Will Ospreay has called out a WWE Hall of Famer and a top AEW star in his feud against Canada.
At NJPW Dominion, Will Ospreay defeated Lance Archer to become the number one contender for the IWGP United States Championship.
Post match, Ospreay issued a challenge for Kenny Omega to face the IWGP United States Champion in his home country of Canada at Forbidden Door on June 25 from Toronto, Ontario.
During a backstage interview following the match, Ospreay gave his thoughts on Omega and Canada. He said:
“I’m walking into AEW territory once again. Only this time, Kenny, in the Tokyo Dome, I can’t tell you enough, you embarrassed me. It was 80% you, 20% Ospreay, we all know it.”
“I left covered in my own blood, a shell of a man. Now I have to get revenge. There is not a better place to do it than in your home territory. I’ll say it now. I f**king can’t stand Canada. I genuinely can’t.”
“Where is this f**king notion that all Canadians are nice? ‘Oh, sorry about that. Everyone is Canada is f**king nice.'”
Ospreay continued on to throw some shade to other fellow Canadians, such as fellow AEW star Chris Jericho and WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart, saying:
“Look at the evidence. Chris Jericho, a**hole. Don Callis, a**hole. El Phantasmo, a**hole. Bret Hart just moans all the f**king time. I just figure all you Canadians are fucking a**holes. It’s going to be real f**king good, walking into enemy territory. I’m going to welcome it.”
“I’m at my best when I’m a little f**king dickhead. I have a point to prove. I don’t care if your heart is broken and your family is awful. Boo f**king hoo. You ripped my heart out and ate it in front of me.”
“Only difference is, I’m still breathing. The heart you ripped out, I put it right back in and it’s still beating. That time I’ve been away, I’m an open heart surgeon.”
“I’m going rip your heart out and eat it in front of Canada. I need this one. I have to prove a point. I am the best wrestler in the world. It’s time to show up.”
Kenny Omega defeated Will Ospreay to win the IWGP United States Championship at Wrestle Kingdom 17.
As previously reported, the Omega vs. Ospreay rematch wasn’t the only bout set up at NJPW Dominion for the upcoming AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door event later this month as another dream match featuring Kazuchika Okada was also set in motion.
