Current IWGP United States Champion Will Ospreay has picked up a lot of major wins and performances this year.
This year alone, Ospreay has wins over Kazuchika Okada, Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho, the latter taking place at AEW All In at Wembley Stadium.
For those that pay attention, Ospreay also holds the record for the most five star matches in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter out of every wrestler in history, with many of those coming this year alone.
Speaking to NJPW, Ospreay discussed his career, and whether he believes he is the best wrestler in the world today.
“I’ve said for so long, that little catchphrase. ‘My name’s Will Ospreay and I am on another level’. I say it as a catchphrase, but I genuinely do mean it. I genuinely believe I’m on a level above any other professional wrestler. I don’t do anything gimmicky in my matches. I don’t dance, I don’t have my hands in my pockets, don’t try to make people laugh. I get in the ring, the bell rings and I’m better than anyone else. So for me, whatever I choose to do, wherever I go, the wrestling world revolves around me.
When asked if being the best wrestler in the world comes with a burden, he said:
“A burden, no, but it is tolling, it is taxing. I thrive in that situation. I live for that. I want to see if anyone can knock me off my throne, and I don’t think that anyone can. I don’t think there’s anyone that can say they are consistently, on point, the best in the world. I don’t think anyone can, not in AEW, not in WWE and not in New Japan Pro-Wrestling. Nobody can say they’re better than Will Ospreay.”
