The CMLL 65th Anniversary Show was a professional wrestling major show event produced by Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) in 1998. Different sources identify different shows in September as the actual Anniversary Show, either on September 11 or September 18, or possibly both as CMLL has held multiple shows to commemorate their anniversary in the past. Both shows took place in Arena Mexicoin Mexico City, Mexico. The September 11th show consisted of five matches in total, with one of the featured bouts being a Best two-out-of-three falls Lucha de Apuesta mask vs. mask match between Último Guerrero and Mr. Águila, the first Luchas de Apuestas match of Último Guerrero's career.[1][2][3] The September 18th show consisted of five matches, with the main event being a Six-man tag team match between the teams of Los Capos (Cien Caras and Máscara Año 2000) and Emilio Charles Jr. taking on three representatives of CMLL's main rúd (bad guy) group Los Boriquas, Kevin Quinn, El Boricua and Miguel Perez Jr. The semi-main event was a Lucha de Apuestas, hair vs. hair match between Ricky Santana and Apolo Dantés. In addition the show also featured an additional six-man tag match, an eight-man Atomicos match and a tag team match.[4] One or both of the evets commemorated the 65th anniversary of CMLL, the oldest professional wrestling promotion. in the world.[5] The Anniversary show is CMLL's biggest show of the year, their Super Bowl event.

Background[edit]

Both shows featured a number of 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.
