La Parka Passes Away at Age 54

La Parka

La Parka, a veteran of AAA, has passed away from complications stemming from his bad fall this past October. He passed away on Saturday night, following the failure of his lungs and kidney. Parka was 54 years old.

Parka, who’s real name is Jesus Alonso Huerta Escoboza, began working for AAA Lucha Libre back in 1995 under a mummy gimmick and named Karis La Momia (Karis The Mummy). In 1996, Jesus became La Parka Jr. which was done in part by Antonio Pena to capitalize on the success of the original one, and in 2003, he became the new La Parka when the original headed to rival promotion, CMLL. The original Parka has since continued wrestling under the name LA Park (which stands for La Auténtica Parka).

He has been a staple of AAA Lucha Libre and continues to perform to this very day. He recently appeared at this past fall’s Heroes Inmortales in an angle with Konnan and a brief return of Vampiro, who wound up helping him after being attached by Parka Negra and others. The angle has been a long-standing one that could ultimately involve Parka’s son as he was attacked earlier in the year by Los Mercernarios who Konnan was siding with at the time.

Last Word on Pro Wrestling sends its condolences to Parka’s family, friends, and peers.
