WWE’s Universal Champion Seth Rollins and NJPW’s IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay might not be able to clash in the ring due to working in different promotions, but that didn’t stop them going to battle on social media.
The heated dispute even saw Rollins tell Ospreay to compare bank accounts when Will claimed he’d worked more matches than Seth in 2019 so far.
I mean if you wanna talk numbers we can compare bank accounts too.
P.S. That’s counting a month off with a broken back…?? buddy.

Fast forward seven days, and Rollins has taken to Twitter to apologise to Ospreay for posting the aforementioned tweet about the pair’s respective bank balances.
In later tweets, the former Shield member would go on to explain how he still believes WWE “is the best pro-wrestling on the planet”.
After a few days to sit on it, I’d like to apologize to @WillOspreay for the tweet I sent his way about comparing bank accounts. It was dumb of me & not in line with my values. The moment I pressed the send button I knew it was trash, but I’m too stubborn for my own good.

Will Ospreay has responded to the apology and confirmed that there are no hard feelings on his end.
He would go on to ask Rollins to buy him a Nando’s before claiming to have “nothing but respect” for “The Architect”.
Just buy me a Nando’s 😉 ?
Honestly nothing but respect for you sir, just a bit of banter in my mind. I’ve followed your career since you were Tyler Black, I know it’s not all the money & it’s about the love.
Keep flying your flag & having fun. https://t.co/R8ssB8xh05
