On a Saturday night bus ride from Mazatlan to Mexico City, the rudo AAA luchador Abismo Negro suffered some sort of anxiety attack on the road in Sinaloa and asked the driver to pull over. He then texted his wife to say that he was in a panic, lost in some hills. A search was launched. By Sunday, Abismo Negro was dead, found drowned in a muddy river. The wrestler's real name was Andrés Palomeque González. Reports on his age varied between 35 and 37.
Some wrestling media has reported that steroids may have triggered the attack. A wake for Palomeque was held in Mazatlan, with La Prensa reporting on the wrestlers who showed up to pay their respects: "Crazzy Boys, El Elegido, Dark Escoria, Kenzo Susuki, Nicho, El Millonario, Mini Charli Manzon, Rocky Romero, El Elegido, Lola González, and Martha Villalobos, among others."
Palomeque's body was taken to his native Villahermosa, Tabasco, for burial.
