Ricochet and Will Ospreay respond to Vader’s criticism of their match at NJPW’s BOSJ

It looks like Vader has caused a stir online after his recent criticism of the amazing Ricochet vs. Will Ospreay match at NJPW’s Best Of The Super Junior’s tournament. Ricochet posted a statement on twitter (see below) and you can see Ospreay’s reaction if you scroll down further. I watched the match earlier today and I will say that it was fantastic and everyone should go out of their way to watch it.

“People don’t understand that “professional wrestling” is an art. And much like ANY art, there are endless ways to express it. It can LITERALLY be anything the performers in the ring want it to be. If two guys want to go out there and use light tubes and light each other on fire, then that is their way of expressing their style of wrestling. If they want to go out there and go hold for hold and keep it mat based, then that is their way of expressing their style of wrestling. If two guys want to go out there and clothesline each other real hard and chop each other for 5 minutes straight, then that is their way of expressing their style of wrestling. If two guys want to go out there and use comedy and make the people happy and laugh, then that is their way of expressing their style of wrestling. If two guys want to go out there and use aerial maneuvers and acrobatics to “wow” the crowd…then guess what??? That is THEIR way of expressing their style of wrestling. Although you may not agree or like a certain style does not mean that it isn’t wrestling. Did it used to be a certain way?? Yea. But just like anything it changed, it evolved.”

Ospreay decided to respond in the ring with a Vader Bomb. Check it out below:
