Will Ospreay recently spoke with Michael Wonsover of ESPN.com to talk about various topics. During the interview, Ospreay was asked about Orton’s recent comments about independent wrestlers doing too much and the need for them to slow down. Ospreay actually agrees with a lot of what Orton said.
He said, “I thought it was really funny. I do agree a bit, quite a lot of it. I do feel like wrestling has become very similar [in style] but just listen to that crowd from New York. It is that format, and everyone was going insane. I don’t know what to say but … dive.”
Ospreay was asked his friendship with New Japan Pro Wrestling star Jay White in which he reflected on how they met.
“Jay White is probably one of the most polite and down-to-earth guys I’ve ever met. He was brought up through the young lion New Japan Dojo, so he knows his stuff. He’s probably going to be the biggest star once he goes back to Japan. I consider him a friend, and I think he would even say, as well, that we were overwhelmed by the people and the kind of response we had with people saying that was probably the best match on the card, and some people were even saying it was probably match of the year. I was like, ‘Oh wow, that’s incredible.’”
