Homenaje a Salvador Lutteroth 1996 (Spanish for "Homage to Salvador Lutteroth") was a professional wrestling major show event produced by Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), which took place on March 22, 1996 in Arena México, Mexico City, Mexico. The event was to honor and remember CMLL founder Salvador Lutteroth who died in March 1987. The annual March event would later be renamed Homenaje a Dos Leyendas as CMLL honored both Lutteroth and another retired or deceased wrestler. The main event was a singles match between Rambo defeated El Brazo under Luchas de Apuesta rules, which meant that both men their hair on the outcome of the match and would have to be shaved bald if they lost the match. The show also featured a Six-man "Lucha Libre rules" tag team match for the CMLL World Trios Championship as champions Los Chacales ("The Jackals"; Bestia Salvaje, Emilio Charles, Jr. and Sangre Chicana) defended against the team of Dos Caras, Héctor Garza and La Fiera. On the under card CMLL held the Torneo de Alto Rendimiento ("High Performance Tournament") an eight-man torneo cibernetico elimination match as well as at least one additional match.
The event featured at least four professional wrestling matches with different wrestlers involved in pre-existing scripted feuds or storylines. Wrestlers portray either villains (referred to as Rudos in Mexico) or fan favorites (Técnicos in Mexico) as they compete in wrestling matches with pre-determined outcomes. The show was the first show to officially be labeled as honoring CMLL founder Salvador Lutteroth although CMLL had regularly held shows in March dedicated to Lutteroth or other wrestlers who had died.
The new CMLL World Trios Champions would hold on to the titles until early 1997 when Héctor Garza and the Championship had to be vacated. A tournament to determine the new Trios champions took place on the following year's Homenaje a Salvador Lutteroth show.
