NJPW's Will Ospreay Provides Injury Update, Admits "Things Ain't Looking Good"

He's hoping to return to the ring later this year

Will Ospreay has revealed he may be dealing with a lower back injury alongside his existing neck problems. 

The Commonwealth Kingpin revealed yesterday he was being referred for an MRI on his back and he is hoping to return to the ring at some point in 2021.

"Had my physio pop over the house today & after further digging I'm now being referred for another MRI on my lower back as well for fears I may have the same issue in my neck. Things ain't looking good, but I'm determined to comeback this year. Thanks for all the support," Ospreay wrote.

Ospreay was previously IWGP World Heavyweight Champion but New Japan Pro-Wrestling vacated the title on May 20 after The Aerial Assassin suffered a neck injury at Wrestling Dontaku. Reports have noted the two sides disagreed over Ospreay's treatment and he decided to return to the United Kingdom after NJPW asked him to stay in Japan and work the hastily rescheduled Wrestle Grand Slam tour.
