The AAA Latin American Championship ("Campeonato Latinoamericano AAA" in Spanish) is a professional wrestling championship promoted by the Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide (AAA) promotion in Mexico. The championship is generally contested in professional wrestling matches, in which participants execute scripted finishes rather than contend in direct competition.

The title was first announced on May 18, 2011, as part of a storyline, where wrestlers from American promotion Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) invaded AAA. It was revealed that on June 18 at Triplemanía XIX AAA's Dr. Wagner Jr. would face TNA's Rob Van Dam for the newly created AAA Latin American Championship. No qualification matches took place prior to the match.[3][4] Wagner went on to defeat Van Dam in the main event of Triplemanía XIX to become the first champion.[5] The physical belt was designed and crafted by All Star Championship Belts.[6] There have been seven reigns shared among seven wrestlers. Johnny Mundo is the current champion, having defeated Pentagón Jr. on August 28, 2016 at Triplemanía XXIV.[1]
