Don Callis is going to AAA to make sure Kenny Omega doesn’t win Mega Championship at Triplemania XXXI

Kenny Omega is set to challenge for the championship that he never lost in the main event of Triplemania XXXI Tijuana on July 15. Omega will do battle with Hijo del Vikingo for the AAA Mega Championship. Omega better beware, because the Invisible Hand is also coming to AAA. Don Callis wants to make sure Omega does not succeed.

Tony Schiavone wanted to get word with Vikingo to hype the AAA match when Callis walked out of the luchador’s dressing room. Callis claimed that he shared the secret recipe to beat Omega. Dandy Don the fashion icon noted how Omega is 0-4 in big matches since his betrayal. Callis wants to make sure the record becomes 0-5 on Saturday night. The Invisible Hand will be coming to Tijuana to help Vikingo.

This is an interesting development. I’m really curious how AAA manages to craft this story with Callis’ presence at Triplemania. In general, all foreigners are bad guys when visiting AAA in Mexico. Of course Omega will receive some support since he is the god of professional wrestling, but he is clearly the heel in this situation against the popular babyface Vikingo.

Callis has no current history with Vikingo on screen for AAA, so it will appear odd that he’s suddenly palling around with the champ on this evening. And then there are the crossover alignments for the AEW storyline. Does this imply Vikingo would be turning heel on screen in AEW? Will Konosuke Takeshita be in Tijuana to help Callis make sure Omega loses? Are AAA fans even aware of all these ramifications revolving around the AEW story?

Intrigue is abound.
