AEW star and one of the promotion’s Exective Vice Presidents Kenny Omega is set to vacate the AAA Mega Championship.
Omega will be taking time away from the ring to undergo multiple surgeries now that he’s dropped the AEW World Championship to Adam Page.
As of this writing, Omega has held the AAA Mega Title for 765 days, but that’ll be coming to an end, and unfortunately he won’t make it to his scheduled defence against El Hijo Del Vikingo in December.
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez and Dave Meltzer said:
Alvarez: “Kenny Omega is vacating the AAA (Mega) Title.”
Meltzer: “Yeah, it may happen tomorrow (today, November 22). It’s supposed to happen any day now, and they will announce a new main event. I don’t know all the details. The definite rumour is that there’s gonna be a multi-person match, but I don’t know who’ll be in the match. But it should be out in the next couple of days. So that (match) is December 4 in Monterrey at the stadium, so it’s too bad he couldn’t do the match with Vikingo, but he couldn’t do the match with Vikingo. Which was his (Omega’s) handpicked match.”

Omega defended the AAA Mega Championship twice in AEW, first in a win over Jack Evans on Dark on November 20, 2019, and later a win over Sammy Guevara on the March 25, 2020 Dynamite.
Omega did have the belt with him on AEW TV for much of this year during his ‘belt collector’ run while he was also IMPACT World Champion.
His most recent defence was against AEW star Andrade El Idolo at AAA TripleMania on August 14.
