CMLL Bodybuilding Contest

CMLL has held an annual bodybuilding contest at Arena Mexico in since 2006. CMLL appears to have previously held these, though not as formally or regularly. The event is notable for being a rare CMLL event the promotion has remembered to run every year since it started.

The winners get a trophy and an undisclosed monetary prize.

CMLL's owner, Paco Alonso, originally made a rare public appearance at the event, handing out awards to the winners. Since around 2017, that presentation has been handled by supplement and bodybuilding sponsors of the competition.

CMLL originally valued good showings in the tournament, as winners often frequently got more attention from the programming department. That seemed to diminish during the era of Astral winning every year.

CMLL usually divides the luchadors up into five categories: minis, women, beginners, intermediate, and advanced. The criterion for entry in each male category is a bit of a mystery; minis frequently place in the non-mini categories, and the distinction between the different levels is never made clear.

Anyone who trains at the Arena Mexico gym is eligible to participate. Luchadors who do not wrestle for CMLL (or have yet to debut) are often included, especially in the beginner/student category.

The women's division always has the least participation and frequently has had less three or fewer women compete. CMLL seems to have few female trainees who are interested in participating. They definitely have fewer females in general. The domination of Dark Angel and Dalys la Caribena may have also reduced the incentive to participate.

The bodybuilding contest has been open to the public since 2009. It has been streamed by CMLL since around 2015.
