Jeff Jarrett Defeats Rey Mysterio To Win Championship

WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett became AAA Mega Champion after defeating the reigning champion Rey Wagner and former WWE Star Rey Mysterio Jr. in a Triple Threat match during a show this past weekend.

Jarrett made his surprise return to AAA during Verano de Escandalo and entered himself into the title match. He became the champion after the Official for the bout got knocked out and the special guest referee La Parka made the three count.

Parka then went on to reveal himself as Konnan and after this reveal; Jeff became the newest member of Konnan’s faction MAD. It’s worth mentioning here that this is the second reign of Jeff Jarrett with the title after originally winning it back in 2011:

Austin Aries Reflects On Loss To Neville

A fan recently posted an ‘on this day’ GIF of last year’s Extreme Rules PPV where the then-Cruiserweight Champion Neville had defeated the current Impact World Champion Austin Aries in a singles match.

The World Champion took notice of this tweet and reflecting on it he said that he would like to face the King Of The Cruiserweights again whenever he is done ‘serving his time’:

Neville is currently inactive after walking out of Raw for being unhappy with his creative direction for a long time. There hasn’t been any update on his situation in recent times and the belief is that the company will have him sit through his contract.
