WWE has interest in bringing in AAA’s La Parka. However, the person currently under the La Parka garb isn’t the same person that assumed the character in WCW in the late 90’s, who was Adolfo Tapia. In 2004, Adolfo Tapia was forced to wrestle under the name L.A. Park, as the AAA promotion owns the rights to the gimmick and the name. L.A. Park currently wrestles for CMLL, AAA’s rival promotion. The La Parka in AAA is usually denoted as La Parka, Jr. (even though he is only one year younger), La Parka (AAA) or La Parka (PAP). His real name is JesÃºs Alfonso Escoboza. He’s also a bit smaller than the WCW version. The WCW version was 6-2 and 255 pounds. The one WWE is interested in is 6-0 and 215 pounds.
There is a movement in WWE to try to bring in more smaller, international stars to try to recreate the magic of Nitro in the mid-90s. They also want to get a jump on WSX and TNA, who both are pushing light heavyweights. They’re interested in a few guys in Mexico, not to a mention a few guys in Japan. Other names discussed include Gedo and Jado.
