On Saturday (May 1), Andrade landed in AAA and quickly challenged their Mega Champion. That would be one Kenneth Omega, who last defended the belt at last December’s pandemic delayed Triplemania show.
El Idoló aims to bring the title back to Mexico, and he wants to do it at this year’s Triplemania XXIX. While it hasn’t been confirmed, it’s believed AAA will try to get back on schedule and run their biggest show of the year in August.
That’s around the time of AEW’s marquee event, All Out (the 2021 edition should take place on Sun., Sept. 5). So it’s understandable Kenny needs to check his schedule:
I’m a busy guy, give me some time to think about it. https://t.co/HlnWxxjJt0— Kenny Omega (@KennyOmegamanX) May 3, 2021
Meanwhile, across the Pacific, Switchblade Jay White made history at today’s Wrestling Dontaku event. The former IWGP Heavyweight, Intercontinental, and United States champion defeated Hiroshi Tanahashi to claim the NEVER Openweight title.
He celebrated the win by throwing a jab at Omega, and the nickname the AAA, AEW & Impact champ’s given himself.
There’s already heat between the current iteration of the Bullet Club, led by White, and Omega’s band of Biz Cliz expatriates. Switchblade vs. Omega is the logical headliner for a war between New Japan’s group and the AEW/Impact-straddling Elite.
Buckle up, scripted fight fans.
