Will Ospreay Discusses Recent Confrontation With Katsuyori Shibata


During a recent appearance on the “Wrestle Inn” podcast, NJPW star Will Ospreay commented on his confrontation with Katsuyori Shibata at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door, possibly facing him in the future, and more. He said,

“I feel like I’ve had that for a while, knocking off his Dojo boys and calling him a ‘d*ckhead.’ I let him get the one up there, I just had a 16-minute barnburner, I’m exhausted. Don’t get in my way again. The way I see things is, you’re lucky to be alive as it is. People are probably getting excited, but do you really want to put him against a guy whose finisher is an elbow to the back of the skull? I’m not going to engage with Shibata in a grappling match, do you think I’m some type of mad grappler? I know what I need to do and I stick to my ability. I’m not going to put myself in a situation where there is no chance of me winning a match. If we’re gonna wrestle, it’s going to be a normal pro wrestling rules match. I need you to sign something [a waiver]. If you get in the ring with me, I’m going to hit that elbow. That’s been the difference-maker. I need him to sign a waiver. I need the therapy after, that waiver needs to pay for the therapy I’m going to need.”
