The CMLL 74th Anniversary Show was a professional wrestling major show event produced by Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) that took place on September 28, 2007 in Arena México, Mexico City, Mexico. The show consisted of six matches, with the main event being an Infierno en el Ring (Spanish for "Hell in the ring") Steel cage match, contested under Lucha de Apuestas rules, which mean the last man in the cage would be forced to unmask. The participants risking their mask were: Atlantis, Blue Panther, Lizmark Jr., Místico, Perro Aguayo Jr., Dr. Wagner Jr., Último Guerrero and Villano V. The event also featured five Six-man tag team matches, including an all-female match. The event commemorated the 74th anniversary of CMLL, the oldest professional wrestling promotion. in the world.[1] The anniversary show is CMLL's biggest show of the year, their Super Bowl event. The 74th anniversary show was transmitted live on Pay-Per-View, something only a few anniversary shows before this one had been.[2]

Production

Background

The 2007 CMLL Anniversary Shows commemorated the 74th anniversary of the Mexican professional wrestling company Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (Spanish for "World Wrestling Council"; CMLL) holding their first show on September 22, 1933 by promoter and founder Salvador Lutteroth.[3] CMLL, originally known as Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre ("Mexican Wrestling Company"; EMLL) it would change its name to Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre in 1992 to signal their departure from the National Wrestling Alliance.[4] With the sales of the Jim Crockett Promotions to Ted Turner in 1988 CMLL became the oldest, still-operating wrestling promotion in the world.[4] Over the years CMLL has on occasion held multiple shows to celebrate their anniversary but since 1977 the company has only held one annual show, which is considered the biggest show of the year, CMLL's equivalent of WWE's WrestleMania or their Super Bowl event. CMLL has held their Anniversary show at Arena México in Mexico City, Mexico since 1956, the year the building was completed, over time Arena México earned the nickname "The Cathedral of Lucha Libre" due to it hosting most of CMLL's major events since the building was completed.[4] Traditionally CMLL holds their major events on Friday Nights, replacing their regularly scheduled Super Viernes show.[4]

Storylines

The event featured six professional wrestling matches with different wrestlers involved in pre-existing scripted feuds, plots and storylines. Wrestlers were portrayed as either heels (referred to as rudos in Mexico, those that portray the "bad guys") or faces (técnicos in Mexico, the "good guy" characters) as they followed a series of tension-building events, which culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches.
