Dude, you gotta check out LA Park vs La Parka @ Triplemania 18, was supposed to be over the name using those legal issues as a backstory. Great match, one of my favorites.

Yeah, but they both still use the name and that's what I don't like in AAA. Not following their storylines, just like TNA (at least they used to, now I don't watch it, I don't know).

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

I disagree, I found it to be remarkable booking in that it allowed both incredibly over talent to maintain their momentum/characters. Was also a fantastic way to introduce PDM. It was win-win, the match had the benefit of the hype but the result allowed the company to make even more money with both characters still on the roster.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

The combination of Mari vs Fabi always leads to something special. Check out their match from Triplemania 16 which is up there as one of the best female lucha matches of all time.

Original La Parka (one in 90s AAA, guy who should have been bigger in WCW) = Adolfo Tapia. Tapia was actually a wrestler since the 80s and went under various names, but then AAA came along and Antonio Pena gave him the "La Parka" gimmick. Tapia started working exclusively for WCW where he was a pretty big hit, and Pena still wanted to use the "La Parka" gimmick since it getting worldwide notice now in WCW. So he created "La Parka Jr".

Tapia left WCW and started working for Mexican promotions, which was fine by Pena, until Tapia head over to CMLL in 2003. CMLL and AAA are rivals, so naturally Pena didn't want CMLL to have 'his' gimmick of "La Parka". There were legal issues and Tapia was forced to go from "La Parka" to "LA Park" (La Authenica(sp) Park - "The ORIGINAL Park"), while La Parka Jr got to drop the "Jr" from his name.

Fast forward to 2010, and Tapia (LA Park) comes back to AAA and actually feuds with La Parka (formerly Jr) over the name "La Parka".
