Horrible news to report tonight. The AAA version of La Parka passed away today at the age of 56. This is the one who had the serious accident in November during a dive outside the ring and never recovered. This is not the WCW La Parka, who is now LA Park, to be clear pic.twitter.com/5umEsL2ISS

La Parka was one of the first new friends I made in Mexico.
He was always smiling and had a great energy.
Our communication was limited with each other- but we’d always pull pranks on each other and make fun of ourselves together.
Please check out his work.
He loved the fans.

An absolutely bizarre day for wrestling has ended in tragedy.
R.I.P to AAA Lucha Libre star La Parka. (Not to be confused with former WCW wrestler L.A Park).
What an incredibly sad day.

Carmella Addresses Dating John Cena Rumor
WWE has a new program called ‘If It’s On The Internet,’ which basically asks talent if the stories on the internet are true. The first guest, Carmella, recently took part and admitted reports of her getting plastic surgery are real.
One person wanted to know if Carmella dated John Cena several years, which she quickly shot down the rumor.
“That is so far from the truth,” said Carmella. “I barely know John Cena. Because we both live in Tampa, people thought that we were dating? Yea, that’s completely fabricated.”
So, there you have it, Cena and Carmella never dated. In fact, it sounds like they barely knew each other.
Before, Carmella has been romantically linked to Big Cass and Corey Graves. Carmella and Big Cass were filmed together on Total Divas, but that relationship ended. Now, she still dates Corey Graves, which caused some controversy when they went public. As for Cena, he has moved passed the recently engaged Nikki Bella and is busy in Hollywood. Also, Cena is preparing for a major role at this year’s WrestleMania 36.
