In his inaugural match as an official member of the AEW roster at AEW Revolution, Will Ospreay faced off against Konosuke Takeshita. While Ospreay emerged victorious, a heart-stopping incident unfolded during the match when Takeshita executed a brainbuster on the ropes, causing Ospreay to seemingly land awkwardly on his back, resulting in a visible welt.

Speaking at the AEW Revolution post-show press conference, Ospreay was asked about his condition following the concerning moment. “My ass is so bad. Can I show a little bit of it? I’m not gonna show you my cheek,” Ospreay quipped as he displayed his bruised backside.

Tony Khan chimed in, expressing concerns about Ospreay’s readiness for his upcoming match against Kyle Fletcher scheduled for the March 6 episode of AEW Dynamite. Despite this, Ospreay affirmed his desire to compete. Continuing in the press scrum, Ospreay elaborated on his victory over Takeshita, labeling the brainbuster incident as the most excruciating experience of his life.

“That moment he brain-bustered my ass on the rope, dude, that was the most painful thing I’ve ever felt in my entire life. I wanted to cry [laughs]. There’s a lump, dude. But Takeshita’s the best,” Ospreay reflected.


In the aftermath of AEW Revolution, Will Ospreay’s resilience in the face of adversity shines through. Despite enduring a painful setback during his match against Konosuke Takeshita, Ospreay’s determination to push forward and compete speaks volumes about his dedication to his craft.
