At 737 days as champion, Kenny Omega broke the all-time record for holding the AAA Mega Title, overtaking El Texano Jr. whose reign lasted 735 days from 2012 to 2014.
Omega last defended the AAA Mega Championship at Triplemania XXIX when he took on fellow AEW star, Andrade El Idolo. Despite interference from Ric Flair, the Best Bount Machine emerged victorious to prolong his historic run with the Championship.
The Belt Collector won the title almost exactly two years back when he defeated one half of the Lucha Brothers, Rey Fenix Jr., in an instant classic at AAA Heroes Inmortales XIII – Event at Coliseo La Concordia in Orizaba, Veracruz, Mexico.
AAA has now confirmed Kenny Omega’s incredible achievement with a tweet to congratulate the current AEW Champion.
Here’s the translation of the tweet:
