Will Ospreay Won’t Lower Himself To WWE’s Jabs Anymore

Will Ospreay

Will Ospreay had one of the nights of his career at AEW Dynasty and he also explained why he won’t be talking about anyone in WWE anymore.

Speaking on The Pat McAfee Show, Triple H explained how he keeps track of those working in the industry with the help of those working with him in WWE but says ultimately he has to see how good someone is before they’ll get a chance in WWE and says success elsewhere won’t guarantee success at the biggest show in town:

If they are not here to be all in on this…when I see people coming out of trying to make it, and then they pick a job where, well, they work less, the schedule is lighter, then I’m like, ‘I’m glad I didn’t pick you.’ If you’re not in it for the grind, at that point early in your career, you have no business being here.

Ospreay spoke with Renee Paquette on Dynamite before his dream match with Bryan Danielson at Dynasty and shared a little message of his own to The Game:

I am delivering some of the best professional wrestling matches this world has ever seen, bruv.

Normally I wouldn’t rise to this type of bait. But seeing as the guy who said it is only in the position he is in because he was grinding on the boss’s daughter, you are in no position to tell me what the grind is all about, my friend, because you have no idea what I fight for.

So let this be a painful little jab back and a gentle reminder that you do not throw stones at an assassin with a machine gun.

Will Ospreay Wins Big At AEW Dynasty

Will Ospreay defeated Bryan Danielson at AEW Dynasty in a match that lived up to the hype. However, an injury scare prompted Ospreay to announce that he was retiring one of his patented moves.

At the post-Dynasty media scrum, Will Ospreay was asked about his shot at Triple H and WWE and revealed he won’t be stooping to make any more of them as he believes his matches are silencing all of his critics:

I don’t want to address it anymore. I can remember a generation of when I grew up where like, you throw a jab, I throw one back. Although I wasn’t mentioned by name, it was clearly about me. All due respect, I’m kind of done mentioning anyone over there now. I don’t want to do that anymore because I feel I lowered myself to that standard. I don’t need to do that anymore.

Look what I just did in the ring with Bryan. That’s only match two from pay-per-view. I’ve got a f*ckload more to go down. With all due respect, if you take everything into consideration, of course I’m annoyed about a jab that I took. I threw one back, I don’t think it was anything bad. It’s a joke from 20 years ago for f*ck sake. Don’t be too butthurt.

That’s the first time I’ve ever experienced true tribalism between the two. It’s not nice. It’s unnecessary. I’m over it. I can’t be bothered with it. I just want to be focused on promoting AEW. I don’t regret what I said. You take the entire thing into consideration, it did piss me off, but from this day on, I won’t go down that road. I don’t need to. I’m the best wrestler in the world. I don’t need to f*ck with guys below me.
