Will Ospreay challenged Kota Ibushi for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship at NJPW’s Sakura Genesis event last year. Ospreay shocked the world after defeating Ibushi to become the new champion and cemented his legacy. Unfortunately, he was forced to relinquish it due to neck injury.
The Aerial Assassin has come back with a vengeance since then and has already won championships since his return. He also had a match of the year contender with Orange Cassidy at the Forbidden Door event last month.
Fans are also aware of the fact that Ospreay and Omega have a heated rivalry on social media. At a recent Revolution Pro match, Will Ospreay used the One Winged Angel. He helped his opponent kick out of the move and gave an exaggerated expression of shock.
Kenny Omega saw Will Ospreay stealing his finishing move and had a sarcastic response to it. Will Ospreay then decided to eviscerate Kenny Omega in his reply.
I don’t get it. Also, pretty childish? Great execution, though
Quite simple really. If you’re a c*nt to me, I can be a bigger one. That’s just life’s rule
The Best Bout Machine and The Aerial Assassin have been trading barbs over the past few years. We will have to wait and see whether the two will clash somewhere down the line or not.
