Hijo del Vikingo wins AAA Mega title at Triplemania Regia


Hijo del Vikingo is the new AAA Mega Champion.

Vikingo pinned Samuray del Sol in a five-way match to determine a new champion. Others in the match included Bandido and AEW's Bobby Fish and Jay Lethal. Vikingo won the match after pinning the former Kalisto with an inverted 450 splash. After the match, the rest of the technicos came out and celebrated with Vikingo to close out the show.

The match for Triplemania Regia was originally set to be a singles championship match between Vikingo and champion Kenny Omega for the title. However, Omega announced in a video that he would be unable to make it to Triplemania. Omega has taken time off following AEW’s Full Gear event last month in order to recover from various injuries. As a result, the multi-man match for the vacant title was set instead.

The other title match on the show saw AEW’s FTR successfully defend the AAA Tag Team titles against The Lucha Bros. (Pentagon Jr. and Fenix) in what ended up being a ladder match. Vickie Guerrero, who accompanied FTR to ringside, interfered by throwing powder at Pentagon Jr., who then fell off the ladder through a table, allowing Dax Harwood to grab the titles.
