One match that has been heavily anticipated by fans was the showdown between superstars Andrade El Idolo and Kenny Omega at AAA’s TripleMania XXIX pay per view, a show that took place last night in Mexico City. The headlining bout saw Omega successfully retain the AAA Mega championship over El Idolo thanks to the help of a heel referee and a One-Winged Angel.

According to the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, the man formerly known as La Sombra was originally scheduled to defeat Omega to become the new Mega Champion but AEW, who has complete control over Omega’s outside bookings, asked AAA to delay the title change as the Cleaner had just suffered a loss to Christian Cage the night before on Rampage. It was not noted whether AAA or AEW plan to run Omega and El Idolo back, but Omega did tease on Twitter that the feud was not over.
This was only El Idolo’s second match since his WWE release several months ago, with his first being a victory over Matt Sydal at AEW Road Rager.
