June 27, 2023 0 By JohnValbyNation

A date has been set for Kenny Omega and El Hijo del Vikingo's rematch.

At a press conference on Monday, Lucha Libre AAA announced that Vikingo will defend his AAA Mega Championship against Omega at Triplemania XXXI: Tijuana. The show is taking place on Saturday, July 15 and will be available live via Fite TV.

Omega defeated Vikingo in a non-title match when the two faced off on an episode of AEW Dynamite this March. The match was Vikingo's AEW debut.

The Dynamite bout between Omega and Vikingo was billed as a first-time ever dream match. They were originally supposed to face each other for AAA in 2021, but Omega being injured prevented the match from happening then.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated prior to facing Vikingo for the first time, Omega said Vikingo is someone who is going to "change the way people think about wrestling and change the way we think about lucha libre."

Vikingo has been AAA Mega Champion since December 2021. Omega held the title prior to Vikingo but had to vacate it due to the injury issues he was dealing with.

Triplemania: Tijuana is the second of three Triplemania shows that is taking place this year.
