El Hijo del Vikingo is still AAA Mega Champion.
He defeated Kenny Omega in the main event of AAA Triplemania Tijuana on Saturday to retain his title. The finish saw Vikingo hit a poisonrana from the turnbuckle and a 630 senton to score a clean victory. The two hugged and Vikingo celebrated in the ring to end the show.
Don Callis had originally been scheduled to be in Vikingo's corner for the match. However, before the bout could get underway, Konnan came out and ordered Callis to leave the ringside area.
The head-to-head series between the two is now tied 1-1. Omega defeated Vikingo on the 3/22 AEW Dynamite earlier this year in a match our own Dave Meltzer rated five stars.
Vikingo vs. Omega in AAA was originally scheduled to take place at Triplemanía Regia II on December 4, 2021 during Omega's reign with the Mega Championship. However, Omega announced just weeks beforehand that he was pulling out of the show and vacating the title due to an accumulation of injuries.
Also on Saturday's show from Tijuana, the Guerra de Rivalidades tournament match had an interesting finish. Rush, who seemingly quit the promotion last month, teamed with LA Park against Sam Adonis and Psycho Clown. The match was ultimately ruled a draw after both Adonis and Rush scored pins. Since the stipulation had been the losing team would face each other on August 12 in a mask vs. hair match, now they will all meet in a four-way match on that show.
QT Marshall and Pentagon Jr. had a bloody ambulance match. The finish saw Aaron Solo spray Penta with a fire extinguisher, allowing Marshall to hit his opponent with a light tube and a cutter before locking him in the ambulance.
Former UFC Flyweight Champion Brandon Moreno was in the corner of Team Baja despite suffering a broken hand in his loss to Alexandre Pantoja at UFC 290. He got involved in the finish by locking Daga in an arm bar.
Former Mega Champion Texano Jr. returned to the promotion for the first time in more than two years as well. He came out wearing a mask with Taurus and attacked Pagano. After unmasking, Texano cut a promo saying he and Taurus are the new Mercenarios and he was behind the recent attacks on Pagano.
