Don Callis was attacked by a fan in the post-show press conference of AAA Triplemania XXXI: Tijuana event.
Kenny Omega faced El Hijo Del Vikingo at TripleMania XXXI night 2 but was unsuccessful in winning AAA Mega Championship. Don Callis said he would be in Vikingo’s corner during the match, but sent to the back by Konnan before match could start.
In the press conference after the show, Callis got his protege Konosuke Takeshita to attack Omega in a kayfabe situation as part of their ongoing rivalry. However, an enraged fan then attacked Callis also while the security was breaking up Takeshita and Omega.
