[10.0] "The most charismatic luchador of all time. His dancing, screaming, and strutting endeared him to many. He could hold his own in the ring. Now he's more of a brawler, but damn he's still entertaining"

[10.0] "My ratings are based upon personal "watchability" and this guy was always the underlining #1 reason to make sure I recorded Nitro and if nothing else, made time to squeeze in a La Parka match. Priorities. As an adult, ah of course I still love the thing! A chunky dancing skeleton who will WALLOP YOU with a chair. He also plays chair guitar and struts around like he owns the place with it. What a scene. Love his Mexican intros with "Thriller", often including elaborate dance routines. Oh yeah, he wrestlers fine enough too. Best wrestling character ever? (ps: RIP to the most intense burgers I've ever had named after the guy, including but not limited to brazed goat in ghost pepper mole, orale! )"

Cool albeit slightly goofy look with the skeleton costume. Can make you bust out laughing any second with the strut and his goofy ass screams."

[6.0] "Way past his peak, but still a hell of an entertainer. I also respect how honest he is these days about what he has gone through in this business, even calling out some promoters. He is currently one of the few respectable lucha libre veterans out there."

[8.0] "It's hard to not love La Parka. I always loved his attire and the air guitar with the chair he did was so good. I found his dubbing gimmick to be pretty funny and kind of unique. It was a bit similar to what Kai-En-Tai was doing, but La Parka usually got into more trouble for 'his words'. Despite him being a bigger guy than most luchadores, he was able to pull off some impressive spots and had good chemistry with most opponents. To this day, I have a soft spot for La Parka and he's up there as one of my favorites from WCW."

[8.0] "Was one of my favourites a few years back but he just sort of limps his way through matches now. Consistent top draw in Mexico, One of the most Charismatic performers in Lucha Libre history, only has to strutt or play air guitar with a chair and crowd goes crazy."

[9.0] "Da nun Jesus Alfonso Huerta Escoboza der den La Parka bei AAA verkörperte starb, denken viele der Original LA PARKA ist gestorben. Ohne richtigen Quellen und halt Wrestling Wissen würde ich vielleicht auch das denken. Denn das mit Namen ist doch etwas verwirrend. Dieser LA PARKA erfreut sich bester Gesundheit ist aber inzwischen genauso alt wie der andere. Eine Legende des Mexikanischen Wrestling. Es beherrscht viele Stile, kann auch bluten und teilweise weiß man auch nicht ist er Face oder Heel."

[10.0] "If your onky exposure to L. A. Park is what he did in WCW then you have no idea who he really was or just how big of a star this man ended up being and still is as of this day. Park currently in the twilight of his career is also about as hot as you can possibly be in Mexican wrestling. He's the top legend currently performing and should still be considered one of the very best brawlers in the world."

[6.0] "I'm still a little foggy on what went down with the name thing. I guess he lost the rights somehow? Anyhow, this guy was always entertaining in WCW with the over-the-top skeleton garb & and chair guitar. He was mostly a jobber for other cruiserweights, but he was solid in the ring & never a disappointing guy to watch in the ring."

[10.0] "La Par-K ein sehr gutes Gesamtpacket, das Gimmick passt einfach und ist sehr gut , er hat viel Charisma. Im Ring ist er auch sehr stark und sehr variabel kann klassiches Lucha, Hardcore und auch Comedy Absolute Mexikolegende mit viele starken Matches in seiner Karriere."

[10.0] "Gets better every year, one of the greatest luchadors of all time. Was a 30 year old heavyweight coming into WCW and has managed to overcome every hardship thrown his way. Most deserving of being the first wrestler I know of to main event a countries top two promotions top two shows of the year, not to mention doing it at the age of 53. Has been a regular main eventer ever since leaving WCW, and has stayed true to Mexico after the experience of Vince Russo booking. It is a shame we have not got to see more of him in America, Japan or anywhere like that, but his body of work in Mexico speaks for itself. May he retire mask in place, hijo headed for greatness, and an immortal legend left in his place."

[8.0] "The overall fact that La Park still recieves so much praise for his current work even more so then his old work speaks to the level of La Park's popularity. This skull faced luchador is charismatic, funny and has replaced any semblance of high flying with brawling, and has made that transition quite smooth. While mostly a mid carder, La Park is a legendary mid carder."

[8.0] "I remember him from WCW. Despite his "jobber" status, he was one of my favorite wrestlers and I would often imitate him. I had no idea what a legend he was in his native Mexico. Plus he was a highlight of the early days of TNA, simply because I got to see him again, however briefly."

[8.0] "La Parka der Skull-Captain und Chairman der WCW. Der beste Jobber den ich je gesehen habe und das Publikum hat ihn immer abgefeiert. Das Kostüm, die Promos, also wenn mir etwas aus der alten WCW fehlt dann gehört er definitiv dazu."

[8.0] "Ich fand La Parka zu WCW Zeiten grandios, seine synchronisierten Promos & Comedy Einlagen bei seinem Einzug & während seiner Kämpfe haben mich immer sehr gut unterhalten. Zwar hatte er zugegeben nie das Potential zum Main Eventer, aber als solider Midcarder war er doch mit Basis und Garant für gutes Entertainment. Zumal er trotz seiner Statur doch einer der besseren Luchadores war. Natürlich hat auch seine Form in den vergangenen Jahren gelitten, aber das Alter geht nunmal an niemanden spurlos vorbei!"

Wenn er kam bebte die Halle, obwohl er ausschließlich verlieren musste, was eigentlich schade ist, da er wohl einer besten mexikanischen Heavyweight-Wrestler überhaupt ist. Mein All-Time Favourite aus Mexiko!"
