Many fans were concerned about Will Ospreay and Kenny Omega’s condition after their Forbidden Door match. It seems that both of them are okay after the match. In fact, Kenny Omega said that he’s fine.

Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that, “Will Ospreay and Kenny Omega had a match considered by many to be an instant classic at Forbidden Door.” It was also noted that they received quite a reception backstage after their banger of a match.


Many watching the match voiced concern over spots in the match, and the condition the competitors would be in after a series of moves that several deemed risky. However, we were told that both competitors emerged relatively unscathed. In fact, Kenny Omega told several people he was fine after the match ended. 

Omega and Ospreay returned backstage after the match to applause and a standing ovation from the match, which received heavy praise from their peers.

It was also noted that “this match, much like the Wrestle Kingdom match, was meticulously planned.” Ospreay also told the outlet that “he wanted a second match with Omega to be a lot different, because he felt like at Wrestle Kingdom that Omega got in about 80 percent of the offense.”

We will have to see how the star ratings pan out for Forbidden Door, but there is certainly a lot to unpack after such a historic event. Only time will tell what they do next year in an attempt to top things.
