La Parka - Lucha Libre AAA
I cannot believe that this blog has been around since January 2007 and I have never done a write up on the famous luchador La Parka!
I dont know what I was (or wasn't) thinking.
Adolfo Tapia Ibarra was born on November 14, 1965 in Querétaro, Mexico.
He was trained by luchadors Alberto Mora and Raúl Reyes, and made his Lucha Libre debut in 1982 at the Deportivo Arena 47 in Monclova, Coahuila, Mexico.
Adolfo has wrestled under many names, Adolfo Tapia, El Gringo, El Minero,El Asesino de Tepito, Príncipe Island, Invasor Del Norte I, La Parka/La Parka and finally, L.A. Park.
He is the brother of El Hijo Del Cien, Super Parka, Johnny Ibarra and Desalmado are his uncles and Black Spirit (or El Hijo de L.A. Park) is his son.
La Parka has wrestled for Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA), World Championship Wrestling (WCW), Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), and almost every minor wrestling promotion in Mexico, and he's wrestled in Japan.
As you might have guessed from his long career, he has held several titles including:
In Asistencia Asesoria y Administracion he has held the IWC World Championship and the Mexican National Light Heavyweight Championship four times.
In Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre he held the CMLL World Tag Team Championships with Shocker.
In Independent Wrestling Revolution / Revolucha, he held the IWR / Revolucha Heavyweight Championship.
In the National Wrestling Alliance, he held the NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship.
In the World Wrestling Association, he held the WWA Light Heavyweight Championship twice.
And in Xtreme Latin American Wrestling, he held the XLAW Xtreme Heavyweight Championship twice.
And here is a video posted on YouTube by Strabos that has got to be one of the dream matches of all time....
