Lucha Libre AAA today announced at a press conference that Kenny Omega and Andrade will collide at AAA’s biggest event, TripleMania XXIX, on August 14, with Omega’s AAA Mega Championship on the line. The show will take place in front of a limited capacity of fans in Mexico City’s Arena Ciudad de Mexico Arena, marking the first AAA show with fans in over a year.
“This belt, the one that represents Lucha Libre, that you so proudly represent, it’s always going to be around my waist,” Omega said in a pre-recorded statement. “And you should be thankful. Because not only do I represent Lucha Libre, I represent all pro wrestling. That’s not going to change any time soon. Send your best at me, send Andrade. The dream match is going to happen. Andrade vs. Kenny Omega, TripleMania. I’ll see you there.”
This will be a first-time encounter between Omega and Andrade, and Omega’s fifth defence of the title. For Andrade, this will be his first-ever match for AAA. The former NXT Champion began his career working for AAA’s rival promotion, Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) before joining WWE in the fall of 2015.
Two other matches were announced for TripleMania. The main event will feature Psycho Clown taking on Rey Escorpion in a mask vs. hair match. Elsewhere Impact Wrestling’s Deonna Purrazzo will put her Impact Knockout’s Championship on the line against Faby Apache, who in turn will put her AAA Reina de Reinas Championship on the line as well.
