List Of CMLL World Middleweight Champions
The CMLL World Middleweight Championship (Campeonato Mundial Peso Medio de CMLL in Spanish) is a professional wrestling world championship promoted by the Mexican Lucha Libre wrestling-based promotion Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL). Being a professional wrestling championship, it is not won legitimately; it is instead won via a scripted ending to a match or awarded to a wrestler because of a storyline. The official definition of the middleweight weight class in Mexico is between 82 kg (180 lb) and 87 kg (190 lb), but is not always strictly enforced. Because Lucha Libre emphasizes the lower weight classes, this division is considered more important than the normally more prestigious heavyweight division of a promotion.
Blue Panther was officially recognized as the first champion in 1991, after winning a 16-man tournament. The championship's history was interrupted in 1992 with its only vacancy, when Blue Panther left CMLL to work for rival promotion Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA). El Dandy defeated Negro Casas in a singles match to decide the new champion. Dragón Rojo, Jr. is the current CMLL World Middleweight Champion, having defeated Jushin Liger for the championship on November 18, 2011. He is the 17th overall champion and the 13th person to hold the championship. El Dandy has had the most reigns as champion, with three; he also has the shortest reign, at 63 days. El Satánico's single championship reign is the longest reign, at 1,563 days.

“Did all the lets and bars appear
To every just or larger end,
Whence should come the trust and cheer?

Age finds place in the rear.
All wars are boyish, and are fought by boys,
The champions and enthusiasts of the state:”

And list to the love of these,

And he a winter breeze.”
