NJPW star Will Ospreay has never been one to hold his tongue, especially when arguing with the WWE Superstars on Twitter.
Will Ospreay has previously argued with former WWE Champion Seth Rollins on Twitter, with Ospreay claiming he was a better wrestler than anyone in WWE before Rollins fired back by bragging about much money he made.
Ospreay is known to be combative towards those he feels slighted by and he has put his foot in it from time to time. However, the pride he takes in his work has helped make him the wrestler he is today, which is arguably the best in-ring wrestler in the modern day.
While he has mellowed in recent years and focused more on wrestling, it has not killed his desire to get argumentative on Twitter completely. Will Ospreay recently challenged some WWE superstars in their ideals and claimed that he was better than them because of one key reason…
Will Ospreay on WWE
Will Ospreay has recently spoken out about WWE and all of the WWE Superstars. The former IWGP heavyweight champion recently appeared on Wresthings podcast to talk about how WWE was not the place for “real wrestlers”.
Ospreay claimed that the WWE Superstars were just “actors and you just do wrestling”, whereas the Kingpin is a master of his craft who wrestles to be the best and not to make the most money.
During his interview with Wresthings, Will Ospreay said about WWE;
“You guys aren’t wrestlers, you’re actors and you just do wrestling and I don’t think that’s a dig. You guys make way more money than me like, good on you, but I just feel like when I say proudly, ‘That’s a wrestler. I am a wrestler, I am not an actor,’
But I know you guys can wrestle, you’re just not really allowed to show it, I guess.” said Will Ospreay, “But other than you want to make a lot of money and retire, that’s what WWE is kind of for these days.”
Will Ospreay has never desired to join WWE and considered NJPW and Japan as his home, despite being one of the best British wrestlers of all time. He is rumoured to be facing Kenny Omega at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door and has recently had some excellent matches against Jon Moxley in NJPW.
