Mini Chessman (1967-2014)


AAA has announced that Mini Chessman, Valentin Aguilar Garcia, has passed away. He would’ve turned 47 next month. Mini Chessman’s wife had early posted on Facebook (mentioned here) that he was in the hospital due to a respiratory infection and it appears that illness took his life.

Mini Chessman was a veteran member of AAA’s mini division. He started out in AAA as Espectrito II before switching over to his most recent character in 2004. Mini Chessman was mostly a background character, a solid rudo and would make a few TV appearances a year while working more often on non-TV events. His last TV appearance was back in April on Fusion, and his last known in-ring match was the New Year’s Day show in Arena Lopez Mateos.

Mini Chessman is the third person who worked for AAA to pass away due to illness since October, following El Brazo and Jesus Nunez’s deaths.

  1. Just horrible news. He was very good. One of the guys who helped put Mascarita Dorada (Torito) on the map by being such a great base for him back when Dorada was super green. It was a shame when he got phased out of TV matches. I always suspected he was one of the Mini Psycho Circus guys but I guess not.

  2. Rather shocking news. And unbelievable that another death hits the AAA. He always seemed like a guy that would always appear on the odd taping and a guy that would always be around, Really sad to hear of his death, He was one of the better mini rudos in Mexico and always a guy that could make the tecnico look great. May he Rest In Peace.
