Will Ospreay Hints Kenny Omega Blocked His AEW Debut In 2021

Will Ospreay suggests Kenny Omega stopped him debuting for AEW in 2021

It’s safe to say at this point that Will Ospreay and Kenny Omega aren’t exactly the best of friends, with the two constantly taking shots at one another on social media.

Whilst to some it may look like an angle for a future match, a recent interview Ospreay gave to Wrestle Inn further suggests there is real life animosity between the pair:

"It's belittling,” said Ospreay of Omega’s recent Fightful interview where he took shots at the UK star. “He's only doing it because of the interview side of things, he has to try and save face. You saw his true colours there. He wanted to bury me and he couldn't. This comes from a long line of things. Even speaking of AEW, it is only because I hang around with the boys after and we're all smoking and talking s***. Apparently, the rumour was that I was meant to be there a year ago, just doing 'forbidden door' stuff and somebody is putting the block on it. It doesn't take two and two to realise who it is. One person who has not been there for a while and all of a sudden, I'm welcomed in with open arms.” 

Ospreay continued, speculating that an issue between himself an Omega’s close friend Kota Ibushi could have started the bad blood between the two:

"This whole thing has generated from back in 2019 [Wrestle Kingdom 13], it was Kenny's last match and I guess he wanted Ibushi out there to second him. I f****** blew Ibushi's brain out with the Hidden Blade. He's super f****** mad at me. The thing is, I'm mad at myself when those situations happen. I don't want to brain somebody, but it's a legal wrestling move. I'm allowed to do it. I'm allowed to do blows to the back of the head, 12-6 elbows down. This is a 9-3 elbow strike, I'm allowed to do it. Obviously, the repercussion is he got knocked out and it was a bad concussion. Since then, myself and Ibushi, we have gone out for drinks. We don't talk anymore, but after that point, we went for drinks and meals, we're fine, but Kenny is butthurt off an accident,” said Ospreay.

Omega’s recent comments about Ospreay were quite belittling, and clearly Ospreay was in no mood to play around after hearing them:

"He can think what he wants about me, but the motherf***** is such a little b****,” said Ospreay. “The same person who is like, 'I grew up after six or seven five-star matches.' No you didn't, you c***. You vanity search your name on Twitter to see what everybody says and when it's bad, you cry in the corner of your million-pound house and you're still bothered by some c*** who sits doing some wrestling matches who is trying to help out, not only the British scene, but the Japanese scene, because I'm not an idiot when it comes to my company. We got hit hard by the pandemic. Does that mean I'm taking a day off? No, I'm working my ass off to bring it back because that's what you said to do.

“This is the reason I don't like Kenny. This is where some people can relate. When you say something to me, look me in the eye, and speak to me, when you talk to me and tell me this and then go to fans and talk differently, that's where we have a problem. You have my number, if we have a problem, call me and we can f****** talk about this. I don't have anything to say to him. Be all, end all, I'm sure if everyone was in the same room, I would slap him. The worst thing is, people are gonna listen and be like, 'They're building to something.' We're not building up to anything. He's a c***. I will slap that boy and remind him, 'You're a f****** 40-year-old man and you're f****** fragile. Do you really want to get with me? I will end you.’"

Ospreay continued, saying that there are some in AEW who allegedly have their opinions on Omega:

"Just know that when you talk s***, it does get back to me. Be aware that there are people, in your workplace, that are talking s*** about you as well. Maybe you're not coming off smelling roses like you thinking," Ospreay concluded.
