The champions at the time were: Pierroth (Jr.), Villano III, Villano IV & Villano V. Los Villanos left AAA for Promo Azteca in the fall of 1996 while Pierroth Jr. followed in June of 1997. At the time, AAA had a large amount of stables and thus a tournament was formed to crown new champions. The 8 teams entered were as follows:
