The AAA Tag titles will be defended on Dynamite this Saturday , which is convenient because the AEW champs also hold the AAA belts. Who will Lucha Bros be facing in Miami on Oct. 16? That’s a mystery...
We do know Rey Fenix & Penta El Zero M’s opponents are “friends” of Andrade El Idolo, who’s been involved in a program with the champs & PAC since arriving in AEW. Andrade is busy on social media hyping this weekend’s match, but he’s not giving too much away.
The former La Sombra is giving us plenty of Los Ingobernables-adjacent emojis though. And seeing as Andrade’s friend RUSH’s brothers were just set-up as future challengers for Fenix & Penta on this past Saturday’s AAA show, a lot of fans figure it will be Dragon Lee and Dralistico.
A potential snag to that theory is Lee’s Ring of Honor contract. ROH hasn’t sent anyone through the Forbidden Door to AEW in the past. But being more flexible on that point might help them re-sign RUSH when his contract is up later this year, and if Tony Khan agreed to let them use Andrade for a taping or two in the future? This would be a smart spot to join the alliance opposite WWE.
Or maybe that’s just what a lot of fans are telling themselves because they really want to see Lee & the former Mistico throw down with the Lucha Bros on national television? Whoever it is, they’ll be on a Saturday night Dynamite card with Bryan Danielson vs. Bobby Fish, and Malakai Black vs. Dante Martin.
Let us know who you think Andrade’s “close friends” will be.
