There were rumors going around social media saying the legendary pro wrestler priest Frey Tormenta passed away this week. It is not true.
The 75-year-old does apparently have COVID-19 but it has not been a severe enough case for him go to the hospital. He is currently recovering at home according to credible Mexican media outlets.
Tormenta began his Lucha Libre career under a mask in 1974 to earn extra money to fund an orphanage he founded. He officially retired from the ring in the early 2010s. The movies “The Man In The Golden Mask” (1991) and “Nacho Libre” (2006) were based on his story.
