The EMLL 31st Anniversary Show was a professional wrestling major show event produced by Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre (EMLL) that took place on September 25, 1964 in Arena México, Mexico City, Mexico. The event commemorated the 31st 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, their Super Bowl event.


The event featured five 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.

Of the five matches on the show, documentation of participants and results exist for only two of them. In the first of the matches Karloff Lagarde sought to win the NWA World Welterweight Championship for the second time as he fought against the popular moviestar and champion Huracán Ramírez in a two out of three falls match. Lagarde defeated Huracán Ramírez in a high paced match to regain the championship he had lost to Ramirez only months earlier.[1][3][4][5][6] The other confirmed match saw Rayo de Jalisco defeat NWA World Middleweight Champion Benny Galant to win the title for a second time.[1][3][4][5][7]


Rayo de Jalisco held the title until April 4, 1963 where he was defeated by René Guajardo, he would hold the title for a third time later in his career.[7]
