That means a full recap and results, plus previews of everything currently announced*. Let’s get to it!
AAA Mega Championship: Kenny Omega (c) vs. Sammy Guevara
Last week, Kenny Omega was still thinking, or perhaps just hoping, that he’d be involved in the first-ever Blood and Guts match here tonight. But things changed. However in adapting, they’ve actually put together a pretty exciting match-up in my estimation. Kenny Omega has been the AAA Mega Champion for quite a while now, having won it from Rey Fenix back in October. He’s essentially held it for the entire length of Dynamite’s run. However, aside from a title defense against Jack Evans on AEW Dark, it has seldom been acknowledged on All Elite Wrestling TV.
Tonight, for the first time, Kenny Omega puts the title on the line in prime time. Here on Dynamite, he defends the gold against Sammy Guevara! Something I like is that on the rare occasion that Kenny defends the gold, it’s against someone with an actual tie to AAA. It’s theoretically entirely within reason that Sammy Guevara could win the AAA Mega Championship and take it with him back to Mexico. He is the Spanish God, after all… Sammy’s also a guy that’s become a much bigger deal in recent months. He’s one of AEW’s hottest young names, which is saying something when that’s a big part of the promotion’s image.
This should make for a great match for sure, but of course I don’t expect a title change. AAA had to cancel the big Kenny/Fenix rematch but they’re no doubt looking to put it on again whenever they get the chance. Omega to retain.
- *Last week, two matches were announced in advance: a Lumberjack match between two big hosses pitting Wardlow against Luchasaurus, and a Parking Lot Brawl between the Best Friends and the Lucha Bros. While neither of these matches have been officially deconfirmed, they are no longer actively advertising them and given the worsening circumstances, a Lumberjack match in particular seems unlikely.
