The pro wrestling world has lost another wrestler.
Mexican pro wrestling legend La Parka (Jesus Alfonso Huerta Escoboza) passed away on Saturday evening, January 11, 2020 after suffering what ended up being fatal injuries following a dive spot in a match at a KAOZ Lucha Libre event the end of November in 2019.
La Parka was one of the biggest recent stars in the Mexican pro wrestling scene, and was considered one of the symbols of the AAA Lucha Libre promotion.
Huerta was the second La Parka. The original, Adolfo Tapia, a Hall of Famer, used the name in the 90s in AAA and later WCW, and is now L.A. Park.
The AAA Lucha Libre promotion issued the following statement:
The Lucha Blog posted the following remembrance of La Parka on Twitter shortly after the news of his passing was confirmed on Saturday night.
AAA's La Parka passed away tonight. He was 56. He suffered serious injuries on a dive at the end of November and never recovered.
