As we march through the back half of 2022 and the end of the year approaches, let’s get to know Hijo del Vikingo. Vikingo is the current AAA Mega Champion and has recently gotten approved for a United States work visa. Things have opened up a world of possibilities on both sides of the border. A return to IMPACT Wrestling or debut in All Elite Wrestling could be in the cards for Vikingo. A potential tour across the American independent scene would be more likely than anything. Anything is possible from a rematch with Josh Alexander in IMPACT Wrestling, to a potential first time ever match with Darby Allin. Nothing is off limits when it comes to singles matches with Vikingo making his long awaited return to the states later this year.
Getting to Know AAA’s Hijo del Vikingo
Vikingo has a big AAA title defense coming up on October 15th against Rey Fenix , at the second edition of Triplemania specials from AAA Lucha Libre. The match has been highly anticipated for almost two years since Fenix first issued the idea for a singles encounter with Hijo del Vikingo. Both men have had similar paths during their careers in AAA. What differentiates them is that Fenix has never won the AAA World Trios championships. A two time reign with the championships is one of the few accomplishments to separate both men within the promotion. Hijo del Vikingo has been earmarked as the future of AAA and with him being a homegrown luchador, things have certainly been working in his favor.
