Kenny Omega Officially Vacates AAA Mega Championship
A record-breaking run comes to an end
AAA have confirmed that the AAA Mega Championship has officially been vacated.
AAA President Dorian Roldan announced on Twitter that Kenny Omega has vacated the AAA Mega Championship 'due to injury and surgery issues'.
Omega had been scheduled to defend the Title against El Hijo del Vikingo at AAA TripleMania Regia on December 4, and Roldan has confirmed that Vikingo will retain his spot as the number one contender for the Championship.
Omega himself cut a video promo on the decision to vacate the Championship, saying in a clip shared by AAA that the Promotion had decided to take the strap off him and promising he would return to reclaim it.
The Belt Collector said: "Fans of AAA, by now I'm sure you've heard the news. I'm out, I'm injured. I need surgery.
"You can think 'Kenny, that's great. You can rest and you can heal. You can come back a better champion for us.' That's not how this story goes. You see, your promotion is taking my belt from me.
"I wanted to beat you, Vikingo. I take joy in beating each and everyone of your heroes, one by one. But AAA, you're stealing the belt from me. After breaking the record and holding your belt longer than anyone else has before...did you ever once offer to postpone the match? No, and I've figured out why. It's the only way you're ever going to get it off of me.
"But that's okay. I'll let it slide. I'll tell you why. This gives you a chance to build a brand new hero. Whether it's Vikingo or not, this gives you that chance. And if I know anything about how you run your business, it's that when I come back I get first dibs.
"And that'll be the first step in winning the belt again and that'll be the first step in becoming the greatest wrestler, not only in North American history, but the greatest wrestler in Japan history. And then, by winning the Mega Championship for a second time and breaking by own record, I'll become the greatest luchador in professional wrestling history.
"So enjoy the time now while I'll be gone, because I'll be back. I promise you."
