Kenny Omega has held the main title in the main wrestling company in Japan (IWGP Heavyweight Championship), also the main title in one of the two main companies in Mexico (AAA Megachampionship), at some point he will be AEW Champion. At this point, can he be considered the first International Triple Crown champion?

Interesting thought, but would he really be the first? Given major championships and wins, I am assuming someone like Ultimo Dragon or Antonio Inoki would hold that honor, but I could be wrong. In modern day, Pac might officially beat Omega to that title, if he gets the AEW World Title first (had Dragon Gate, surely some European Promotions, had WWE titles).
Vader held the WCW World Title, IWGP Title, All Japan Triple Crown, UWA World Title in Mexico and the CWA World Title in Germany. And of those, he held the IWGP, CWA and UWA Titles at the same time.
Dory Funk Jr. was NWA World Champion, WWC Universal Champion in Puerto Rico, CWA World Champion in Germany and NWA International Heavyweight Champion which was considered the top title in Japan prior to it becoming part of the All Japan Triple Crown.
