In January 2010 Mexican professional wrestling promotion Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) held five CMLL Super Viernes shows, all of which took 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 31 matches in total of which 15 were part of a tournament. 81 wrestlers in total appeared in matches during January, including two women and eleven Mini-Estrella. CMLL only held one match featuring the women's division, a torneo Cibernetico featuring the Mini-Etrellas and four Lightning matches in total. Último Guerrero and Héctor Garza are the only wrestlers to appear on four Super Vierens shows in January, no wrestler appeared on all five shows.
January started out slowly with the show on January 1 featuring very little storyline development as CMLL slowly began their 2010 "season". Storylines began to develop on January 8, 2010 with the main one being the building tension as Héctor Garza and his team defeated Último Guerrero's team. This match led to a singles match between the two the following week which Garza won. The win earned Garza a chance to wrestled for Último Guerrero's CMLL World Heavyweight Championship on January 22. January, the first title match of 2010. January also saw Pequeño Black Warrior win a Mini-EstrellaTorneo Cibernetico match over seven other wrestlers, making him the first Mini-Estrella to feature prominently on the Super Viernes show. While the start of January was light on storylines, the dominating storyline of the last half of January the Nacional Parejas Increibles tournament and the beginning of Místico's Rúdo ("Villain") turn while building a feud with Volador, Jr.
