Trofeo Victoria 2016

The Trofeo Victoria 2016 was disputed in a Battle Royal-style match between members of teams who were eliminated on first round of tournament. The rules of the match were announced as an initial four way match with one member of every team at start of the match. When a wrestler is eliminated, another member of his team will be added to the match. The match will continue until two wrestlers left, and those wrestlers will face off in a one fall match to determine the winner. Mil Muertes (Team Rest Of The World) defeated Tyrus (Team TNA) to win the match and the trophy.[7]
