The CMLL International Gran Prix was an annual tournament held by the Mexican professional wrestling promotion Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), that was held from 1994 to 2008, although there was no tournament in 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2004. The tournament was inspired by New Japan Pro Wrestling's "International Wrestling Gran Prix" tournament in the 1980s. From 1994 until 1998 the Gran Prix was a single elimination tournament that featured a mixture of Mexican and international wrestlers, some who worked for CMLL regularly and some that were invited specifically for the tournament. From 2002 and on the format was changed to a torneo cibernetico, a 16-man match with one side representing Mexico and the other side being composed of "international" wrestlers. Two people have won the Gran Prix twice, Rayo de Jalisco, Jr. and Último Guerrero. The most recent Gran Prix was in 2008 where wrestlers from Total Nonstop Action Wrestling participated on the "International" side. TNA's Alex Shelley defeated Último Guerrero to win the 2008 Gran Prix.
