Adolfo Margarito Tapia Ibarra is a Mexican Luchador enmascarado, or masked professional wrestler. For years he has worked under the ring name L.A. Park, but is best known throughout the world as La Parka, especially from his many years in World Championship Wrestling (WCW). He was forced to change his name from "La Parka" to "L.A. Park" (Short for La Auténtica Park; "The Original Park") in early 2003 when Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) owner Antonio Peña asserted his copyright claims to the La Parka character, barring Tapia from using the name as he promoted his own La Parka. Tapia has worked for every major and a lot of minor wrestling promotions in Mexico as well as wrestling in Japan. Tapia's uncle originally wrestled as Volador, but later changed his character to Super Parka after Tapia gained world wide fame as La Parka. In 2008 a wrestler called "Black Spirit" made his professional wrestling debut and in 2010 it was officially acknowledge that he was the son of Adolfo Tapia when he started to work as El Hijo de L.A. Park ("the son of L.A. Park") He has held the IWC World Heavyweight Championship once. In March 2010 L.A. Park returned to AAA, starting a storyline with AAA's La Parka, pitting the original and the new La Parka against each other. At Triplemania XVIII Park defeated La Parka and earned the rights to once again be known as "La Parka". The result, however, was later thrown out.
