The EMLL 25th Anniversary Show was a professional wrestling major show event produced by Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre (EMLL) that took place on September 26, 1958 in Arena México, Mexico City, Mexico. The event commemorated the 25th anniversary of EMLL, which would become the oldest professional wrestling promotion in the world.[2] The Anniversary show is EMLL's biggest show of the year.


The event featured an undetermined number of professional wrestling matches with different wrestlers involved in pre-existing scripted feuds or storylines. Wrestlers portray either villains (referred to as Rudos in Mexico) or fan favorites (Técnicos in Mexico) as they compete in wrestling matches with pre-determined outcomes. Due to the nature of keeping mainly paper records of wrestling at the time no documentation has been found for some of the matches of the show.

In the first of only two documented matches the masked Espectro I ("Spectre") and Torbellino Blanco ("White Whirlwind") both put their masks on the line in a Lucha de Apuesta match. The Apuesta match is considered the ultimate "issue settler" and the most prestigious match type in Lucha Libre.[2] In this case the rudo Espectro I defeated Spainish born Torbellino Blanco, forcing him to remove his mask and reveal his birth name; Mariano Yugueros.[1][3][4][5] In the only other confirmed match Rolando Vera successfully defended the NWA World Middleweight Championship against Black Shadow in a best two-out-of three falls match, winning the second and third falls.[1][3][4][5][6]
