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".
