AAA Luchando Por un Sueño
In late summer 2006, AAA held a 12 person tournament over the course five TV tapings. The concept of Luchando Por un Sueño is similar to AAA's old Young Stars Tag Team Tournaments (1994, 1997), and CMLL annual Gran Alternativa with it's focus on undercard wrestlers. Unlike those tournament, participants weren't limited to 'young' wrestlers; experienced guys like Gran Apache were included, based on their usual card position (and likely to help carry the green young guys thru matches.)
The tournament itself kicked off on August 15, 2006, with a cibernetico to determine first round match ups. However, those match ups were already being advertised before the cibernetico took place. The first round was split over two tapings, and the three semifinal matches were all held on the September 3, 2006 TV taping.
