    Adolfo Margarito Tapia Ibarra is a Mexican Luchador enmascarado (masked professional wrestler) best known throughout the world as LA PARKA, especially from his many years in World Championship Wrestling (WCW).

    One of the more popular Mexican competitors to make his way to WCW, La Parka didn’t earn the nickname “The Chairman of WCW” for his business acumen. No, the luchador in the skeleton outfit picked up that moniker due to his propensity for bashing his opponents with a steel chair, much to the delight of fans.

    Inspired by the imagery of Mexico’s Day of the Dead celebrations, La Parka first appeared in the AAA promotion in Mexico in 1992. His skeleton-like outfit and unusual charisma made him a quick fan favorite, despite his villainous actions in the ring.

    He caught the eyes of WCW officials when he took part in the groundbreaking “When Worlds Collide” pay-per-view in 1994, which led to him making his debut in the Atlanta-based promotion in 1996. Competing in the Cruiserweight division, La Parka often stood out because he was much taller and stockier than his lightning-fast opposition.

    Nice match. It looks like he's put on a few pounds of muscle since I've last seen him in action.

    At casino wrestling last weekend, the internet guys gave me a burned dvd entitled "Best of La Parka in Mexico vol. 1" Damn, when I was drunk I thought it said Memphis and not Mexico. And I just took it out of the paper case and it looks like cigarette ashes and a piece of weed are on it.
