Many fans and wrestlers paid their respect to La Parka and his injury was caused due to a botched move.
La Parka’s final fight
The 54-year-old was fighting at a Koaz show on 21 October 2019 and on Friday, the wrestler showed signs of kidney failure and had to be put on assisted breathing, according to CNN.
The following day, his kidneys and lungs failed, and the wrestler passed away.
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.
