Guerra de Titanes (Spanish for "War of the Titans") is a major annual professional wrestling event in Mexico promoted by the Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) promotion. The show is the "End of year" show and is always traditionally held in December. The first show was held in 1997 and since then thirteen events have been held, the more recent ones presented on Pay-Per-View while the early shows were shown as Television specials on the Televisa channel.
The first Guerra de Titaneswas held on December 13, 1997 and was shown on Pay-Per-View (PPV), although later on it would be shown as television specials instead of PPV. Since 1991 Guerra de Titanes has been the "end of the year" show for AAA. All Guerra de Titanes shows have been held in Mexico, with most events (six) being held in Madero, Tamaulipas. The 2004 Guerra de Titanes event holds the record for the largest crowd, with 18,500 spectators. As is tradition with AAA major events the wrestlers compete inside a hexagonal wrestling ring and not the four sided ring the promotion uses for television events and House shows.
As of 2008 Guerra de Titanes has seen eight Luchas de Apuesta matches, with eight people having their hair shaved as a result of losing (El Picudo, Heavy Metal, May Flowers, Polvo de Estrellas, John Miller, Loren Higgins, Scorpio, Jr. and El Brazo) and one wrestler being unmasked (Jim Murrat). Guerra de Titanes has seen three successful title defenses and six title changes over the years. In 2003 the event hosted the "Televisa tag team tournament", the only year it was ever held.
