Will Ospreay had some harsh words about his rival Kenny Omega along with some other Canadian wrestling legends.
At NJPW Dominion, Will Ospreay beat Lance Archer in the finals of a mini-tournament to earn a shot at the IWGP US Champion Kenny Omega at the AEW-NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view in three weeks on June 25th. The match will take place in Toronto, Ontario and Kenny Omega is a Canadian from Winnipeg, so he has the “home field” advantage in the match.
It will be a rematch for Kenny Omega and Will Ospreay. Their Wrestle Kingdom 17 match from January saw Omega take the US Title from Ospreay, so the Englishman will be trying to win the championship back. Their Wrestle Kingdom match is considered by many people to be one of the best matches of this year and an all-time great match as well.
After his win at Dominion, Will Ospreay did an expletive-filled promo complaining about Canada as well as wrestling legends from Canada like Bret Hart and Chris Jericho, as well as Omega.
“I’m walking into AEW territory once again. Only this time, Kenny, in the Tokyo Dome, I can’t tell you enough, you embarrassed me. It was 80% you, 20% Ospreay, we all know it. I left covered in my own blood, a shell of a man. Now I have to get revenge. There is not a better place to do it than in your home territory.
I’ll say it now. I f**king can’t stand Canada. I genuinely can’t. Where is this f**king notion that all Canadians are nice? ‘Oh, sorry about that. Everyone is Canada is f**king nice.’ Look at the evidence. Chris Jericho, a**hole. Don Callis, a**hole. El Phantasmo, a**hole. Bret Hart just moans all the f*king time. I just figure all you Canadians are f**king a*holes.”
“It’s going to be real f**king good, walking into enemy territory. I’m going to welcome it. I’m at my best when I’m a little f**king d**khead. I have a point to prove. I don’t care if your heart is broken and your family is awful. Boo f**king hoo. You ripped my heart out and ate it in front of me. Only difference is, I’m still breathing.”
“The heart you ripped out, I put it right back in and it’s still beating. That time I’ve been away, I’m an open heart surgeon. I’m going rip your heart out and eat it in front of Canada. I need this one. I have to prove a point. I am the best wrestler in the world. It’s time to show up.”
Obviously, Will Ospreay is being heelish in that promo to try to build the match, but he still said it.
