Copa Antonio Peña.

The Torneo Antonio Pena is an annual AAA tournament. It's held at the annual Antonio Peña Memorial show, in late October. The first tournament was held in 2007, a year after Pena passed away. Both the format and the trophy given out has changed over the years.

For the first two years, Torneo Antonio Peña was a king of the mountain type match. Two wrestlers are randomly drawn to start the match. Wrestlers are eliminated in normal fashion, and the loser is replaced by the next random participant. The first tournament featured surprise/unannounced entrants.
