Thunder Rosa to challenge for women's title at AAA Triplemania: Mexico City

Rosa will face Taya Valkyrie for the AAA Reina de Reinas Championship.

Thunder Rosa will be challenging for gold at Triplemania XXX: Mexico City.

At a press conference on Monday, Lucha Libre AAA announced that Rosa will challenge Taya Valkyrie for the Reina de Reinas Championship at Triplemania: Mexico City on Saturday, October 15. It's the third of three Triplemania shows this year celebrating the 30th edition of the event.

Rosa's AEW Women's World Championship won't be on the line in the match.

A promo from Rosa aired at the press conference. Rosa said she wants to bring the AAA Reina de Reinas title back to Mexican hands.

Luchablog notes that AAA explained the match as being "a Mexican who's been successful outside of Mexico [Rosa] vs a foreigner who found their career by coming to Mexico [Valkyrie]."

Valkyrie has been Reina de Reinas Champion since winning the title from Deonna Purrazzo at Impact Wrestling's Rebellion pay-per-view this April. This is Valkyrie's fourth time holding the title.

It was also announced at Monday's press conference that El Hijo del Vikingo will defend his AAA Mega Championship at Triplemania: Mexico City against an opponent who has yet to be determined. Lucha Libre AAA is asking fans to choose Vikingo's challenger, with Kenny Omega, Rey Fenix, and Psycho Clown mentioned as possibilities.

Omega has been out of action since last November after taking time off to have several surgeries for nagging injuries. He's hoping to return in time for AEW's All Out PPV this September.

There will be another press conference for Triplemania: Mexico City next month. Here's the full list of what's been announced for the show thus far:

  • Mask vs. mask match (Ruleta de la Muerte finals): Pentagon Jr. vs. Villano IV
  • AAA Reina de Reinas Champion Taya Valkyrie defends against Thunder Rosa
  • AAA Mega Champion El Hijo del Vikingo defends against TBD
