Will Ospreay: “No One Owns Pro-Wrestling Moves!”

3 Comments

Xia Brookside took to Twitter to ask her fellow wrestlers to stop stealing moves from other wrestlers. She said that one should always ask for permission before doing someone else’s moves and avoid changing their original names.

NJPW’s Will Ospreay saw this tweet and responded with a series of tweets. Ospreay said that he had the same opinion a few years back but it has changed now.

Ospreay said that people like Johnny Gargano, Nina Samuels, Cedric Alexander, Buddy Murphy, and more were using his moves at a time when they were not being used by anyone except him.

However, he said that no one owns moves although one should add their own creativity to their work and not just use something that has been done by someone else in the same month.

Ospreay brought up an incident about the time his girlfriend Bea Priestley used a move that was previously used by Manami Toyota. Priestley gave credits to Toyota for the move but received a negative response from the Japanese legend.

Ospreay also made it clear that he does agree with Brookside about asking for permission.
