Wikipedia article of the day for November 21, 2016

The Wikipedia article of the day for November 21, 2016 is CMLL World Light Heavyweight Championship.
The CMLL World Light Heavyweight Championship (Campeonato Mundial Semi Completo de CMLL in Spanish) is a professional wrestling world heavyweight championship promoted by Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) since 1991. As with other professional wrestling championships, it is not an actual competition, but is won according to a scripted ending to a match, and sometimes awarded to a wrestler because of a storyline. The light heavyweight division in Mexico ranges between 92 kg (203 lb) and 97 kg (214 lb), but the weight limits are not always strictly adhered to. Because CMLL puts more emphasis on the lower weight classes, this division is considered more important in Mexico; the heavyweight division is considered the most important championship by most promotions outside of Mexico. The current CMLL World Light Heavyweight Champion in his first reign is La Máscara (pictured), who won it by defeating Ángel de Oro in April 2016. La Máscara is the 15th overall champion and the 13th wrestler to officially hold the championship. The title has been vacated only once since its creation in 1991.
