AEW’s Kenny Omega & NJPW’s Will Ospreay In Online Spat
The two went back and forth on Twitter
After being named wrestler of the year on the PWI 500 yesterday, Kenny Omega was called out by ‘unsanctioned’ IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay on Twitter.
Unimpressed with Omega’s position on the list, the seventh placed Ospreay Tweeted:
“I’d beat up number 1 any day of the week and twice on Wednesdays…..just saying”
Omega saw Ospreay’s statement, and fired back at The Aerial Assassin:
“Your promotion has been so ice cold since I left that not even Meltzer can convince his followers that you were part of any BITW conversation.
“It hurts me, bruv. One of you dorks should have been the guy. Turned out a bigger dog was my only competition.”
Ospreay had the final volley, saying:
“Last chat we had was “you need to be the guy”
“Since then you left we sold out MSG, sold more tickets at the Tokyo dome than ever before, and put on banger after banger.
“A pandemic put the breaks on & you know it. Open that door, let’s have this conversation.”
With the ‘forbidden door’ between AEW and NJPW blown off of its hinges, and Ospreay currently splitting his time between the UK and USA, a match between the two is certainly possible.
