Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) announced today that their big event on Friday, Homenaje a Dos Leyendas, has been suspended. The show was scheduled to pay homage to CMLL founder and owner, Salvador Lutteroth and Sangre Chicana.
The CMLL press-release stated the following:
The Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre [CMLL] and Promotions Mexico, Coliseum and Revolution S.C. It informs that the functions of Saturday 14, Sunday 15 and Tuesday 17 of March are canceled, in the Arenas Coliseo and México, respectively.
Regarding the Tribute to Two Legends[Homenaje a Dos Leyendas], it is suspended until further notice, so the public that has bought your ticket can keep it and it will be respected for the date it is made, otherwise, you can request a refund.
This, in follow-up to the prevention measures that are being carried out in Mexico City and in the different states of the country.
Updates, changes or resumption, we will be informing you through www.cmll.com and in the official social networks of the CMLL.
Homenaje a Dos Leyendas always honors the original founder, Salvador Lutteroth, each year. Moreover, a Mexican wrestling legend is selected, to make it a two-man homage. This year, the turn was for Sangre Chicana. The latter is a CMLL and AAA legend. His rivalry with Perro Aguayo and even Vampiro is legendary. He won multiple “Luchas de Apuestas” while winning the: CMLL World Trios Championship, Mexican National Middleweight Championship, Mexican National Tag Team Championship, NWA International Junior Heavyweight Championship, among others.
This year’s main event wasn’t big. It features the rising star of CMLL, Barbaro Cavernario against the veteran, El Felino. Everybody knows that Cavernario is going to win that hair vs. hair match. The young luchador has been their main, young star, after the exits of Rush and Dragon Lee.
Arguably, the best match of the night was the CMLL World Trios Championship Match. It features Carístico, Valiente, and Volador Jr. vs Los Guerreros Laguneros (Euforia, Gran Guerrero, and Último Guerrero). The latter trio are the champions. Guerrero is the top guy right now for CMLL and has held the trios championship for quite a while (two combine reigns of almost 700 days).
Other matches scheduled for the show were: Dalys la Caribeña (C) vs. Princesa Sugehit for the Japanese Women’s title, Ángel de Oro, Flip Gordon, & Niebla Roja vs. Nueva Generacion Dinamitas (El Cuatrero, Forastero, & Sansón) and Diamante Azul, Stuka Jr., & Titán vs. Mephisto, Negro Casas, & El Terrible.
