Will Ospreay Doesn’t Care About Old F*cks With Podcasts

Will Ospreay AEW

Will Ospreay admits it was a “little bit hard” to hear criticism from Triple H.

Although he’s now All Elite, Will Ospreay held talks with WWE when he decided to leave NJPW. However, the star turned the company down in favour of heading to AEW, commenting that the switch was better for his family, and the easier schedule meant he could spend more time with his partner.

Ahead of WrestleMania 40, Triple H appeared to take a jab at Ospreay, discussing wrestlers who didn’t want to embrace the grind of working for WWE. Not one to take the slight lying down, Will Ospreay said the only thing Triple H had been grinding on was the boss’s daughter.

Naturally, the comments caused a stir online with former wrestlers and podcasters having a field day.

In a new interview with Adrian Hernandez, Ospreay discussed the reaction to his comments, adding there was “no harm done.”

“It is what it is. Everyone sent it to me. People within the company were saying, ‘That was a bag at you.’ I’m over it now. I said my bit. My thing was funny. Everyone took it way too personally. All these old f*cks that are like, ‘I have a podcast’ and they think they know everything. I couldn’t give a f*ck about these guys.

As soon as it was said, I fired back and it should be done. At the end of it, no harm done. I fu*cking like Triple H. It was a little bit hard hearing that sh*t. I was nothing but respectful in all the talks. I have my own mission, my own objectives, my own goals.

Just because it doesn’t fit with your things, it doesn’t mean people should be firing shots my way. I come from a generation where if you fire one at me, I fire one back,”

Will Ospreay Blasts WWE’s Use Of Ricochet

Speaking elsewhere, Will Ospreay took aim at WWE over its booking of Ricochet.

The British star said it was appalling that the company only seems to value him for short five-minute matches, alluding to his current run as WWE Speed Champion. Ospreay said Ricochet is one of the greatest high-flyers ever, and it makes him sad to see him used so sparingly.
