Former WWE Star To Replace Kenny Omega At TripleMania Regia - TheSportster

Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide has revealed that Samuray Del Sol will replace Kenny Omega in the AAA Mega Championship match at TripleMania Regia 2 on December 4.

AEW star Kenny Omega relinquished the AAA Mega Championship on November 22 as he is set to undergo multiple surgeries on a variety of ailments from which he has reportedly been suffering for some time. Omega was scheduled to defend the title against Hijo del Vikingo at Estadio de Béisbol Monterrey on December 4, but his leave of absence forced AAA to make some changes.

Former WWE Superstar Samuray Del Sol is set to replace Omega, but AAA appeared to confirm that the match has been changed to a Five-way match for the vacant AAA Mega Championship with the remaining three competitors yet to be announced.

In WWE, Samuray Del Sol performed under the name Kalisto. He signed with the company in 2013 and would go on to hold the US Championship, the tag team championship, and the Cruiserweight Championship throughout his WWE tenure.

The luchador was released by WWE on April 15 along with several of his now-former colleagues. He made his AEW debut on November 4 when teamed up with AAA's Aero Star to take on FTR for FTR's AAA Tag Team Titles. Interestingly, FTR will defend the AAA Tag Team Championship against their AEW colleagues The Lucha Bros at TripleMania Regia 2.

Kenny Omega became AAA Mega Champion when he defeated his AEW colleague Rey Fenix on October 19, 2019, at AAA's Heroes Inmortales 13 event in the Coliseo La Concordia in Orizaba, Veracruz, Mexico. Despite being champ for over two years, Omega only defended the title five times, most recently against Andrade El Idolo TripleMania 29 back in August.
