Will Ospreay Says He ‘Nearly Died’ Earlier This Year


In a post on Twitter, Will Ospreay said he “nearly died” from the kidney infection he suffered earlier this year.

The NJPW star was out of action from May 15 to June 8 as a result of the infection and pulled out of shows for NJPW, RevPro, and Warrior Wrestling.

Ospreay took to social media on Wednesday to talk about the seriousness of this infection. He wrote,

“So it’s not really spoken about enough but May I nearly died. My infection was that serious Came back in 2 weeks. 3 months from that point, tomorrow I’m in the G1 Final on NJPW 50th Anniversary. I wish I could hear your voices. But I’ll fight with everything I’ve got.”

Ospreay defeated Tetsuya Naito in the G1 Climax 32 semifinals on Wednesday and will now face Kazuchika Okada in the finals of the tournament on Thursday.
