Gonzalez also competed as Silver King in World Championship Wrestling from 1997 and 2000.
“A champion luchador in his native Mexico, Silver King entertained audiences across the globe,” World Wrestling Entertainment said in a release. “And was a standout in WCW’s Cruiserweight division in the late ’90s.”
He appeared as a champion wrestler and comic villain in the 2006 movie "Nacho Libre," which starred Jack Black.
“Vaya con dios, hermano (Go with God, brother),” Black wrote on social media with an old photo of Gonzalez on the set during filming.
