Current Champion

Johnny Mundo, 9th Champion

Johnny Mundo is the current champion. At the Rey de Reyes, 2017 event Johnny faced Texano Jr. & Hijo del Fantasma in a triple threat match where Johnny's AAA Latin American Championship, Texano's AAA World Heavyweight Championship & Hijo del Fantasma's AAA World Cruiserweight Championship were all on the line. Johnny won the match and thus won all the titles.

History of Championship

As part of AAA's continuing evolution towards a US style promotion, and as a clear nod to the WCW title of the same division, this championships 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 home country. No specific weight limit has ever been emphasized for this division.

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 teleivsion 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.
