Kenny Omega was able to retain AAA Mega Championship against Andrade El Idolo at AAA TripleMania XXIX.
As he came out for his title defense, Omega was flanked by WCW and IMPACT Wrestling legend Konnan as he came out. Konnan teased a business proposal to Omega a few weeks ago at AEW Dynamite.
On the other hand, Andrade came out with WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair. Flair asked and got his release from WWE earlier this month to pursue other interests.
During the final moments of the match, Omega and Konnan knocked out the referee. Ric Flair then got involved in the action and went on to hit his signature chops to Omega. Andrade and Flair also put on double-figure-four leg lock on Omega and Konnan.
The finish came after the referee revived, but Konnan ran another distraction for Omega to run over Andrade with the title belt. Omega hit One-Winged Angel to pin Andrade and retain the title.
Omega still holds both AAA Mega Championship and AEW World Championship. He lost the IMPACT World Championship to Christian Cage at AEW Rampage debut yesterday. Omega is booked to defend the AEW World title against Cage at AEW All Out 2021 on 5 September.
In other results, IMPACT Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo defeated Faby Apache to add AAA Reina de Reinas Championship in her cabinet. The finish came after Apache took down the rogue referee. Purrazzo caught her with a piledriver with this distraction and went on to lock in a double armbar for the win.
AEW Star Brian Cage was the surprise entrant in the AAA Tag Team Championship match to team up with Black Taurus. The Lucha Bros – Rey Fenix & Pentagon Jr retained the title.
