Don Callis Nearly Choked Out During AAA Attack – Exclusive

Last night at AAA TripleMania XXXI, El Hijo de Vikingo, seconded by Don Callis, retained his AAA Mega Championship over AEW star Kenny Omega. Following the match, a press conference was held where Konosuke Takeshita, a Callis associate, attacked Omega, furthering their feud heading into Blood & Guts this Wednesday night. During the melee, someone in the area legitimately attacked Callis, and we now have more insight into what happened.

Haus of Wrestling reached out to AAA booker Konnan who tells us that the person who attacked Omega is a former security person who used to work concerts and pro wrestling events but was just supposed to be visiting his friends at the show, who were actually working security detail. We are told that the attacker was not supposed to be involved in breaking up the wrestlers but “marked out” and got involved once he saw action happening.

Konnan tells us that the former security guard “almost choked Don Callis out and ripped his suit” on top of possibly twisting the conniving manager’s ankle and busting his lip. It was confirmed that despite the damage done, Don is okay.

Following the altercation, we are told that the former security guard who attacked Callis “got worked,” but we were not given any more details beyond that. For those unfamiliar with what “got worked” means, it usually entails someone who physically gets involved in a pro wrestling show but was not intended to do so legitimately being beaten up.

Omega, Takeshita, and Callis will share space this Wednesday night on AEW Dynamite when The Golden Elite battle Blackpool Combat Club inside Blood & Guts. The Golden Elite will feature Omega alongside his Golden Lovers tag team partner, Kota Ibushi, The Young Bucks, and “Hangman” Adam Page. Takeshita will stand alongside Eddie Kingston and BCC’s Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli, and Wheeler Yota.
