Escoboza wrestled for more than 20 years and won several titles during his career.

His last fight was against Rush and he dove outside the ring. However, La Parka missed his opponent and went crashing into the steel barrier and concrete floor.

The impact seemed to have knocked him out and he was rushed to a nearby hospital to be looked at. Unfortunately, the 54-year-old was unable to recover from his injuries.
