Will Ospreay shared some scary news in a new post on Twitter.

The top NJPW star mentioned that while he was dealing with a kidney infection this past May, which made him miss shows for Revolution Pro Wrestling and Warrior Wrestling, things got serious.

Ospreay missed time from May 15 to June 8. Ospreay revealed that he nearly died due to the infection. He wrote the following:

“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.”
