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, it seems Khan recently held a meeting to repair AEW and AAA’s strained relationship.

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 was done putting titles on AEW talent. Over the last few months, rumors of tension between AEW and AAA have circulated due to Dragon Lee defeating AEW’s FTR for the AAA Tag Team Championship in December and then publicly announcing his signing with WWE.

However, it appears that the relationship between the promotions is on the mend, with Christopher Daniels scheduled to participate in the AAA Lucha Libre World Cup. This move suggests that the companies have mended their relationship, and Vikingo isn’t the only wrestler who will be crossing between the promotions.

While speaking to Wrestling Inc, Christopher Daniels, who serves as the head of talent relations for AEW, revealed that Tony Khan held a meeting in order to repair AEW and AAA’s strained relationship.

“Actually, I feel like it’s in a good position right now. Konnan and Tony Khan recently had a meeting and tried to suss all that out, and I feel like we’re in a good position. We’re in a good place right now, obviously, because I’m going to AAA to wrestle. So yeah, I feel like whatever miscommunications or misunderstandings, whatever that was, I feel like that’s in the past and we’re going to move forward and not dwell on that and try and be available. Each promotion is trying to be available for the other as its schedule permits.”

AEW recently announced that Kenny Omega will face the debuting AAA Mega Champion El Hijo del Vikingo on the upcoming episode of AEW Dynamite. This announcement led to many fans criticizing the lack of story around the match. Tony Khan refused to accept any form of criticism online and simply could not let go of it. Regardless, it is good to see that AEW and AAA’s relationship is better now.

What’s your take on what Tony Khan did? Are you glad about this outcome? Sound off in the comments!
