After EMLL left the NWA and became CMLL in 1991, they created promotion based championships for many weight divisions and teams sizes. Tournaments were held to determine champions in the years following the CMLL name change, with the CMLL World Trios Championship one of the first to be filled.

The tournament to decide champions was held in Arena Mexico over five Fridays, from 1991.11.08 to 1991.11.22. Before the quarterfinals, there was a captains battle royale to determine seeding for that round. Before the semifinals, there was a captians elimination match, where the two surviving winners' teams faced each other, and same with the losers. Atlantis and Octagon teamed to face Brazo de Oro and Satanico, with Brazo de Oro pinning Octagon and Atlantis defeating Satanico, setting up the Brazos/Atlantis and Octagon/Infernales matchups.

Teams included in the initial tournament were
