A wrestler who was hospitalized in Mexico on Monday after being hit in the head with a concrete block has undergone successful surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain.
Cuervo, a wrestler from Puerto Rico who was competing in Mexico, got knocked unconscious after a wrestler named Angel o Demonio threw a concrete block at his head from above/behind. The wrestler was immediately hospitalized afterward.
According to an update on Cuervo’s Facebook page, surgery was required to remove the clot and hours later it was said to be a success by his manager. He’s apparently in stable condition now.
Due to this incident, Angel o Demonio has been suspended indefinitely by the Boxing and Wrestling Commission of Mexico. They are also seeking to find out why the promoters had an extreme wrestling match when it is prohibited.
