Dave Meltzer mentioned on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that after the AEW World Title Match between AEW World Champion Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega during next week’s “Winter Is Coming” episode of AEW Dynamite. “The Cleaner” Kenny Omega is set to defend his AAA Mega Championship against Laredo Kid at AAA’s Triplemania XXVIII Event on December 12th.
Meltzer then mentioned that as of this past Wednesday, the Omega-Kid Match in Mexico City “is still on” and Omega will be heading to Mexico to defend the championship he won last October by defeating Rey Fenix at Lucha Libre AAA World Wide Heroes Inmortales XIII Event.
Meltzer also said that there is a possibility “that could change tomorrow” or “even on the day of the show” due to the travel restrictions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, reports mention that Omega is considered to be cleared to travel to Mexico City and wrestle for AAA at an empty arena show in Azcapotzalco.
If Kenny Omega becomes the brand-new AEW World Champion next week on Dynamite, then he will be in the exact same situation the current AEW World Champion is, wherein he holds both the AEW World Title and the IWGP United States Title, but is unable to defend the IWGP US Title due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
It was also noted that since it is possible for championship titles to change hands via DQ in Mexico, Omega could drop his AAA Mega Title without even getting pinned or submitted.
It was also mentioned by Dave Meltzer that AEW President and CEO Tony Khan would not be against Kenny Omega losing his AAA Mega Title via DQ as it is considered highly unlikely for the AEW World Champion to lose a match for another company and if Omega does not defeat Moxley, he could potentially lose to Laredo Kid.
Lastly, Dave Meltzer mentioned that since AAA only wants Omega to appear a certain number of times, they might make him retain his title, and if that is the case, then it is likely Kenny Omega becomes the brand-new AEW World Champion next week on Dynamite.
