Kenny Omega and Andrade El Idolo threw down at TripleMania last night. It was a big event and Ric Flair was even there leading Andrade to the ring with Charlotte Flair backstage and kept off camera. The Cleaner won that match against Andrade, but that wasn’t the orginal plan.

This match came just one day after Kenny Omega lost the Impact World Title to Christian Cage during the debut episode of Rampage. Some thought that it was interesting that Andrade lost that TripleMania match, but he was originally supposed to win.

According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Kenny Omega was originally set to drop the AAA Mega Championship as well, but AEW stepped in. Since All Elite Wrestling controls Kenny Omega’s outside bookings, they asked AAA to hold off on the title switch since The Cleaner just lost on the night before.

“The backstory on this was that Andrade was originally going to win and 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, so AAA is working with them, so Kenny won, so that’s what happened.”


It appears that Andrade El Idolo and Kenny Omega might face off against each other again for the AAA Mega Championship down the line. The two could possibly have a much different conclusion to their match next time around. We’ll just have to see how things turn out at this rate, but Omega is still somewhat of a Belt Collector after his match in Mexico City.
