Former IWGP United States Champion Will Ospreay has been out of action since suffering a shoulder injury during his New Japan Cup match against Mark Davis on March 13. He has since been pulled from multiple shows he was scheduled to compete at, including the upcoming IMPACT x NJPW Multiverse United event.
In an update on his condition, Ospreay took to Twitter to say that he has more range of motion in his shoulder but he is still struggling with strength. He added that he thinks he will be okay, but he is taking the time to properly recover so he doesn’t risk further injury by returning too soon.
Just an update for you all.
I have more range of motion in my shoulder but still struggling with strength.
I think I’ll be ok but I’m just going through my physio with this as I don’t wanna come back too early and this thing rip off.
Much love, miss you all.
It is unclear at this time how long Ospreay will remain sidelined, but his absence has already caused him to miss out on a number of high-profile matches. Fans will no doubt be eagerly anticipating his return to the ring, but it is important that Ospreay takes the time he needs to fully recover from his injury before returning to competition.
Ringside News will continue to provide updates on Ospreay’s condition as more information becomes available.
