Verano de Escándalo (Spanish for "Summer of Scandal") is a major annual professional wrestling event in Mexico promoted by the Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) promotion. The show is as the name indicates a summer show, traditionally held in September. The first show was held in 1997 and since then thirteen events have been held, the more recent ones generally presented on Pay-Per-View while the early shows were shown as Television specials on the Televisa channel. Verano de Escándalo is the first major show by AAA after their annual Triplemanía event, and generally features storylines or feuds stemming from that event. The most recent event was the 2009 event, the thirteenth overall Verano de Escándalo in the series. The 2011 event is scheduled to take place on July 31, 2011, in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

Event History

The first Verano de Escándalo event was held on September 14, 1997 and has been held in September 11 out of 13 times, with one event in August (2003) and one in October (2004). All Verano de Escándalo shows have been held in Mexico, with most events, three, being held in Naucalpan, Mexico State. 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. The highest documentede attendance for a Verano de Escándalo show was 18,500 spectators for the 1997 event.

As of 2009, Verano de Escándalo has seen twelve Luchas de Apuestas, or bet fights. Two times a wrestler has been unmasked and ten times a wrestler or wrestlers have hair their hair shaved off as a result of losing the Apusta match. The event has hosted five championship matches, with four championships changing hands. Twice Verano de Escándalo has been host to the final match of a tournament to establish a new AAA Championship, in 2007 the first ever AAA World Heavyweight Champion was determined and in 2008 the first ever AAA World Mini-Estrella Champion was crowned. Of the thirteen main events to date five have been a Steel Cage Elimination match under Apuesta rules. Three times the main event has been a regular steel cage match and twice it's been a regular Lucha de Apuestas match.
