Will Ospreay is regarded as one of the best pro wrestlers of the last decade, as he had stellar matches in many companies all over the world. His awe-inspiring performances during the past few years have propelled him to the top of the industry. He finally won the IWGP United States Championship at the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door event and now it appears Ospreay was called the greatest wrestler alive.

Kenny Omega won the IWGP United States championship back in January, after defeating Will Ospreay in one of the greatest matches in NJPW history. Despite Kenny Omega winning the match, it was made clear that their feud was far from over.

It all came to a head at the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door event, as Kenny Omega defended the IWGP United States Championship against Will Ospreay. It was truly an instant classic match in many ways and fans were at the edge of their seats throughout. In the end, Ospreay ended up beating Omega for the title.

While speaking to Dark Puroresu Flowsion, Kyle Fletcher revealed that he hugged and welcomed Will Ospreay in the backstage area after his match against Omega. He then called him the “greatest wrestler alive today.”

“I got to be there & hug Will as soon as he came back & tell him how proud of him I was. He’s the greatest wrestler alive today without a doubt in my mind & I hope I can get even close to his level one day.”

We will have to wait and see what will become of Will Ospreay now that he had reclaimed his throne as the IWGP United States Champion. It is likely he will have a long reign as the champion.
