following his death, Black posted an image on Instagram taken during filming, with the caption: "Vaya con dios, hermano", which translates to "go with God, brother".

King has wrestled on a professional level since 1990, which included being part of the WCW from 1997-2000.

A source from The Lucha Blog confirmed later that Silver King did indeed pass away. "Thank you and RIP". Obviously, my condolences go out to Silver King's family, friends, and fans.

"Sadly a person died at the scene", a spokeswoman added.

Lucha Libre, a term used to denote freestyle wrestling in Mexico, is a form of choreographed battle, during which wrestlers wear colourful masks and costumes.

Gonzalez had reprised his role as the "evil Ramses" from Nacho Libre during the bout.
