CMLL Torneo Gran Alternativa

CMLL Torneo Gran Alternativa

The Torneo Gran Alternativa (Spanish for "the Great Alternative Tournament") is an annual lucha libre tournament held by the Mexican professional wrestling promotion Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL). The tournament was not held in 1997, 2000 and 2002 and was held twice in 1996 and 1998. The most recent Gran Alternativa took place on April 13, 2012, in Arena Mexico, Mexico City, Mexico.

Up until 2010 the tournament has always consisted of eight tag teams in a one night, single elimination tournament, sometimes with a match to determine the seeds for the tournament. In 2010 it was announced that the field of competitors was doubled to 16 and the tournament would take place over three shows. The concept of the tournament is to team a young up-and-comer with a veteran and use the tournament to help showcase the younger talent, the young winner is often someone CMLL has plans for, although at times it has not always had the desired result. Último Guerrero is the only wrestler to have won the tournament three times, in 1999 as the rookie and in 2008 and 2011 as the veteran of the team. The tournament is always held in Arena Mexico in Mexico City, Mexico, the main arena of CMLL.
