AAA World Minis Championship
History of Championship
AAA's minis division singles championship had been the Mexican National Minis Championship since the formation of the group. Faced with the prospect of losing the belt and his position, Mascarita Sagrada 2000 did not show for a scheduled title defense and jumped to CMLL in 2007. Sagrada 2000 is listed as the current champion, while AAA is believed to have possession of the physical belt.
AAA downplayed the minis division for over a year, then suddenly announced a tournament to decide a new champion. The tournament was mostly notable for how short the matches were, as shown on TV. All were under four minutes, and many were half of that. The tournament final, as part of Verano de Escandalo, 2008, was the only match to go a significant length. In the three way final, Mini Abismo Negro was able to defeat Octagoncito, but surprisingly was upset by Mini Charly Manson. Manson became the first champion.
Despite holding the belt for 15 months, Mini Charly Manson apparently defended the championship zero times. Manson suffered knee and nose injuries that kept him out of the ring for long periods of time. The minis division and championship was of little importance in AAA during this period, so there was no thought to taking the title off Manson while he was injured. Even when Manson was not hurt, AAA did not often use the minis on it's television shows.
AAA basically restarted the division at Guerra de Titanes 2009, holding a elimination match featuring most of the regular AAA minis. Mini Charly Manson came into the match with the belt, but was basically forced to defend against everyone at once. Mini Abismo Negro avenged the previous year's loss, defeating Mini Charly Manson directly during the elimination match, and beating Octagoncito once again to win the championship match.
Octagoncito won the title in a Table, Ladders and Chairs match at TripleMania XVIII defeating former champion Mini Abismo Negro as well as Mini Charly Manson, Mascarita Divina, Mini Histeria, Mascarita Sagrada, Mini Psicosis, Mini Chessman and La Parkita. Octagoncito became the first man to actively and successfully defend this championship, both on TV tapings and live shows.
Octagoncito's title reign was defined by the rudo Mini Vipers all trying to take the title away to prove which one of them was the best. Octagoncito turned back Mini Histeria and Mini Abismo, but was surprisingly defeated by Mini Psicosis, costing him the championship. This was the first title change in a singles match.
