At AAA’s Héroes Inmortales XIII on Saturday night, Kenny Omega defeated Fénix to become the AAA Mega Champion (the promotion’s top honour) following a One-Winged Angel.

Both wrestlers regularly appear for AEW, where Kenny Omega also serves as an Executive Vice President. AAA and AEW announced a working partnership in February.

Fénix remains one half of the AAA World Tag Team Champions with his brother Pentagón Jr.

Great match! Great to be able to watch this via Twitch Live. Free, good stream. My favorite Kenny match since the Dome and it was hard hitting. Rey was busted up and Kenny looked vicious.

It’s interesting to put a title on him for a few reasons: will it be shown on TNT? Is what happens in AAA/Non-AEW cannon or not? I really hope they put thoughtful creative or discussion behind non AEW appearances as noteworthy as this. I was already thinking about this with the PAC British J cup announcement. And lastly, shows a strong position for AEW in the partnership. They wouldn’t send any talent for the struggling MSG show and now have an EP as a champion of the company.

Can the card be rewatched on demand on Twitch?

I had no idea that AAA was doing Twitch shows, thought it was just HoH and Impact.

The crowd didn’t know Omega’s stuff like to stomp for Rise of the Terminator, so it made the false finishes that much heated because they didn’t know that was his finishing move

Not sure, I don’t know how Twitch works admittedly. I was surprised it was available free. Is Impact available free tonight?

No, but they have an ongoing feed like AAA does with recurring legacy content. Impact did (haven’t watched for a while) have their weekly new content show up on Twitch every Friday night.

Now that they are on AXS that maybe going away, but who knows.

Twitch does have the ability to save streams for viewing later. I checked out AAA and found they have an English feed site. They do put the ability to view past content behind a paywall. You need to be a subscriber, but if you have Amazon Prime you get a free monthly sub for Twitch, and I used that to sub to AAA so I could watch the content.

Otherwise it is $4.99 a month to sub to a channel.
I hope I broadened your Twitch knowledge.

Pretty fun match! Was neat to see Omega working in a style very different from his Japanese and American indie work. Even if some of the signature beats were the same, the overall rhythm and pace of the match were refreshing. Will be interesting to see if AAA title matches could end up on AEW TV, or at least if matches and feuds from outside of AEW will be acknowledged. In the 80s and 90s I was always a little confused whenever the WWF did occasionally acknowledge titles or matches which happened beyond their own product, but it’s so much easier today to be able to check out (or at least get up to speed on) matches outside of a show like Dynamite’s regular flow and continuity.
