AEW star and one of the promotion’s EVP’s 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.
It was recently reported that the former AEW Champion is suffering from vertigo, and he’s set to have multiple surgeries. Omega officially announced that he will be taking time off from wrestling on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
That being said, there was still uncertainly over his AAA Championship defense against El Hijo Del Vikingo at Triplemanía Regia II on December 4th. Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio now reports that the Omega will soon vacate his title, leading to his championship defense being canceled.
The Mega Championship is the last of the three World Titles Omega has held in 2021 to fall. Though he entered the year with it and the AEW World Title in his possession, he adopted an Ultimo Dragon-style ‘Belt Collector’ gimmick upon becoming IMPACT World Champion in April, dropping that strap to Christian Cage four months later.
Omega had been Mega Champion since October 2019, when he defeated Rey Fenix.
