NJPW star Will Ospreay has given his honest thoughts on former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega.
Ospreay and Omega have traded shots at one another on social media since Kenny left New Japan Pro Wrestling for All Elite Wrestling in 2019.
In a new interview with Wresthings, the former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion explained why he and Omega are on bad terms right now.
“Obviously, people want Kenny Omega, we’re not on good terms right now. When you leave the building and leave New Japan and pull me aside and say, ‘You need to step up for this company, I believe in you,’ and gas you up and gas you up hard, and you put your heart and fucking soul in trying to make this…the bar was high. For both myself and [Jay White], the bar was high. I actually care and want the fans who watch New Japan to be like, ‘this is professional wrestling.’ I’m doing it and destroying my body to do it, and then you cut me off online? What type of a cunt is that? I look at you and actually hold you in high regard, actual high regard, and I respect everything you’ve done. Even when you did the barbed wire exploding match that went to fucking shit, I actually was the type of guy that was like, ‘I hope they’re alright.’ The bombardment of tweets, I was probably the only guy that did that, and instead you retaliate by burying me to your shitty fans. I’m literally doing my fucking best. That’s why me and Kenny don’t get along. I’m sure he has something else to say, but it’s one of those things where I prefer him to stay away from me at this point. It’s not even funny. You can destroy guys like that. You’re saying this and you’re saying that, I don’t like two-faced people. Be real, just be real, that’s all I ask for,”
AEW and NJPW will be holding the Forbidden Door event on June 26 from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
Kenny Omega will most likely not take part in the event due to currently being sidelined with multiple injuries since the Full Gear 2021 event. There is no return date set for his return, which you can read here.
