Abismo Negro

Abismo Negro

On March 22nd, 2009, the body of luchador Abismo Negro was found drown under a bridge near El Rosario Mexico. Appearing to be in an unusually agitated state he had demanded that the driver of the bus he was on pull over in seemingly the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night. No one knows what happened to him between the time he exited the bus and when his body was found the next day.
