Will Ospreay challenged Kota Ibushi for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship at NJPW’s Sakura Genesis event last year. Ospreay did the impossible and ended up defeating Ibushi to become the new champion and cemented his legacy. Unfortunately, he was forced to relinquish it due to neck injury. He also doesn’t have the best opinion of WWE Superstars.

The Aerial Assassin has come back with a vengeance since then and has already won championships since his return. Ospreay’s impeccable in-ring skills and charisma always elevate him to the top of any company.

While speaking to the “WRESTHINGS podcast,” Will Ospreay was asked about his opinion when it came to WWE Superstars. Ospreay stated that he does not consider WWE Superstars as real pro wrestlers.

“You guys aren’t wrestlers, you’re actors and you just do wrestling and I don’t think that’s a dig. You guys make way more money than me like, good on you. But I just feel like when I say proudly, ‘That’s a wrestler. I am a wrestler, I am not an actor,’ but I know you guys can wrestle, you’re just not really allowed to show it, I guess … But other than you want to make a lot of money and retire, that’s what WWE is kind of for these days.”


Will Ospreay also has no ambitions of going to WWE. We will have to wait and see whether Ospreay will make his way to AEW in the future or not. Fans would love to see him duke it out in numerous dream matches there.
