YUCATAN, Mexico (Ambush Sports) — Kenny Omega will be defending the AAA Mega Championship at their next major event, according to an announcement Tuesday.
Omega is slated on the card of Rey de Reyes on March 21 to defending the title against Laredo Kid. The show is taking place live from the Poliforum Zamna in the Merida district of Yucatan and will stream live on their respective Spanish and English channels on Amazon’s Twitch platform.
