Lucha World Cup, 2017
The Lucha World Cup 2017, is a professional wrestling trios tournament produced by Lucha Libre AAA World Wide (AAA). It was the third annual edition of the tournament. All matches will take place outside of Mexico for the first time. It will also be a 2v2 tag team tournament, instead of the usual trios format.
The match format was slightly changed. The original match is ten minute round. Should there not be a winner in that time, there will be a three minute singles match with a selected person from each team. If there is still not a decision, the other two wrestlers will fight. If there still is not a winner after both singles matches, five judges will select the winner.
