Report: Will Ospreay's Shoulder Injury Much Worse Than First Believed

Will Ospreay is going to be out for longer than expected

Will Ospreay's shoulder injury may be a lot worse than originally feared, according to a new report. 

PWInsider Elite noted that New Japan Pro-Wrestling are not taking any chances with their star, due to the belief that his injury will take longer than expected to heal.

The Aerial Assassin was forced to withdraw from the New Japan Cup and he has also been replaced by Hiroshi Tanahashi at the IMPACT x NJPW Multiverse United show on March 30. In addition, Ospreay will be off New Japan's next tour, making him unavailable for their Sakura Genesis show on April 8. 

The 29-year-old injured his shoulder during his second-round New Japan Cup victory over Mark Davis on March 13. The former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion has had several injury issues in recent years, including a serious neck injury in 2021.

At this stage, it is unknown exactly how long Ospreay will be out of action for. While it is still a long way off, it could potentially affect the planned rematch with Kenny Omega for Forbidden Door II.
