Occidente Welterweight Tournament, 2013

From Luchawiki

The Occidente Welterweight Championship was inactive for 2012. Champion Metal Blanco changed his identity to Triton in late 2011. For a time, he was presented as a new character, but CMLL eventually acknowledged his former character and continue to refer to him as champion. Triton, who had won the belt when he was still wrestling exclusively in Guadalajara but was now a Mexico City based wrestler, made no defenses of the championship after changing his name.

The exact same hold up was also taking place with the Palacio Negro/Titan and the Occidente Middleweight Championship. The Guadalajara promoters vacated and re-filled that championship late 2012, and a tournament for the Welterweight title took place a few months later.

The tournament took place over three weeks. The first two weeks were eight luchaor ciberneticos, with the winners facing off on the third week. All matches took place in Arena Coliseo Guadalajara.
