Mexico’s AAA promotion is setting up some big interpromotional matches.
Andrade El Idolo showed up during their Rey De Reyes show over the weekend. In a prerecorded video, he challenged Kenny Omega to defend the AAA Mega Championship against him...at TripleMania. A date for that show has not been announced.
Also at Rey De Reyes, Impact Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo appeared in person...and she challenged AAA’s new women’s champ Faby Apache to a “winner takes all” Title vs. Title Match...also at TripleMania.
Apache had just won the vacant title in a multi-woman match. A surprise entrant was a recast version of Sexy Star - now portrayed by Hija de Gatubela.
Laredo Kid won the Rey De Reyes itself. Black Taurus won the vacant AAA Latin American Championship. And we saw the debut of a new stable called La Empresa - Puma King, Diamante Azul and Sam Adonis - posing as invaders from rival promotion, CMLL.
Not much announced for tonight’s Raw as of Sunday night.
We do know the Raw Tag Team Champions AJ Styles & Omos are promising to appear on the show. It’ll be their first time on Raw since they won the belts back at WrestleMania.
Daniel Bryan’s profile on WWE.com was moved to the “alumni” section over the weekend. Bryan is now BANISHED from SmackDown after he lost a Universal Title match to Roman Reigns on Friday.
