The LLA Azteca Championship (Campeonato Azteca de LLA in Spanish) was a professional wrestling championship promoted by Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) and Lucha Libre Azteca (LLA) between 2009 and 2013. This championship had no weight limit nor any other limits on who could become champion. It was sponsored by TV Azteca Noreste, that televised all championship matches and covered professional wrestling in Monterrey, Nuevo León on a weekly basis. All championship matches except for the tournament to determine the first champion was held under "Three way" rules, with three wrestlers in the ring at the same time. No champion was able to successfully defend the championship as it changed hands each time CMLL promoted a title match at Gimnasio Nuevo León. As a professional wrestling championship, it was not won through athletic competition; it was instead won and lost via a scripted ending to a match. The championship was vacated on May 2, 2013 after a match between then champion Místico and challengers La Sombra and Volador, Jr. ended in a time limit draw. The title was announced as held up and CMLL has not used the championship since.
The championship was created in late 2009 as CMLL announced a one-night tournament to determine the first Azteca champion. The tournament took place on December 19 and started out with two six-man tag team matches to reduce the field from 12 to 6. Héctor Garza, Místico and Shocker defeated La Peste Negra (Negro Casas, El Felino and Mr. Niebla) while Los Guerreros de la Atlantida (Atlantis, Rey Bucanero and Último Guerrero) defeated Los Hijos del Averno (Averno, Ephesto and Mephisto) to advance to the semi-finals. The semi-final match was a torneo cibernetico elimination match that saw Atlantis and Último Guerrero as the final two survivors. In the end Último Guerrero pinned his tag team partner Averno to become the first LLA Azteca Champion.
The longest reigning champion was Último Guerrero who held the title for 234 days from December 19, 2009 to August 10, 2010. The youngest champion was Místico II, who was born in 1991 and won the title in September 2012 making him 19 or 20 years old at the time. The shortest reigning champion was Héctor Garza who held the title for 124 days from August 10, 2010 to December 12, 2010. Último Guerrero holds the record for most reigns, with two. The oldest champion was Atlantis who won at the age of 48 years and 75 days. The last champions was Místico II, who defeated Atlantis and Último Guerrero for the championship on September 30, 2012, in Monterrey, Nuevo León.
