Saturday night’s AAA Triplemania XXVII event featured another sensational six-man tag team match furthering the storied rivalry between the Young Bucks and the Lucha Brothers, heading into their upcoming ladder match at AEW’s All Out pay-per-view.
In a rematch from last month’s AEW Fyter Fest live special, the Lucha Brothers and rising sensation Laredo Kid scored a much-needed victory in Mexico over Kenny Omega and the Bucks, collectively known as The Elite.
After the bout, an exhausted and defeated Kenny Omega thanked the Mexican fans before officially challenging Rey Fenix to a future match for the AAA Mega Heavyweight Championship, which the champ quickly accepted.
This is interesting, as Fenix’s “reign” with the title has become something of an inside joke among lucha libre fans, as he essentially won the title after an incredible rise to stardom over the past few years, but hasn’t defended it a single time since winning it at last year’s Triplemania.
It’s unknown exactly when that match will take place, but Omega did note that he would be returning to Mexico for it so it will be in AAA and not AEW. Fenix has his hands full heading into a AAA World Tag Team Championship defense at All Out against the Young Bucks, not to mention the upcoming AEW tag team tournament that he and Pentagon Jr. will likely be a part of.
