this article covers the Rey de Reyes Tournament; the event itself is listed under Rey de Reyes (Event)

Rey de Reyes is an annual AAA tournament. The winner has received a championship crown at times. Rarely, they defend the crown, but mostly it's just a trophy for winning the tournament.

Rey de Reyes was created as a 16 man tournament with four way matches. In recent years, it's changed forms multiple times. La Parka has won the most times, five, and is the reigning champion.

This year, the preliminary match was between the six previous winners:

Latin Lover (1997), Octagon (1998), Cibernetico (1999) versus Abismo Negro (2000), La Parka Jr. (2001), and Canek (2002). Abismo's team won, so the final was a singles match between La Parka Jr. and Abismo Negro. (It's unclear why Canek didn't advance.) La Parka Jr. won the singles match to take the title for a second time.

2004

Jeff Jarrett won the 2004 Rey de Reyes. There was no tournament this year, only a one on one match held on 2004.03.21 at Toreo de Cuatro Caminos, Naucalpan. Jeff Jarrett defeated Latin Lover in the tournament.

Reigning champion La Parka Jr. could not participate in the tournament due to a Abismo Negro related neck injury. At first, AAA did not consider this an 'official' Rey de Reyes, but Jarrett has been included consistently in recent years.

2005

The 8th edition of Rey de Reyes, held at el Centro de Convenciones, Madero, Tamaulipas on 2005.03.11, was won by La Parka Jr.. It was a six way match, including Latin Lover, Konnan, Jeff Jarrett, Chessman and Abismo Negro. Parka was awarded the victory not by defeating anyone, but because all (besides Latin Lover) attacked him and pulled off his mask, causing a disqualification.

2006

Vampiro, 9th winner

The 9th edition of Rey de Reyes, held at el Centro de Convenciones, Madero, Tamaulipas on March 10 was won by Vampiro. This year's edition was included four trio teams in one elimination match

  2. Guapo: Shocker, Scorpio Jr., Zumbido
  3. Sect Cibernetica: Cibernetico, Chessman, Muerte Cibernetica
  4. TNA: Konnan, Ron Killings, Samoa Joe

Wrestlers were individually eliminated as the match went on, leaving Vampiro and Cibernetico as the final two. La Parka Jr. intefered, hitting Cibernetico with a chair, helping his partner win the match.

2007

La Parka Jr., 10th winner

The 10th edition of Rey de Reyes was held at El Toreo De Naucalpan on March 18th. This year's edition was a six man elimination match. Wrestlers were grouped together, but it was essentially a one on one match with six wrestlers.

Parka, Abismo and Rhyno were the final three. Parka evaded Rhyno's Gore, which hit Abismo instead. Abismo was pinned and eliminated. Rhyno later charged Parka again, Parka moved again, and Rhyno ran into a chair. La Parka Jr. cradled him to win the championship and become a four time winner. He was given a sword as a trophy.
