Former WCW wrestler Silver King has died after reportedly collapsing in the ring during a show in London.

The 51-year-old, who starred opposite Hollywood star Jack Black in the 2006 comedy Nacho Libre, had been performing at the Roundhouse in Camden on Saturday evening.

Organisers of the Lucha Libre show confirmed his death as tributes poured in for the Mexican, whose real name was Cesar Barron.

Witnesses said Silver King’s co-performers initially did not realise there was a problem

According to Camden New Journal, Silver King’s co-performers did not initially realise there was a problem after he collapsed following a kick to the side of his body.

He was turned over and counted out but when he failed to recover, a team of medics rushed on stage, the newspaper said.

Fans chanted “Silver, Silver” before the audience was told there would be a short break but the venue was cleared out shortly afterwards, it was reported.

A member of the audience told the Camden New Journal: “It seemed to be part of the show at first but then he didn’t get up – and then the medical team was on the stage.

“Everybody was cleared out and lots of police and ambulances were there.”

According to a description of the show on the Roundhouse’s website, Silver King was due to portray his villainous character Ramses from the film Nacho Libre.

Former WWE star Juventud “The Juice” Guerrera was also listed as one of the performers.

Former WWE stars Chris Jericho, X-Pac and Tommy Dreamer and ex-WCW president Eric Bischoff were among those to pay tribute to Silver King following his death.

X-Pac, whose real name is Sean Waltman, said he was “truly one of the greats”, while Jericho thanked him “for taking care of me and teaching me to become a better worker”.

Silver King joined World Championship Wrestling in 1997 and regularly appeared on its showpiece TV programme WCW Monday Nitro.

His highest profile match was an unsuccessful challenge for the WCW Cruiserweight Championship against Guerrera at Fall Brawl 1998.

He was released by the WCW in late 2000.

Lucha Libre wrestling was first introduced in the early 20th century and is known for its colourful masks, elaborate costumes, acrobatic techniques and high-flying manoeuvres.

Nigerians react to Jada Pullock’s domestic violence allegation against Wizkid

Published

on

A cross-section of Nigerians has reacted to the allegation by Wizkid’s third baby mama, Jada Pollock, accusing the star musician of physically abusing her.

DAILY POST earlier reported that the mother of Ayo Balogun’s third child has accused the singer of domestic violence.

The allegation has since stirred diverse reactions from Nigerians on social media.

While some Nigerians condemned the singer for allegedly being violent on his baby mama, others described the allegation as mere publicity stunt and demanded that he speak up on the claim.

Below are some comments gathered by DAILY POST from Twitter:

@tiffany_gracie: “Wizkid just have to say something on this one. This is domestic violence allegations that can take away everything he has built for 10 years or someone from his camp should speak up the cause.”

@kwakunie: “You f**king unhealthy looking coward! There are no walls for you to hide again. What do you have to say about this? Your fans can’t save you this time around. N*gga, you should be in Jail. Domestic violence is unacceptable. Wolf in Sheep Skin. Fela My black ass.”

@bashir_zaynab1: “Told Wizkid he did a big mistake by getting that ingrate Jada pregnant but the man blocked me on Instagram”.

@chukwuezugo: “Wizkid and Jada trending. An act of domestic violence is a big deal, as is an accusation of same. Both should be taken very seriously. Hopefully, the truth prevails.”

@freezone20: “I don’t support men beating women. Men please when you notice any animalistic behaviour in your woman while dating, please run away. Animalistic women can frustrate the hell out of a gentle soul and not everyone can control that part of them, Wizkid, beating”

@chillinkid20: “As much as I love Wizkid, I’m with Jada on this sh*t, n*gga is a dick, enough is enough.”

@inireakboy: “This is what we are saying, any female can just come out to say domestic abuse, domestic violence, sexual abuse, na problem say dem born us man, na problem, what is it gan, haha, Wizkid.”

@therealjude2: “These same Wizkid fans blasting Jada and saying she just wants to spoil his birthday, didn’t wait to to hear the full story of Busola allegations before protesting on Twitter. Everybody is a hypocrite.”

@dreadsToluwani: “Please stop defending Wizkid, Ain’t ready to stop being a Stan anytime soon. She said Ayo and not wizkid, Ayo and jada should go settle the dispute between them cos both of parties dey disturb Wizkid with this unnecessary drama.”

@kelvinbagwell02: “Wait, Wizkid put hands on his baby mama? Well, aren’t you a short bastard? This better just be true okpo, or I’m deleting all your shit from my devices.”

Nigerian Newspapers: 10 things you need to know this Wednesday morning

Published

on

Good morning! Here is today’s summary from Nigerian Newspapers

1. Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has appointed his legislative aides.

A statement Tuesday night by Lanre Lasisi, his Special Adviser on Media, noted that the appointments take immediate effect.

2. The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Most Revd. Matthew Kukah, has warned against blanket demonisation of herdsmen, especially of the Fulani stock.

He warned that such actions could be preamble to a breakout of violent confrontation against the Fulani.

3. The Christian Association of Nigeria(CAN) has dissociated itself from the visit by some notable leaders within its fold to the Common Wealth of Zion Assembly (COZA).

A statement signed on Tuesday by CAN’s National Director of Legal and Public Affairs, Evangelist Barrister Kwamkur Samuel Vondip, said the pastors who had visited the church were on their own and that the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria had set up a panel to investigate the rape allegation against Pastor Fatoyinbo.

4. The State Working Committee (SWC), and other major stakeholders in Bayelsa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Tuesday, adopted the direct mode of primaries to elect candidate for the November 16 governorship poll.

The decision was taken at a meeting well attended by key stakeholders, including the state leader of the party and former governor, Chief Timipre Sylva, the immediate past Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Senator Heineken Lokpobiri, a former member of the Buhari campaign Organisation, Preye Aganaba and elected National Assembly members of the party, held amidst rowdy atmosphere.

5. The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has hailed Gov. Seyi Makinde of Oyo state for making public his assets declarations forms, in line with his electioneering campaign promise.

Reacting, the party in a statement issued by his National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, said that such voluntary decision further demonstrated Makinde’s commitment to transparency and good governance, for which the people of the state voted massively for him in the March 9 governorship election.

6. The Supreme Court, on Tuesday, affirmed Uche Nwosu as the authentic governorship candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) in Imo State.

The Apex Court struck out the suit instituted by Leonard Okolienta, challenging the judgments of the lower courts.

7. President Muhammadu Buhari has observed that criminal elements are taking advantage of the focus on the North East to commit crimes in other parts of the country.

He promised that the successes recorded in degrading terrorists in the North East will be extended to other parts of the country experiencing challenges.

8. Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has called for the immediate impeachment of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila for allegedly negotiating with armed bandits in Zamfara.

HURIWA faulted the reported parley between the Speaker, bandits and hoodlums in Zamfara State, describing the act a high treason and one of the most serious crimes against the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

9. One person has been confirmed dead, with many injured on Tuesday, in a tussle on ownership of land between the people of Araromi Obu community in Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State and their Ikale neighbour in Okitipupa Local Government Area of the state.

Report said that crisis has been brewing between the two communities following a ruling of the Ondo State High Court in Akure, the Ondo capital, which declared Ikale community as the real owners of the land.

10. Nigerian Super Eagles will tonight battle Tunisia for the bronze medal of the African Cup of Nations in Egypt.
The kick off time for the match is 8pm, West African Time.
