Pedro Aguayo Ramírez (July 23, 1979 – March 21, 2015) was a Mexican luchador or professional wrestler and promoter who achieved fame in lucha libre as Perro Aguayo Jr. or El Hijo del Perro Aguayo ("The Son of Perro Aguayo"). He was the real-life son of lucha libre legend Perro Aguayo and not a storyline "Junior". Aguayo was best known as the leader of the Los Perros del Mal stable, which he started in Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) in mid-2004. The stable became a significant draw in Mexican professional wrestling, peaking during Aguayo's storyline rivalries with Místico and Héctor Garza. In October 2008, Aguayo left CMLL to start his own independent professional wrestling promotion Perros del Mal Producciones, built around members of his Los Perros del Mal stable. In June 2010, Aguayo returned to AAA after a seven-year absence to start an invasion storyline involving his stable. Aguayo died on March 21, 2015, due to a freak accident during a wrestling match, which was covered extensively by many news outlets across the world. Following his death, Aguayo was inducted into the AAA Hall of Fame and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Hall of Fame.
Pedro Aguayo Ramírez was born on July 23, 1979, in Mexico City, Mexico, the son of Luz Ramírez and Pedro Aguayo Damián, a luchador, or professional wrestlier known under the ring name Perro Aguayo. His uncle, Jesús Ramírez Ángel, was better known under the name Ídolo and his cousins competed as Ídolo I and Ídolo II. Aguayo's cousin works as "Pepe Aguayo", inspired by Perro Sr.
Professional wrestling career
Debuting professionally at the age of 15, Aguayo Jr. started out wrestling established veterans in AAA. He often teamed with his father, and the pair won the Mexican National Tag Team Championship on two occasions, defeating the teams of Fuerza Guerrera/Mosco de la Merced and El Cobarde II/El Cobarde Jr., respectively. Aguayo Jr. worked his first major show on June 18, 1995, when he faced and lost to Juventud Guerrera as part of Triplemanía III-B. Aguayo Jr. formed a team of all "juniors", Los Junior Atómicos, including Blue Demon Jr., La Parka Jr. and Máscara Sagrada Jr. The four defeated Charly Manson, May Flowers, Nygma and El Picudo to win the Mexican National Atómicos Championship during a show in Jalisco. Five months later they lost the championship to Los Vipers (Histeria, Maniaco, Mosco de la Merced and Psicosis) at the 1999 Verano de Escándalo show. After Los Junior Atómicos disbanded, Aguayo began teaming regularly with Héctor Garza, engaging in a four-way storyline feud with Heavy Metal and Latin Lover. These four competed in various tag and four-way matches throughout the lengthy feud. One of the highlights of the storyline was Heavy Metal being shaved bald after losing a combination four-way steel cage match and lucha de apuesta on the 2001 Guerra de Titanes show, when Garza pinned Heavy Metal. Later on Latin Lover would defeat Garza in another lucha de apuesta. Aguayo Jr. and Garza defeated Los Vipers (Abismo Negro and Electroshock) to win the Mexican National Tag Team Championship. The duo held the title for 61 days before losing it to Pirata Morgan and El Texano.
Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (2003–2008)
In May 2003, Aguayo Jr. moved to Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL). He was initially brought in as a técnico to team with Negro Casas against Los Guerreros del Infierno, but did not receive the expected positive reactions from the crowd, and CMLL decided to turn him heel by having him win a tournament for a shot at Atlantis' Michinoku Pro Wrestling Tohoku Junior Heavyweight Championship. He won the tournament over established popular heels like Dr. Wagner Jr. and Rey Bucanero, so by the time he met the babyface Atlantis for the title, he was seen as a heel by the fans. The title challenge was unsuccessful, but Aguayo was quickly put into a program with Los Capos with the story being he was getting revenge on Universo 2000 for ending his father's career. During this feud, Shocker's popular Los Guapos group backed Aguayo Jr. and he became a face again. The feud continued through the winter and into 2004 and was ended when Aguayo and El Terrible (a member of Los Guapos) defeated Cien Caras and Máscara Año 2000 in a double hair vs. hair match at the 2004 Homenaje a Dos Leyendas: El Santo y Salvador Lutteroth show. In the spring, Aguayo Jr. once again backed up Negro Casas and Shocker in their feud with Pierroth Jr., Vampiro Canadiense and Tarzan Boy. The two groups went at it in trios, singles, and tag matches before they were put in the annual "Cage of Death" match where the last two men in the cage, regardless of which team they are on, face each other in a hair vs. hair match. The heel trio escaped early and Shocker made a quick exit as well. Aguayo Jr. and Casas then faced each other, and Aguayo Jr. pinned Casas, winning his hair. Tensions began to rise between Casas and Aguayo Jr. after that point, and when Héctor Garza jumped to CMLL in July, Aguayo Jr. ditched Casas and joined him. After turning heel again, he took part in the Leyenda de Plata tournament, held in honor of El Santo. After securing his place in the semifinals, Aguayo Jr. interfered in Negro Casas' match with Atlantis, costing Casas the bout and allowing Atlantis to advance. After defeating Atlantis in the semifinals, Aguayo Jr. faced the previous year's winner, Felino, for the trophy. After Aguayo Jr. won the match, El Hijo del Santo came to the ring to award him the trophy, but Aguayo Jr. smashed it, claiming that Santo wasn't nearly the legend that Perro Aguayo Sr. was. The angle was hot and played off the feud the original Santo and Perro Aguayo had during the 1970s. Due to El Hijo del Santo's short tour with CMLL, the feud was rushed towards an indecisive singles match. The closest thing to closure for the feud was a trios match at the CMLL 71st Anniversary Show where the team of Hijo del Perro Aguayo, Hèctor Garza and El Terrible (soon to be named La Furia del Norte) defeated Hijo del Santo, Negro Casas and Shocker. After that match, Santo focused more on his program with Averno and Los Guerreros del Infierno and Aguayo Jr. set his sights on Casas (to whom he lost), and the feud cooled down from there.
Starting in November 2004, Aguayo Jr. restarted his feud with Los Capos by teaming frequently with Vampiro and Pierroth Jr., who were also feuding with Los Capos at the time. At the year-end show, he had another singles match with Universo 2000 which led to Aguayo's father running in and making the save. In February 2005, Perro Aguayo Sr. announced his return to wrestling for one match where he would team with his son against Cien Caras and Máscara Año 2000 in a double hair vs. hair match. The Aguayos won the match (which was also billed as Cien Caras' retirement match), in the main event of the 2005 Homenaje a Dos Leyendas show. After the match, La Familia de Tijuana (Halloween, Damián 666), and Aguayo Jr. decided to start a new faction, Los Perros del Mal ("The Bad Dogs"). Soon, the group would consist of Aguayo Jr., La Familia, La Furia del Norte, Blue Demon Jr., Pierroth Jr. and Pierroth's storyline sons. The group took on many rivals, including Negro Casas, Felino, Heavy Metal (who had just jumped from AAA), Máscara Mágica, Universo 2000 and Aguayo's new focus, the rising star Místico who had defeated him in a main event singles match. The two agreed to a hair vs. mask match, but no date was announced. Los Perros del Mal faced off against their rivals in the 2005 "Cage of Death" match, where Damián 666 took the hair of Máscara Mágica. On May 5, 2006, Aguayo Jr. was defeated by Rayo de Jalisco Jr. and El Canek in a three-way match for the IWRG Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship in Nezahualcoyotl. Aguayo Jr.'s final major feud in CMLL was with Héctor Garza, which culminated in a Hair vs. Hair match on March 21, 2008, at Homenaje a Dos Leyendas, which Aguayo Jr. won via a low blow.
Los Perros del Mal and return to AAA (2008–2015)
Aguayo Jr. left CMLL in October 2008, along with fellow Los Perros Del Mal members Damián 666 and Mr. Águila, to start his own promotion called Perros del Mal Producciones. The new promotion's debut show took place on December 7, 2008, in Mexico City. On that show, Aguayo Jr. tag-teamed with Cibernético and Dr. Wagner Jr. to face L.A. Park, Olímpico and Headhunter A, and was victorious.
On June 6, 2010, at Triplemanía XVIII, Aguayo returned to AAA to lead Perros del Mal in an invasion of the promotion. The group quickly aligned themselves with Konnan and Dorian Roldan's La Legión Extranjera, La Milicia and Los Maniacos to form La Sociedad. On August 14 at Verano de Escandalo El Hijo del Perro Aguayo wrestled his first major match for AAA since his return, when he, L.A. Park and Damián 666 defeated El Mesías, Cibernético and La Parka in a six-man tag team match, when Perro pinned Mesías. On October 1 at Héroes Inmortales IV El Mesías defeated Perro in a singles match. Afterwards, Aguayo injured his knee, sidelining him for the rest of the year. However, he made a surprise appearance on December 5, 2010 during the main event of Guerra de Titanes, helping Damián 666, Halloween and X-Fly hand Los Psycho Circus their first-ever loss in a steel cage weapons match. On March 18, 2011, at Rey de Reyes, Aguayo Jr. represented Los Perros in an eight-man tag team match, where he, Damián 666, Halloween and Super Crazy defeated Potencia Mundial (Dr. Wagner Jr. and Los Psycho Circus), after Aguayo Jr. pinned Wagner with La Lanza, following a chair shot.
On April 8, 2011. Aguayo Jr. underwent emergency surgery to remove a golf ball-sized tumor from his stomach. During the surgery, a peptic ulcer burst, and he was placed in an intensive care unit at the hospital in Guadalajara, Jalisco. Aguayo Jr. was released from the hospital on April 19 and was scheduled to receive treatment for his condition for a full year. The following day, Perros del Mal announced that Aguayo's tumor had been found to be benign and that he would be returning to the ring at the promotion's event on May 8. Aguayo made his return to AAA, in a non–wrestling role, on May 1. In his return match on May 8, Aguayo continued his and Los Perros del Mal's feud with Los Psycho Circus by pinning Psycho Clown after a low blow in a six-man tag team match. The feud continued on May 29 at Perros del Mal Producciones' third anniversary show, where Los Psycho Circus defeated Los Perros del Mal in a six-man tag team steel cage mask vs. hair match. As a result, Super Crazy, the last man left in the cage, was forced to have his head shaved bald. Aguayo Jr. was set to wrestle as part of Los Perros del Mal at Triplemanía XIX, facing Los Psycho Circus to determine the first-ever AAA World Trios Champions, but was forced to pull out of the event due to an adverse reaction to the medication given to him as part of his tumor treatment. Aguayo returned on July 24 at a Perros del Mal event, where he teamed with Damián 666 and Halloween to face Blue Demon Jr., Cassandro and L.A. Park in a match, which ended in a no contest when Park turned on his partners. Aguayo Jr. next returned to AAA on August 19, replacing L.A. Park and teaming with Damián 666 and Halloween against El Mesías, Joe Líder and El Zorro in a six-man tag team match, which they lost via disqualification when Líder was attacked by his former tag team partner Nicho el Millonario. After the match, Aguayo officially named Nicho the newest member of Los Perros del Mal. Aguayo Jr. made his return to pay-per-view on October 9, 2011 at Héroes Inmortales, where he unsuccessfully challenged Dr. Wagner Jr. for the AAA Latin American Championship in a bullterrier match. Afterward, Aguayo Jr. began a feud with Jack Evans. On December 16, 2011 at Guerra de Titanes, Aguayo and Evans continued their rivalry in a six-man tag team match, during which they busted each other open. The match was won when Aguayo Jr.'s teammate Héctor Garza pinned Fénix. The feud between Aguayo Jr. and Evans continued through to Rey de Reyes on March 18, 2012, where Aguayo Jr. pinned Evans to win the Rey de Reyes tournament and earn a chance to contend for the AAA Mega Championship. On August 5 at Triplemanía XX, Aguayo Jr. unsuccessfully challenged El Mesías for the AAA Mega Championship. Afterwards, Aguayo Jr. started a year-long rivalry with Cibernético, which culminated in a lucha de apuesta in the main event of Triplemanía XXI on June 16, 2013. Aguayo Jr. was victorious, forcing Cibernético to have his head shaved bald.
In August 2013, Aguayo teamed with Cibernético against his former stable, La Secta. On October 18 at Héroes Inmortales VII, La Secta eliminated Aguayo Jr., Cibernético, and El Mesías from the Copa Antonio Peña, which led to the three retaliating by costing Secta members Dark Escoria and Dark Espiritu their match for the AAA World Tag Team Championship. Aguayo Jr.'s tecnico turn was completed on November 22, when Los Perros del Mal members Daga and Psicosis turned on him, labeling him a traitor for teaming with Cibernético. However, on December 8 at Guerra de Titanes, Aguayo Jr. turned on Cibernético, rejoined Daga and Psicosis and brought Los Perros del Mal back under the umbrella of the reformed La Sociedad. On August 17, 2014, at Triplemanía XXII, Aguayo Jr. started a new feud with the debuting El Patrón by attacking him and his father Dos Caras at the start of the show. Later that night in the main event, Aguayo Jr. defeated Cibernético, Dr. Wagner Jr. and Myzteziz, in a four-way elimination match to win Copa Triplemanía XXII. After the match, Aguayo Jr. was immediately attacked by El Patrón. The attack led to a match at Héroes Inmortales VIII where Aguayo Jr. and El Texano Jr. defeated El Patrón and El Mesías. In subsequent months, Aguayo Jr. focused on Myzteziz, and resuming the storyline that started in CMLL when Myzteziz was known as Místico, by issuing a challenge for a mask vs. hair match at Triplemanía XXIII. The storyline led to the main event of the 2015 Rey de Reyes where Aguayo Jr. teamed up with Pentagón Jr., only to lose to Myzteziz and the returning Rey Mysterio Jr.
On March 20, 2015, Aguayo wrestled a tag team match, teaming with Manik against Rey Mysterio Jr. and Xtreme Tiger at a show for The Crash promotion in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. During the match, Mysterio used a headscissors takedown to propel Aguayo out of the ring, but Aguayo returned to the ring, upon which Mysterio dropkicked Aguayo in the back/shoulder to set up for Mysterio's signature 619 as Aguayo landed on the middle rope (the proper position for the 619). Manik then fell onto the middle rope beside Aguayo—when Aguayo appeared to be limp and unconscious, Manik shook him slightly to revive him. Mysterio performed the 619, but did not hit either opponent. While the match continued, Konnan, who was at ringside, then attempted to revive the seemingly unconscious Aguayo by shaking him. The match still continued, with Mysterio next checking on the unmoving Aguayo, bringing it to the referee's attention. The match continued, with Mysterio pinning Manik at the center of the ring while Konnan again attempted to revive Aguayo.
With the match over, various personnel went to Aguayo, believing he was just unconscious and in need of medical help. Officials later brought Aguayo out of the ring. When paramedics arrived, Aguayo was brought to the local Del Prado hospital, where he was pronounced dead around 1:00am on March 21. Aguayo was 35 years old.
According to the initial announcement from the hospital, Aguayo died from a cervical spine trauma, reportedly as a result of the dropkick by Mysterio Jr. that propelled him forward to the ring ropes, causing severe whiplash trauma that snapped his neck. The cause of death was later announced as cardiac arrest, due to a cervical stroke caused by three fractured vertebrae. Autopsy results showed that Aguayo Jr. broke his C1, C2, and C3 vertebrae. The coroner stated that the fractures took place at two different moments of impact and that Aguayo died almost instantly. Aguayo Jr. was not immediately attended to by a physician and was actually taken from the ring on a piece of plywood instead of a stretcher, which led to some criticism of the event organizers. However, the coroner stated that it made no difference. The Tijuana wrestling commission later explained that the doctor was backstage, attending to two other injuries that happened during the show. One of those injuries was a spinal injury and they did not want to remove that wrestler from the stretcher he was on, which was why they used the plywood to move Aguayo from the ring. The doctors worked on resuscitating Aguayo for over an hour before declaring him dead. On March 21, the attorney general for Baja California announced that they would conduct an investigation into the death of Aguayo Jr. to determine if there was a possibility of criminal charges being filed, however no such charges were ever filed. Aguayo Jr. was buried in Guadalajara on March 23 with Konnan and Rey Mysterio Jr. serving as pallbearers. After his death, the Comisión de Deporte del Senado del México (The Commission of Sport of the Mexican Senate) presented the initiative "Ley para la Seguridad del Deporte en el País" (Law for the Safety of Sport in the Country").
Many promotions, including AAA, CMLL, The Crash, Lucha Underground and World Wrestling League (WWL), paid tribute to Aguayo Jr. following his death. On August 9 at Triplemanía XXIII, Aguayo Jr. was inducted into the AAA Hall of Fame.
