|Homenaje a Dos Leyendas chronology|
Homenaje a Dos Leyendas 2011 (Spanish for "Homage to Two Legends") was an annual professional wrestling major event produced by Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), which took place on March 18, 2011 in Arena México, Mexico City, Mexico. The event paid tribute to CMLL founder Salvador Lutteroth who is always honored at Dos Leyendas and to Ángel Blanco, grandfather of then-CMLL wrestler Höruz. The main event of the show was a Tag team Lucha de Apuestas match with both teams risking their hair on the outcome of the match. The father / Son team of Brazo de Plata and Máximo faced off against El Terrible and El Texano Jr. In the semi-main event Averno defended the NWA World Historic Middleweight Championship against his rival Máscara Dorada.
Since 1996 the Mexican wrestling company Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (Spanish for "World Wrestling Council"; CMLL) has held a show in March each year to commemorate the passing of CMLL founder Salvador Lutteroth who died in March 1987. For the first three years the show paid homage to Lutteroth himself, from 1999 through 2004 the show paid homage to Lutteroth and El Santo, Mexico's most famous wrestler ever and from 2005 forward the show has paid homage to Lutteroth and a different leyenda ("Legend") each year, celebrating the career and accomplishments of past CMLL stars. Originally billed as Homenaje a Salvador Lutteroth, it has been held under the Homenaje a Dos Leyendas ("Homage to two legends") since 1999 and is the only show outside of CMLL's Anniversary shows that CMLL has presented every year since its inception. All Homenaje a Dos Leyendas shows have been held in Arena México in Mexico City, Mexico which is CMLL's main venue, its "home". Traditionally CMLL holds their major events on Friday Nights, which means the Homenaje a Dos Leyendas shows replace their regularly scheduled Super Viernes show. The 2011 show was the 16th overall Homenaje a Dos Leyendas show.
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.
Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) held a press conference on February 24, 2011 and announced the first match for the 2011 Homenaje a Dos Leyendas would be a "hair vs. hair" Tag team Lucha de Apuestas, or "Bet match", between Brazo de Plata and Máximo and the team of El Terrible and El Texano Jr.
