Since capturing the AAA Mega Championship at Heroes Immortales XIII on October 19, Kenny Omega has yet to defend his new title. However, his first defence has now been revealed.
All Elite Wrestling announced last night via Twitter that The Cleaner will face Jack Evans during tonight's taping of Dark in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Allowing the title to be defended outside of AAA events is somewhat of an oddity for the Mexico based promotion. Since 2015, this will only be the third occasion it has happened.
Previously, champion Alberto El Patron retained the title in a bull rope match against Texano during season one of Lucha Underground.
The last defence outside of AAA, however, was in September 2018 at GALLI El Adios in Villa Park, Illinois in a title vs title match with the AAA Mega Championship and GALLI title on the line. Rey Fenix defeated Aero Boy by pinfall after hitting his opponent with the Black Fire Driver.
Also announced is an All Out rematch between Omega and PAC, with that bout going down on next week's Dynamite.
