• AAA Wrestler Passes Away After Last Year’s In-Ring Accident

AAA wrestler La Parka has passed away at the age of 56 after he couldn’t recover from in-ring accident from last year.

It should be noted that this is NOT the La Parka that wrestled in WCW.

During a match against RUSH, Murder Clown, and LA Park at Kaoz Lucha Libre’s 64 Anniversary Arena Coliseum event in Monterrey on Oct. 20, 2019, Parka went for a suicide dive on RUSH, but his feet got caught on the ropes and he fell head-first on the concrete floor.

You can watch it below:

This resulted in Parka suffering a neck and cervical fracture. Parka wasn’t able to talk and move his extremities for a few days after this, but was soon able to talk and regain feeling in his arms & legs.

In AAA’s announcement, it was revealed that Parka had a renal failure and then his lungs & kidneys failed completely.
