This past Saturday night’s AAA TripleMania XXIX Event saw AEW World Champion Kenny Omega, who is also the AAA Mega Champion, defend his AAA Mega Title against AEW Star Andrade El Idolo, with Ric Flair in Andrade’s corner and despite rumors and speculations that Omega will lose the AAA Mega Title, the AEW World Champion came out on top and retained his AAA Mega Championship.
Dave Meltzer noted on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that the original plan was for Andrade El Idolo to capture the AAA Mega Title from Kenny Omega, but since AEW reportedly has control over Kenny Omega’s match finishes in other wrestling companies, they asked AAA to hold off on the title change as it is believed that AEW doesn’t want Omega to work on Friday and Saturday nights.
This is what Dave Meltzer said:
“The backstory on this was that Andrade was originally going to win. AEW has control of Kenny’s finishes, they have to approve everything. They asked AAA to hold it off because I don’t think they wanted Kenny doing jobs on Friday and Saturday night. AAA is working with them, so Kenny won, that’s what happened.”
There is no word yet on when Kenny Omega will defend his AAA Mega Title next, but he is set to defend his AEW World Title against Christian Cage at All Out on September 5th in Chicago. Christian Cage won the IMPACT World Title from Kenny Omega last Friday night during the premiere episode of AEW Rampage.
