This note was sent out by Perros del Mal, Monday evening

Hace unos días se daba la noticia por medio de Producciones Perros del Mal que el luchador Héctor Garza se encontraba con problemas de salud.

Hoy lamentamos comunicar de viva voz del propio luchador así como de sus médicos que el gladiador regiomontano padece de cáncer pulmonar, motivo por el cual se retirara por un tiempo de los encordados, para someterse al tratamiento correspondiente, mismo que contara con 6 quimioterapias, para después volver a realizarle exámenes y determinar el progreso del tratamiento, por este medio los mantendremos informados de su evolución.

Toda la comunidad luchística lamenta los momentos por los que esta atravesando el luchador y amigo, de parte de toda la familia de la lucha libre y por supuesto de la empresa Perros del Mal le deseamos una pronta recuperación a Héctor Garza para poder verlo de vuelta en los cuadriláteros.

Por ultimo le pedimos a todos los aficionados sus oraciones y los mejores deseos para Héctor Garza.

The abbreviated translation: Hector Garza’s health problems are lung cancer. He’s retiring from wrestling for the moment to fight it, and has 6 chemotherapy sessions scheduled. They’ll do more exams after them to trace the progress of the disease and re-evaluate then.

Perros del Mal first referred to Garza’s problems twelve days ago, right before the latest Perros del Mal show, and only saying something would be announced in the next couple of days. Garza was supposed to debut his Angeles Rebeledes faction on that show, which (judging from Lucha s2000 interviews) would’ve been himself, Toscano and Latin Lover once Latin dealt with his own health issues.

Despite missing the Perros show, Garza did work the Copa Antonio Pena at Heroes Inmortales. It’s surprising he participated and the 12 men royal rumble match being quietly expanded to 13 men suggests they had plans to pull him from the match but changed their mind before the show. Garza was last one in the rumble and may have not stayed long. It’s his last match for the moment. Garza was scheduled to work in Monterrey this Sunday, but the promotion announced he would be off the card this afternoon, as news started to get out.

I hope Hector has a full and speedy recovery.
