In April 2010 Mexican professional wrestling promotion Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) will hold a total of five CMLL Super Viernes shows, all of which will take place Arena México on Friday nights. CMLL did not hold any special events on Fridays that would force a cancellation such as a Pay-Per-View (PPV). Some of the matches from Super Viernes are taped for CMLL's weekly shows that air in Mexico the week following the Super Viernes show. Super Viernes often features storyline feud between two wrestlers or group of wrestlers that develop from week to week, often coming to a conclusion at a major CMLL event or in a match on Friday nights between the individuals. In total Super Viernes featured 46 matches with 82 wrestlers appearing in matches during April. This includes six women and seven Mini-Estrellas. CMLL only held one match featuring the women's division, two featuring the Mini-Etrellas and five Lightning matches. Místico is only wrestler to appear on all five Super Vierens shows in April.
After being a rúdo since late January, 2010 April saw a change of heart by Místico. After losing a match he simply announced that he was tired of being a rúdo and was returning to the técnico (good guy) side from now on. During his appearance as a técnico Místico used rúdo tactics to win the match which cast doubts on where his allegiance truly lies. In subsequent weeks Místico has appeared working more and more as a técnico again, although his feud with Volador, Jr. has flared up again, just not on Super Viernes. After building the feud since later January the storyline between Mini-EstrellasBracito de Oro and Pequeño Black Warrior reached it's cressendo on April 30, 2010 where Pequeño Black Warrior defeated Bracito de Oro, two falls to one, in a Lucha de Apuesta, mask vs. mask match, forcing Bracito de Oro to unmask after the match.
In another development Héctor Garza appeared to be turning on his teammates El Hijo del Fantasma and La Máscara (who jointly hold the CMLL World Trios Championship). During one show he walked out on his partners after a misunderstanding and he teamed up with a rúdo for the Gran Alternativa. His actions were followed by insincere claims of still being a técnico. April also saw host to the 2010 Torneo Gran Alternativa ("Great Alternative tournament"). Unlike previous tournaments this years Gran Alternativa was split out over three days and featured 16 teams instead of the usual 8 teams. On April 16, 2010 the team of Héctor Garza and Pólvora defeated Diamante and La Sombra to qualify for the final match. On April 23, Delta and Volador, Jr. defeated Puma King and Último Guerrero to become the second team to qualify for the finals. On April 30, 2010 Pólvora and Héctor Garza won the 2010 Gran Alternativa.
