    Well CMLL is back in some form, so why not I suppose? Besides the obvious reasons.

    Sounds like they are trying to press on and do Triplemania this year....

    Wizard of Oz references aside, Pete is spot on here as far as I know! The politics of lucha libre are quite complicated. For a more recent example, refer to the confusing period where Pentagon Jr had seemingly half a dozen ring names at once!

    Ugh. That is just awful and confusing and dumb. Kind of like when the Scarecrow finally got his brain, but still was dumb.

    The sum of the square roots of any two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the remaining side. Oh, joy! Rapture! I've got a brain!
    The actual Pythagorean Theorem is: The sum of the squares of the legs of a right triangle is equal to the square of the remaining side (hypotenuse).

    I'm sure someone who knows more will be able to tell you if I'm wrong, but the gist as I understand it is the guy who ran AAA owned the gimmick, so when the first La Parka went to WCW he created his own version of the character to mitigate the damage, called La Parka Jr. So there were two La Parka's (one jr) so long as the original was mainly working in the US, but when he signed for CMLL, then AAA management made it a legal situation, which upgraded La Parka jr just to La Parka and meant that the original had to rebrand - hence L.A. Park.

    I think that about covers it, though as I say, someone will be able to correct me if I'm way off base.

    Gotcha. Thanks, but do you know the reasons for 2 La Parkas and why the name change?

    Not the WCW one. T'other one.

    I need some help, clarification.

    Apparently La Parka has passed away.

    Which one? Is it the one that I remember from WCW, who was the 'Chairman of WCW' who I think became L.A. Park for reasons I am still unclear.

    Of the other one, which took the name La Parka for some reason that I am still usure even after reading some info about it.

    I don't think not having a mask will hurt him at all, we've had plenty of lucha stars without masks over the years.

    Laredo Kid is going to be big by 2020 because he's on that Exatlon reality show right now. It's basically Mexico's Survivor and it generally gets you a lot of publicity for being on it. He and Myzteziz Jr. (another really talented young high flyer) are both on it and regardless of what happens they should both benefit. Plus my understanding is that Laredo will be in AEW at some point too so that can only help him.

    Vikingo will be a mega star. He's probably the most innovative high flyer out there right now other than maybe Alex Zayne, he's got a ton of charisma and he's pretty much money every time he wrestles. AEW wants him too; it's just a matter of when he gets his visa. Even then he'll be a big deal in AAA for years to come I'd reckon. The only thing that'll hurt him is he doesn't have a mask, but that's a minor thing when he can do some of the stuff he does.

    😊

    How big a star will Laredo Kid be by the end of 2021?

    And Vikingo, for that matter. He's so good!

    For those who enjoyed talking about LA Park earlier, mizfan and I talk to each other (and sometimes ourselves) about it here too! Join us. Come to the lucha side. WE HAVE THIS GUY!

    Hey, AEW loves taking cues from WCW already so bringing in a load of sweet luchadors would be perfect!

    AEW wants both Vikingo and Taurus quite a bit. Vikingo would already be working AEW if he had his visa in order; that's who they wanted to be Pentagon and Fenix's partner at Fyter Fest but the visa issues got in the way, which led to Laredo Kid getting the shot (which was fine by me; Laredo Kid has been the best luchador in the world this year and should be used all the time when he returns from appearing on that reality show he recently joined). Once that's resolved he'll be there. As for Taurus I know for a fact he was approached by Tony Khan after that high acclaimed trios match in PWG earlier this year and was also the guy who was paired up with Cody when he went down to AAA. They're very high on him too, so I would expect you'll see him before long.


    Personally I think we'll be seeing a lot more AAA talent on AEW going forward, especially now that Kenny is AAA Mega Champion. The word is that AEW will be incorporating the belt into their storylines, which would indicate to me that there will be title defenses. If it were me I'd be bringing in guys like Vikingo, Taurus, Aerostar, Drago, Laredo Kid, Psycho Clown (another Cody favorite) and a few others to give Kenny a run for his money in title matches. But then again if it were me Kenny would be holding this Mega Championship for months and should only be losing it to either a) Fenix in a rematch, b) Pentagon, c) Psycho (my preferred option), d) a returning Rey Mysterio Jr. (contract is up in April!) or e) a debuting Rush. The latter, by the way, is coming to AAA inevitably so don't dismiss the possibility of Rush-Omega and definitely don't dismiss the possibility of Triplemania XXIV being headlined by the mask vs. hair match everyone has been waiting for.

    I'm such a mark for Taurus. I know there are tons of smaller guys just waiting to break out further in the US, with Vikingo likely at the top of the list, but there's something about Taurus that I look forward to even more.

    Holographic wrestling authority figures... nobody show this to WWE, we'll have Vince onscreen firing people into the next century!
