Will Ospreay’s transition to AEW last year sparked considerable discussion within the wrestling community and he is now a full-fledged AEW star. He had an incredible match at AEW Dynasty but it was not without controversy and now Ospreay has confirmed he is retiring a big move.

During AEW Dynasty, fans were completely astounded as two of the most electrifying in-ring performers, Ospreay and Danielson, clashed in a battle of high-flying moves, intense strikes, and breathtaking counters. The back-and-forth action, with daring top rope maneuvers and heavy punches, painted a vivid picture of the competition between “The Aerial Assassin” and “The American Dragon.” It was a match that could easily be considered a Match of the Year candidate.

The energy in the arena was palpable, with loud chants echoing throughout as the crowd reacted to every twist and turn. It was clear that they were witnessing an instant classic between two top-tier athletes. As the match reached its climax, Bryan Danielson prepared to deliver his signature running knee to seal the victory, but Ospreay had other plans. He countered the move, causing Bryan to hit the mat hard, then struck the back of Danielson’s head, leaving him stunned and unable to defend himself. Ospreay seized the moment and pinned Danielson for the crucial three-count, securing the win as fans were worried for Danielson after Ospreay hit the Storm Driver 91.

While speaking on the post-AEW Dynasty media scrum, Will Ospreay revealed that he is officially retiring the Storm Driver 91 following the injury scare that happened to Bryan Danielson.


‘It seems that Bryan got hurt on the Storm Driver and I didn’t see the doctor call. So I want to apologize on that. Obviously, within the confines of wrestling, in the ring it’s your life and mine until you see the vice of what you did. I feel awful about this, even though 90% of the time it’s been fine, seeing the damage it has done, I’m gonna retire using the Storm Driver 91, I don’t it’s right for me to continue using it after seeing what it did to Bryan, for someone I got huge respect for. So to see the outcome, although I’m happy everyone enjoyed the match, I’m disappointed in myself and I apologize to Bryan, AEW medics and Tony.”

We will have to wait and see what’s next in store for Will Ospreay, as it is evident he will eventually go after Swerve Strickland for the AEW World Championship as soon as possible.
