Will Ospreay issues statement on his injuries, announces that he will take time to rest

Will Ospreay, arguably the best professional wrestler in the world right now, will be taking some time off soon to heal up from nagging injuries. Ospreay’s style has put him on the map with hardcore fans in the United States and the United Kingdom but many point out that he gives 100% for every match even if he’s performing in front of smaller venues with smaller crowds. The injuries are catching up with him but I’m glad to see that he realizes that he needs to preserve himself because, at 23 years of age, he has yet to reach his prime as far as earning years in the wrestling business.

Ospreay noted on his Instagram account that he cannot continue wrestling his current style without time to recover and he will be fulfilling his upcoming commitments but he plans to rest once he gets back home.

Ospreay wrote the following:

Right so time to play the honesty game with you all.

I absolutely love professional wrestling but most of all I love British wrestling. Mainly because it reminds me of how we are not meant to be in the position we are right now but everyone has scratched and clawed to make British Wrestling so popular. Weather your a fan, wrestler, camera guy, promoter, merch girl, or the guy that takes the jackets backstage. You’ve all helped in making British Wrestling so god damn cool. And you know it’s worked because last night out of 24 participants 6 British lads & 1 guy from Amsterdam (pretty much adopted BRIT) performed in PWG’s BOLA. For that I’m very proud of all of them and our wonderful little country.

Now to address a matter that’s been the rumours of how messed up I am when it concerns my body. I’m not going to make the extent or my injuries public and being honest it’s nothing to be scared about or fear for my life. But if I carry on doing the style of matches I do at the rate I do them at my body has no time to recover and that’s when I’m gonna get hurt.

Having said this I would like to make it public that the things I wanted to do I need to like the British Triangle Championship I’m gonna need to put a hold on until my body is ready again. So saying this I’m going to honour some of my commitments as a champion in other places, and filling out my duties in touring with NJPW but once I’m in my home country I need to rest.

So here are the dates you’ll see me Wrestling in the UK:
• Southside – October 1st
• WCPW – November 9th
• RPW/NJPW – November 10th/11th
• ROH – 18th/20th Nov
• RCWA – 19th Nov

There are other dates im not announced for yet that will be talked about and there are dates promoters have booked me in for that I need to talk to you about.

Please do not panic or worry about me as I’m walking & healthy. But it comes a point where your body can only take so much and I’m making the adult decision to give my body time to heal.

Hope you can all understand where I’m coming from.

Love you all lots
