Kenny Omega Has Special Praise For Will Ospreay

During his recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Kenny Omega revealed the advice he gave to Will Ospreay just before he left NJPW;

One of the last things I said when I was leaving New Japan after my match with Tanahashi was to Will Ospreay. I told him there is no one with a larger tool box and set of tools than him, and it was just a matter of getting his s*it together and figuring out how to use those tools properly instead of just doing s*it, just to show people you can. And to his credit, Will’s figured it out. He’s regarded by a large chunk of people as the best in the world.”

It seems that he took this advice to heart.

Bulking up to a Heavyweight and still being able to put in the kind of match that leaves jaw’s on the floor is no easy feat, but it’s one that Ospreay has managed to pull off and in doing so, he’s put himself deep into the discussion about The Best in the World.

And as you can see from Omega’s quote, it’s something he’s noticed.

Hopefully, at least one day, we can see the two go toe to toe, either in AEW or NJPW, but until then we’ll just have to be content with the knowledge that when Kenny Omega speaks, a lot of wrestlers listen.
