Will Ospreay is one of the most critically acclaimed pro-wrestlers in the game these days. The star took on Kota Ibushi in order to secure the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship at NJPW’s Sakura Genesis event last year. Ospreay emerged victorious, but he was sidelined because of a neck injury. That being said, he might not be a bestseller in the merchandise department.
Ospreay has since then come back, and he’s doing great work with his wrestling chops. He has won many championships since his return and even went toe-to-toe with Orange Cassidy at AEW X NJPW Forbidden Door.
Wrestling Banana, a Twitter parody account, posted that Will Ospreay has more 5-star matches in a month than CM Punk, John Cena and Kurt Angle combined do in their whole careers.
Will Ospreay has had more 5-star matches (4) in 1 month than CM Punk, John Cena, and Kurt Angle have combined in their entire career (3).
WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash chimed in to make a comment on his merchandise sale figures. He asked how much merch gets sold for him. Fans quickly started replying to his tweet to say that he has a lot more sales than Diesel.
How’s his merchandise sales?
To be fair, Big Kev knows a thing or two about selling merchandise. Those nWo t-shirts are still pulling in big numbers.
