Following his Twitter war with Universal champion Seth Rollins, IWGP Junior-Heavyweight champion Will Ospreay spoke with Sports Illustrated to talk all things pro-wrestling. In the interview, Ospreay states that the best wrestlers in the WWE and AEW came from NJPW before calling himself “untouchable” in the ring.
Every person that is a star in WWE or All Elite Wrestling came from this company. This is where they got good, this is where they applied their trade to make themselves the stars that they are. No one’s leaving anytime soon, we’re all sticking together. Now is the time for us to take center stage and show the world that we are the best professional wrestling company in the world. And right now, I feel like I’m untouchable in the ring. I feel like I can get in there with anyone and bring out their best game. I’m more than ready.
Ospreay then praises NJPW as the best wrestling company in the world because it’s the “pinnacle” of what pro-wrestling should be.
Our company produces the best pro wrestlers in the world. I understand the alternative. If you like WWE, that’s fine …you like the stories. If you like All Elite, you want something different. But New Japan Pro Wrestling is the pinnacle of what pro wrestling should be, and the pro wrestling fans should come and watch because this is the best. I’m not saying that on Twitter to Seth Rollins, I’m literally saying that because I truly believe it in my heart of heart.
