History of Championship

As part of AAA's evolution towards a US-style promotion, and as a nod to the WCW title of the same division, this championship was created in 2009 to serve as a crown for those not big enough to be in contention for the AAA World Heavyweight Championship. Unlike the Mexican National championships previously used in this role all wrestlers are eligible for this championship regardless of the home country. No specific weight limit has ever been emphasized for this division, just the broad idea there must be one.

AAA held a two stage, thirteen man tournament to determine the first champion. As tends to happen in AAA tournaments, it was complicated more than most, though there was a greater emphasis on explaining the tournament. As with the previous tournament for the AAA minis championship, the final was a three-way, elimination match.

The title was irregularly defended over the next five years, frequently going many months without being exposed on television and often used as a way just to get a lot of midcarders onto a show. There were individual feuds teased, but singles matches were much more likely to take place on indy appearances.

In the lead up to TripleMania XXII, AAA declared both this championship and the AAA Fusion Championship would be unified into a new AAA World Cruiserweight Championship. Despite some confusion (mostly on this wiki's part), this cruiserweight championship is considered to have an unbroken lineage - it's being treated as the same championship, just a new belt.

Ignored MLW Title Change

Lio Rush defeated Laredo Kid in a champion versus champion match also including the MLW Middleweight Championship on MLW TV in 2021. The match is believed to be taped on or around October 21st, 2020, and aired on February 10, 2021. AAA acknowledged the title change at the time the match aired, then reverted to referring to Laredo Kid as champion without ever referencing the title change on TV. MLW continued to reference Lio Rush as champion in pre-taped episodes. On the May 5th, 2021 episode of MLW Fusion, the promotion explained Laredo Kid kept the belt and believed he was still champion due to what he believed was Lio Rush tapping out during the match. The announcers framed this as a dubious reason; it was also appeared to be retcon explanation to accommodate AAA deciding not to acknowledge the title change.
