Today’s a sad day for the wrestling world as Mexican luchador La Parka II (real name Jesus Alfonso Huerta Escoboza) has passed away after struggling to recover from an in-ring accident in November. La Parka II was a star in AAA and took over the name from former WCW and current Major League Wrestling star LA Park. You can read up on the history between the two La Parkas here.
The 56-year-old got injured at a AAA show in November after attempting a suicide dive. Sadly, his feet got caught on the ropes and he wound up diving headfirst into a guardrail. As said by Luchablog, he wasn’t expected to live a day after the incident but he valiantly fought for two months.
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.
La Parka is one of the bigger recent stars in Mexican wrestling, the symbol of AAA. He is not the La Parka who wrestled in WCW and is now LA Park. pic.twitter.com/HiBICfYHri
