AEW has been working with numerous promotions since its inception back in 2019. That being said, AEW’s relationship with AAA is not going strong as of late. In fact, their issues also have to do with AAA giving a favor to WWE.
Tay Melo was booked for a World Mixed Tag Title match at the AAA Noche de Campeones event in Acapulco, Mexico. However, she was also booked for a tag team match on AEW Dynamite back in December last year.
Melo ended up pulling out of the title defense and competed on Dynamite instead. Due to this, AAA became very upset with AEW and they stripped Tay Melo and Sammy Guevara of their titles.
In fact, AAA is done putting titles on AEW talent. According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Newsletter, a lot of details regarding AEW’s current issues with AAA were revealed, including WWE’s involvement in the whole matter.
“Whether anything comes of this or not, the hope is to have either Kenny Omega or Kota Ibushi come in to challenge El Hijo del Vikingo for the AAA Mega title at one of the TripleMania shows.
Getting Omega is tricky because it has to come through AEW and there are issues there because of how the Dragon Lee & Dralistico win over FTR in Acapulco in December went down, with FTR losing and then immediately in the ring Dragon Lee saying he had signed with WWE, and WWE having a story ready for ESPN on Lee signing and getting footage of the scenario and releasing it on social media with Lee having beaten one of AEW’s top tag teams.
We will have to wait and see whether AEW and AAA will ever improve their relationship, as it seems unlikely at this point in time. Keep checking back with Ringside News for more on this story, and everything else going on in the pro wrestling world.
