Kenny Omega and El Hijo del Vikingo are set to face off for the AAA Mega Championship.
At a press conference on Monday, Lucha Libre AAA announced that Omega vs. Vikingo for the AAA Mega Championship will take place at Triplemania Regia on Saturday, December 4. The show is taking place at Estadio de Beisbol Monterrey in Monterrey, Mexico.
Omega has held the AAA Mega Championship since defeating Fenix for the title in October 2019. He's since had title defenses against Jack Evans, Dragon Lee, Sammy Guevara, Laredo Kid, and Andrade El Idolo.
When asked about Vikingo after that title defense against Andrade, Omega called Vikingo one of the greatest high-flyers that he's ever seen. Omega compared him to wrestlers like Kota Ibushi, Will Ospreay, Ricochet, and Fenix, saying that Vikingo is the new special wrestler. Omega challenged Vikingo to stand in line and see if he measures up to the champ.
Cain Velasquez will be in action at Triplemania Regia, teaming with Psycho Clown & Pagano against Rey Escorpion, Black Taurus, and a surprise partner. The Lucha Brothers and Dragon Lee & Dralistico have also been announced for the show.
Luchablog notes that AAA's Dorian Roldan said that The Lucha Brothers and Lee & Dralistico may face AAA Tag Team Champions FTR at Triplemania Regia, but AAA is still working out the details of that with AEW.
