Konnan Calls Report About Rush And TripleMania ‘Spot On’ – Exclusive

In the main event of the final night of AAA TripleMania XXXI, Sam Adonis lost his hair in a fatal four-way match also featuring Psycho Clown, L.A. Park, and AEW star Rush. Last week, we reported some backstage news coming out of the event, including details about AAA’s rumored United States TV deal and Rush pushing for the inclusion of Jose the Assistant and Preston Vance in the match. In an exclusive Haus of Wrestling interview, AAA booker Konnan spoke with me about the report and addressed some of the pushback to it on social media from Jose and Rush.

“I saw you had a little tit for tat, I think, with Jose and maybe Rush,” he said. “Nobody likes to be put in a negative light, right? Nobody wants to do the truth to get out there. I thought you were pretty spot on with what you were saying because I can tell you this for a fact, I didn’t know what was going on, and I’m the booker. You know what I’m saying?”

Konnan went on to speak more about his experience backstage at the event, which is considered to be the biggest pro wrestling event of the year in Mexico.

“I get along with Rush,” he continued. “I don’t get along with La Park, and that’s the reason I didn’t book that match. So, Dorian booked it, and a lot of stuff wasn’t communicated to the people that need to know it because when I saw Jose and Preston Vance get involved, I was like, ‘I wasn’t ever told about this.’ You know? I didn’t even know it. I don’t know if Rush did it himself or if Dorian told him he could do it, but Dorian told me that wasn’t supposed to happen.

“Then if you notice on the, I think when Rush clapped back at you, he says … because originally, we were all told that Tony Khan wanted them to be involved. But then, if you notice Rush put on there, they were there because I (he) wanted him there. And I was like, ‘Okay, so what’s going on here?'”

My full conversation with Konnan is now available on the Haus of Wrestling YouTube channel and podcast feed.
