Ric Flair appeared as the manager of Andrade, and put Konnan in the figure four leglock at AAA’s TripleMania show on 8/14 at Arena Ciudad in Mexico City.

Kenny Omega retained the AAA Mega heavyweight title over Andrade while Psycho Clown retained his mask in the main event over Rey Escorpion and the two shook hands to end their grudge match program with Escorpion getting his head shaved.

The show had other headlines, including Deonna Purrazzo becoming both the Impact and AAA women’s champion in a title vs. title match with Faby Apache, and not so surprising arrival of the New Generation Dinamitas, days after CMLL announced they were no longer with the promotion and were stripping them of their titles.

The Dinamitas arrived after the second match, the Copa Bardahl Royal Rumble style match. They played an updated version of the ELP classic “Touch and Go,” the same song from CMLL and the song the Original Dinamitas used dating back at least 30 years. When they came out, on the screen they were called the New Generation Dinamitas and the names used were Cuatrero & Sanson & Forastero, the same names they had used since becoming stars in CMLL. As it turns out they will be able to keep their names because they filed for ownership of the names in 2017.
