The EMLL 19th Anniversary Show was a professional wrestling major show event produced by Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre (EMLL) that took place on September 26, 1952 in Arena Coliseo, Mexico City, Mexico. The event commemorated the 19th 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 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.

The only verified match on the show had Bobby Bonales defend his NWA World Welterweight Championship against El Santo. The match up between the two was a classic feud that actually started many years earlier and had seen Santo defeat Bonales in two Luchas de Apuestas or bet matches, to have Bonales shaved bald in 1943 as part of the EMLL 10th Anniversary Show and again in 1944.[3][4] On this night El Santo once again came out on top, winning the World Welterweight Championship in the process.[1][5][6][7][8]


El Santo would hold and defend the NWA World Welterweight Championship until the following year's EMLL 20th Anniversary Show where he was defeated for the title by his most persistent rival Blue Demon as a part of a long running storyline feud between El Santo and Blue Demon and Black Shadow.[8]
