It wasn’t a good night for AEW wrestlers keeping their AAA titles at Wednesday’s Noche de Campeones event.
The show in Acapulco saw Flammer and Abismo Negro Jr. win the AAA Mixed Tag Team titles, which were declared vacant on Wednesday after the company announced that champions Tay Melo and Sammy Guevara would be stripped of the titles. FTR, who did appear on the show, lost the AAA Tag Team titles to Dralistico and Dragon Lee. The future of the titles remain unclear, however, as Lee announced he had signed with WWE after winning the titles.
FTR lost the Tag Team titles to Dralistico and Lee in a match where heel referee Hijo del Tirantes was not allowed to cheat. When he did just that, Konnan came out and ejected him from the match. A new referee came in, allowing Dralistico and Lee to score the win and the titles. FTR had held onto the titles for over 427 days, defeating Fenix and Pentagon Jr. on the October 16, 2021 edition of AEW Dynamite.
Arez additionally became the first La Leyenda Azul champion on Wednesday, defeating Villano III Jr. and Black Taurus in a three-way to become the first champion.
