Will Ospreay Reveals The Advice He Got From AJ Styles, & More


During a recent appearance on “The Indies” podcast with Booker T, Will Ospreay commented on getting advice from AJ Styles, what he tells talent about about getting advice, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On younger talent getting advice from other wrestlers: “I say to people, ‘Don’t get advice from everyone because everyone is different. Get advice from guys you respect.’ I remember, I did a show and I was trying to give feedback to someone I was tagging with. Someone comes up from over here and then someone comes from over here and you’re getting bombarded. I would have hated to be him because he got bombarded with information. In reality, I should have taken him to a corner and been like, ‘Here’s what you could have done better.’ Advice is always good, but sometimes you don’t have to take everybody’s advice. Take the guy’s advice that you respect and admire and you wanna be like. That’s where AJ Styles came in for me.”

On getting advice from AJ Styles: “I remember sitting down with AJ. I had a match with him and when I found out I was wrestling AJ Styles, a tear rolled down my eye. It was the greatest night of my life. He’s the sole reason I got into wrestling. AJ was it for me. I started crying, I was so thankful. How genuine he was and he took time to explain why we were doing things. I told him I was going to Japan. He was leaving for WWE. I told him I was going to Japan in April and he was like, ‘I’m proud of you, you’re going to do so well there.’ I won the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship and he dropped me a message like, ‘Bro, I’m so proud of you.’ It gets me every single time because that’s my hero and is such a big deal to me.”
