The Roundhouse event involves some of the finest Lucha Libre fights, a term used in Mexico for freestyle professional wrestling. When Silver King suffered the attack, he was involved in a fight against Warrior Youth. The audience initially thought it was a part of the storyline in the show, however, when the medical team rushed towards the ring for checking the wrestler, they then realised that Silver King was facing a health emergency.
The official from the event then evacuated the crowd saying that a "sudden incident" has occurred without giving any hint about the heart attack. Shortly Lucha Libre AAA official page declared the death of Silver King where they posted his picture with caption 'Rest in Peace'
