Will Ospreay Suffered Permanent “Deformity” After Recent Injury

Will Ospreay

Will Ospreay revealed that a recent injury has left a lasting mark on his body.

Throughout his career, Will Ospreay has proven himself as one of the best in the business, racking up 5+ star matches and wrestling the top performers in the world.

At Forbidden Door on July 25th, he went head to head with Kenny Omega in a rematch for the IWGP United States Championship. While Omega was successful in defeating Ospreay for the belt at Wrestle Kingdom 17 in Tokyo, it was Ospreay who had his hand raised in Toronto after managing to pin Omega with plenty of interference from Don Callis at ringside.

Once again reigning as IWGP United States Heavyweight champion, Ospreay took to social media after the bout to heap praise on Omega as “above elite,” and Omega also gave a proverbial tip of the hat to Ospreay with a social media message of respect.

Speaking at a media scrum following the event, Ospreay revealed that at the age of 30, he feels his body is breaking down, and as a result he plans to wrap up his independent appearances within the year. He also spoke about partially tearing his pectoral tendon recently, an injury he says has left him with a permanent deformity. He also revealed that his shoulder popped out of place during a recent match with Tanahashi, and he now has weakness in the shoulder area.

Elsewhere in the media scrum, Tony Khan spoke about the enormous cost of securing Final Countdown for Bryan Danielson’s entrance as he faced Kazuchika Okada.
